I'm A Little

{100 things}

i have seen a lot of bloggers complete a post called 100 things. i always find them interesting & extremely unique, and believe they truly help readers get to know who a blogger is. i was always nervous to complete a list, mostly because i found it daunting to try and think of 100 things about myself. but it’s a new year & i made a commitment to share more on imalittle. so, over the weekend i jotted down my list, going back in time, up to present day to think about 100 things you might be interested in knowing about me. it’s actually funny, while i thought it’d be hard to come up with 100 points, it was quite simple & i think i probably could go for 100 more. i guess there’s always next year. i hope you enjoy! happy monday 🙂
