In every post, I talk about something personal, but I suppose after a year of doing this, I should probably reveal more about myself than just my favorite brand of denim, or how I keep my skin looking refreshed. Here's 20 random facts that many people may not know. 
  1. I am the oldest of two; I have a younger brother, Jared. He is currently in law school in Southern California.
  2. I was born and raised in CT until age 26. I moved to Charleston, South Carolina for my first teaching job.
  3. I am a certified elementary school teacher in 3 states. I taught three years of 2nd and 3rd grade in South Carolina. I do not regret a single minute that I have been out of the classroom – it’s by far the smartest decision I ever made.
  4. I hate feet, especially other people’s feet. My toes are always painted and manicured nicely, and I wouldn’t be caught dead in flip flops with chipped polish, even in the dead of winter.
  5. I have a huge sweet tooth. I have my dad to thank for this. My first word was “dadoo,” which in my mind, meant “chocolate.”
  6. Even though I live by the beach, I spent every winter skiing until I was 26. 
  7. I broke my right hand and left wrist simply playing outside as a kid.
  8. I rode horses competitively until late in my 20s - my plan in the next 6 months is to get back into it, just for fun.
  9. Cobalt blue is my favorite color, although my wardrobe is made up of 90% neutrals.
  10. I am terrible in crowds and small elevators; my anxiety goes off the charts and I start to sweat and get panicky.
  11. I'm a control freak over things at work, but would rather let someone else choose where we're eating dinner; heck, they could even order for me! 
  12.  I make my bed every morning, even on the weekends - it gives me peace of mind.
  13. Due to a fear of heights, I lost consciousness while bungy jumping off the K Bridge in New's 150ft drop. There's footage to prove I actually did it! 
  14. I am always late for social gatherings, but will be 2 hours early to the airport for a domestic flight, even though we have a tiny airport and I have TSA pre-check.
  15. I started Not Set in Silverstone when I was transitioning out of teaching and trying to figure out what I really wanted to do with my life.
  16. I get restless living in the same spot for too long...I have lived in 4 different areas of Charleston and 2 areas of Charlotte. 
  17. Dating makes me super self conscious, and I've never even had a terrible first date. 
  18. "Sissy" was my nickname in my house growing up; to this day it's how my mother refers to me. 
  19. Two years ago, I tried to give up coffee and failed miserably....I drink at least 2 cups before 9am each day.
  20. Finn was given to me in 2013. I was not looking for a dog, but she's the biggest blessing in my life. She will be 5 next week!
There you have it! Hope you've enjoyed getting to know me a bit better. Feel free to ask me a question in the comments, and I'll be sure to answer! As always, thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
