101 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Happy New Year everyone!

I figured I’d start 2018 off by doing a “101 Things” list. Now if you’re not familiar with this, you pick 101 things to write about – facts about yourself, books you want to read, your favorite movies, etc. Then, you nominate five fellow bloggers to do the same thing.

My nominees are as follows: Dashing DarlinThe 3 Day VacayFit N’ ClassyPeppered In StyleThe Everyday Mom Life
