10 Things You Didn't Know About Me.

I often interview entrepreneurs and industry pioneers on Fridays but today is going to be a bit different. Today I'm sharing some details about me that you may not have known. Is that possible after blogging so darn long? You be the judge! 

Every once in a while, I think it's okay to be vulnerable. Here it goes...

  1. I'm 38 years old which is considered "antique" in blog years.
  2. I married and divorced in my early 20's. It was the most awful period of my life thus far and shook me to the core. It changed me forever and I am better for it.
  3. I re-married the love of my life shortly after and we've been together ever since...two delicious babies later. <we've know each other for 20 years!>
  4. I've been blogging for seven years. 
  5. I've been really depressed and climbed my way out of it. No one should ever be ashamed to admit they need therapy.
  6. I thought about having a third child but launched Oak St. Social instead. Now I just feel too old to start over again.
  7. I am gluten free as of 1.5 years ago. 
  8. I hate listening to people chew. nails.on.chalkboard.
  9. I have eczema and it's embarrassed me for years. It's manageable though.
  10. I believe everything happens for a reason. I look at some of my worst years, the mistakes I've made and I am so glad I made them. I really am. I didn't like who I was in my 20's but I like who I am now.

Happy Friday! Thanks for reading! xo
