Get to Know Me Tag

Hello lovelies! How is your Sunday going? I've started mine off with a huge pot of coffee, that I intend on drinking every bit of. I'm destined to make today a productive one, and get all I can done. Do you ever feel like you can't relax, even on your days off? That's me today! So today I wanted to do something a little different. I pulled from Pinterest a huge list of "get to know me" questions, so, you could do just that! I'd love to open up to my readers and get a bit more personal on the blog. I've gained a ton of new readers this year, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get to know me more.
