Twenty Things To Know About Me

As I was planning content for the blog, I realized that in my four years of blogging I had never shared facts about myself. It wasn’t that I did not want to, but more of I was not yet comfortable with sharing personal details about me. 

Now that I have blogging more or less under my belt, I now know that a huge part of it includes sharing more life experiences with my community. The nice part of having my own site is that I have the right to not share aspects of my life too! For 2019 one of my goals is to be more open and honest about how I feel. Best believe that I have horrible days, lazy days, sad days, really fun days, etc. just like you. When you visit The Girl From Connecticut site I really hope that you’ll have a more meaningful experience.
