10 Things You May Not Know About Me

It's been a while since I've done any sort of post directly about me, so today I thought I would sit down and share ten facts that y'all may not know about me. I've gained a lot of new readers in the past few months, and I haven't really written anything to welcome y'all. So if you've started reading my blog lately - hi! hello! nice to meet ya! I hope this post helps you get to know me better! For this post, I tried to think of some facts that I don't think I've ever told y'all. I've done a few "get-to-know-me" posts in the past, so I tried to come up with some unique facts about me that you haven't heard yet!


1 // Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it - the crisp, cool, breeze; the ever-present hues of red and orange; the cozy sweaters and tall riding boots; pumpkin-spice everything... fall is just perfect. Sadly, I live in Texas, so my fall is usually still around 80 degrees, but I love the season all the same!

2 // If I could go anywhere in the world, I'd choose Spain. The list of destinations I want to visit is long, but Spain is definitely at the top of it. For some reason, I've always wanted to visit Spain - taste the amazing food, see a LaLiga soccer game, look at all the beautiful architecture... it just sounds like such a fun place to visit!

3 // I really love grocery shopping. It may seem like such a mundane task, but it's one that I truly enjoy. Going to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Central Market is one of my favorite pastimes. I think it's so fun to pick out new foods to try and think up new meals to create! Also, I could most definitely carry on a conversation about Trader Joe's products for at least a good 30 minutes (they just got their pumpkin things in and I'm especially addicted to their pumpkin ravioli and fall pasta sauce.)

4 // I have a hard time falling asleep with the light on. For whatever reason, I can't fall asleep unless it is completely silent and it's completely dark. Even a small crack of light shining into my room from underneath the door makes it hard for me to fall asleep.

5 // The next skill I want to learn is Bible journaling. My sweet friend Ashley made me the most gorgeous Bible for my birthday, and it has margins in the pages for journaling and writing. I really want to learn how to start Bible journaling, but I have no clue as to what supplies to use or how to do it. If you have any tips, tricks, or suggestions, please leave a comment letting me know!

6 // I am a visual learner. I learn best through highlighters, colored pencils, and staring at pages upon pages of notes and flash cards. Figuring out my learning style has really helped me do well in school and has allowed me to effectively study for tests.

7 // My favorite color as of late is blush pink. I've been seeing it everywhere this fall, and I'm absolutely smitten! I already have quite a few pieces of clothing in the hue, and I have my eye on a few more. It's so sweet and girly, but the subdued tone makes it feel more autumnal.

8 // This year, I'm taking soccer, art, journalism, and Spanish as my school electives. Alright, I'm running out of facts here, so I thought I'd just include my school electives! Soccer has been so fun thus far, and I surprisingly am really enjoying art! My journalism class moves slowly, but is really interesting and fun, and Spanish is probably my favorite class this year.

9 // Chick-Fil-A is the only fast food place I like. Aside from chicken and fish, I don't really eat meat, so I'm not interested in a lot of fast food places anyway, but I generally think fast food places are kind of greasy and gross. However, I am completely addicted to Chick-Fil-A! I love their nuggets (who doesn't??) but my go-to order is their Grilled Chicken Sandwich with a side of fries, a packet of honey mustard, and a medium lemonade. I haven't had Chick-Fil-A in way too long, and it's making me hungry right now...

10 // I just joined YoungLife! A lot of my friends and I joined YoungLife this fall (if you don't know what YoungLife is, it's basically a youth group type organization that meets every week) and I'm loving it so far! We've only had two meetings, but they've been really fun and they allow me to get to see some of my friends who go to a different high school than I do.

I hope y'all enjoyed reading this post and it allowed you to get to know me a little better! I'd love to get to know y'all better, too, so feel free to leave a comment below telling me a fact or two about yourself!
