12 Things You May Not Know About Me

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

It's been a while since I have done an about me post, so I thought it would be fun to share a current one with y'all, along with 12 random facts you may not know about me as a re-introduction of sorts.

I've always had a passion for art and writing and I am frequently finding inspirations and lessons throughout my daily life. I'm humbled to be from North Carolina and have such a sense of pride by being blessed to still live in such a beautiful and fascinating area. 

My blogging adventure first began in 2011, when I decided to create a place to share my experiences and love for fashion, crafting projects, and recipes. Life is hectic and sometimes I can find myself at a loss for words, which means you may not see me updating on a daily basis. Contrary to that, I am always jotting down thoughts and ideas and the number of "draft" posts I have far exceeds those published.

I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and to put all your faith in Jesus and His timing ((Proverbs 3:5-3:6)). I'm glad you found me and decided to follow along as I share posts about life, fashion and everything in between..with a little southern flare added, of course.

  1. I love this post. I am the same way about drafts vs published posts. I have eaten at 0 of those Mexican places so they are all going on my list now. I refuse to watch Hocus Pocus until Halloween. I can't wait to hear more about your store. That does sound like placing a lot of faith and trust in the Lord.

  2. I'm a Sarah Elizabeth too! Chip and dip, classic and perfect for any occasion.

  3. You really just spoke my language. You like my favorite local shops and my favorite local restaurants! I love your leap of faith! Can't wait to hear more about it! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
