6 of My Weird Hidden Talents

Hey! It’s the end of the month, so you know that it’s time to get a bit personal. For September, I’m letting you in on 6 of my weird hidden talents. Let me preface this by saying I’m not sure all of these are exactly what you’d define as hidden…

Let’s Talk Guilty Pleasures

Let’s talk guilty pleasures for this month’s personal, get-to-know me post. We all have and experience them! This was a fun list to come up with – no shock here that most of mine involve food, music and TV/movies. The three primary things that make my life go ’round. 😉…

My 7 Biggest Pet Peeves

I’m really digging this whole get-to-know me thing at the end of each month! Not only because I get to share some random stuff about myself, but I genuinely enjoy everyone that participates with their own answers in the comments. Let’s keep it rolling this month – we’re chatting all…

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself.

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
