Hello 2018!

Somewhere between all the Happy New Year post and the joy of having a fresh start, I realized that I never officially introduced myself to you. I started blogging consistently six months ago, gained many new followers but to be honest I  have been pretty bad about connecting with you.

As a result, I plan to do a better job this year of engaging with you guys! So, let me start off the new year right by officially introducing myself to you!!!

Hey, My name is Brandi and here are 18 randoms facts to help you get to know me better!


1.) I think that I have the coolest birthday ever! It’s July 3rd and the best part is that I never have to work the day after! Thank you Fourth of July:)

2.) I am the youngest of 3 children. I have one brother and one sister. I think I was the oops child! That’s my story and I’m sticking too it!

3.) I will be 36-years-old this year but I still get carded! I take it as a compliment every single time.
