Hi ya’ll! To celebrate my new “lifestyle” section on SSD, I wanted to share 15 things about myself you may not know. You may know some of these, but hopefully there’s some you don’t! I hope you are as excited for this new section as I am. The possibilities are endless!

Happy reading!

  1. Unless its my oldies records or Taylor Swift, I’m listening to podcasts.
  2. I’m all about fitness (I run and do kickboxing three times a week) but…
  3. I love eating, especially trying out new restaurants!
  4. Baking is one of my favorite stress relievers
  5. I have a really horrible attention span when it comes to TV shows, but docuseries are my favorites and can usually keep me interested.
  6. My day job is as a breaking news, crime, and courts reporter for AL.com and The Birmingham News.
  7. I hate telephone calls, unless they’re with my fiancé or my mom
  8. My fiancé is my blog photographer and is such a good sport about it!
  9. To say I am an animal lover is an understatement. My four dogs (one’s mom’s, but I claim him anyway) are my children.
  10. I love holidays!
  11. Dirty Dancing and It’s A Wonderful Life are my all-time favorite movies.
  12. I love crime shows, like Forensic Files and Snapped
  13. I’m extremely family-oriented, and my mom is my best friend in the world
  14. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and no weekend is complete without a breakfast at a local diner or Cracker Barrel.
  15. Blogging is my favorite thing, and I hope it shows in the Southern Style Diaries!
