Some of you may already know me personally (thanks friends and family for reading!) but lots of you don’t. So instead of boring you with a whole bio, here’s some random fun facts about me. If you want to read a little about about how I started this blog, visit my About page.

1.     I can write backwards.

2.     Other than my hometown and college, I’ve lived in Nantucket, London, San Francisco and Fort Myers, FL.

3.    I am obsessed with my pit/greyhound mix Luna who I rescued as a college graduation gift to myself.

4.     I grew up on a small quiet street in Connecticut where more than half of my neighbors were cousins, and my grandparents lived across the street.

5.     I got into the Fashion Institute of Technology but decided not to go. Then I tried applying again to transfer freshman year and they denied me. Definitely meant to be that I didn’t go.

6.     I’m 5 feet tall exactly. When I got my driver’s license when I was 16 in Connecticut, I had to give my weight and height and I said 5”1 because I thought for sure I would still grow. I did not.

7.     I was one of the first people hired at Airbnb and worked there for almost 4 years.

8.     Since I’ve worked from home for most of my adult life, I know just about every single coffee shop downtown and in Mount Pleasant so let me know if you want a recommendation!

9.     Three out of my 4 grandparents are 100% English and 2 were born in England. I’m also a little Irish- that’s where the hair and freckles come from.

10. I’ve had a crush on my husband since I was about 17 years old, and the feeling was reciprocated but neither of us knew this until years after high school and we didn’t start dating until even another 3 years after that. <3
