20 Facts About Me

With a new year, comes more chances to live out life’s adventure. Because that’s what my hope is. I hope to share a light on living adventurously, no matter what it may look like (Read my blog “How to Live Adventurously”)
But I feel, in order for me to even attempt to inspire others – I think it’s important to get to know your writer. I mean, I wouldn’t want to read some random girls’ blog – but read from someone I can relate to and understand.
So, with a new year – here are 20 things you should know about me:
  1. I was born and raised in Texas. There – I grew up on football, BBQ, and country music. It’s what makes me… ME. ❤️
  2. I am a teacher. I teach the 5th grade. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and it’s what I was called to do.
  3. I have the best parents and brother. For those who watched me grow up, you know how important my family is to me. And for those who don’t know me, I will brag. I love my parents and my brother. They made me the woman I am today. ❤️
  4. I married at the age of 23 to my best friend. Dakota is my wonderful husband and he is the biggest reason why I can live my most adventurous life. 💕
  5. I am a bookworm to my core. Books are my getaway. They are the way I relax and the place I can always go to when I need it.
  6. I drink whiskey. Wine is good. Martinis are delicious. But whiskey is where it’s at. My go to drink is a Jack & Coke.
  7. I am a hopeless romantic. I love Nicholas Sparks books and watching The Bachelor. 🌹
  8. I love the outdoors. I can’t get enough of my life in Colorado! The weather, mountains, and sunshine – it’s my happy place.
  9. I get “hangry”…. all the time. I love food and I am constantly hungry! I will never turn down a good meal and will eat about everything.
  10. Though, I do not like Mac n Cheese. Believe me, I have tried! I know how important this meal is to 20 year olds, but I just can’t do it.
  11. I love watching football, basketball, and hockey. Dallas Cowboys, Mavs, and Stars all the way baby!! 💙💚
  12. I hang with the guys. Most of my closest friends are guys. We get along, we like to drink, and they haven’t titled me as just – the wife.
  13. A dream of mine is to travel more. If I could, I would spend a year traveling around to beautiful places and writing.
  14. I have a lot of fears. It’s true… I can act fearless, but the truth is – I’m already thinking about a million ways I could die before doing something.
  15. I’m not a girly girl, but love to look GOOD. 😉 I’ll wear my jeans and a t shirt all day, but when it’s a night out? Watch out! (I will throw on glitter before I go) ✨
  16. I try my best to live a more positive life. I really don’t like to focus on the negative. I am not perfect in this, but do my best.
  17. When needed, I will rock some karaoke. 🎶
  18. Not much bothers me. I have been known to be pretty chill. I’m open to others’ opinions and feelings.
  19. I’m an introvert until you know me. I won’t be the one to approach others. I’m not much of a sharer, but once you get me, we will be best friends.
  20. I’m a dreamer. My mind is always filled with hopes and dreams. Now, I just need to pursue them. Got any tips?
I challenge you to start the new year being YOU. Don’t pretend to be something your not. Continue to be the better part of YOU. We all want to see you living out life the way YOU want to live it.
As always, thank you for reading.
Xoxo,
Tori
