  5. I so did not know any of these! Haha! Just found your blog and am a new follower! Some of your side-bar pics look like you live in or near Wilmington, maybe? I was born and raised there, and my parents still live there! That place has my heart!

    1. Iam from Wilmington! Such a beautiful place :) I plan on moving back within the next 3 years because it definitely has my heart as well.
