About Me

Hey ! I’m V, every one calls me that. I recently entered the world of 30 somethings. 

I was born and raised in Georgia. My childhood was typical. Growing up I played outside a lot with my friends. We rode bikes around the neighborhood, swam, talked about boys, climbed in my climbing tree, and I helped my parents do a lot of yard work. My mom owned a restaurant and we had a garden, which I can now appreciate. My parents separated when I was in 2nd grade and my dad and I did not have a close relationship until 2012.

At the young age of 19 I moved to Athens to get away from my small town. That was the best decision I’ve ever made. Shortly after moving to Athens, I began dating a guy I grew up with. After about 9 months living in Athens, he took a job that moved us to Atlanta.

We dated off and on for about 3.5 years before he proposed on New Years Eve. A month later he cheated on me. I walked into our bedroom {after a fight} to find him asleep with another girl. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.

A year later I met M. We dated off and on for about 5 years. I suppose it was one of those relationships where we needed to grow with and without each other. Some how we always make our way back to each other. And then, apart, again.

I have one fur child. See the page on him here.

Over my 30 years I have learned a lot about myself; my faith, my political views, my heart, and my mind. I try to live in the moment because you only get one chance at this thing called life, and when it’s over, GAME OVER.

Here are some fun, random things about me…

  • I’m obsessed with shoes.
  • I’m a list person. Obvi.
  • I’ve been every shade of hair color, and blondes totally have more fun. Hands down
  • I LOVE weddings and everything wedding related. Especially cake. I mean, who doesn’t love cake? 
  • I love skim milk.
  • My favorite time of the year is when the weather is warm. I hate being cold!
  • If I could go on a date with any celebrity, it would be with David Beckham.
  • I typically can’t listen to a song all the way through without changing it.
  • I have thanatophobia.
  • I look forward to sleeping, especially taking naps.
  • The only foods I do not like are grapefruit, beets and honeydew. I also can’t stand anything spicy.
  • I am a better baker than I am cook.
  • I have insane allergies. I am allergic to dust, mold, animals, pollen, weeds, grass.. I give myself shots once a week to help build up my immunity.
  • I have never broken any bones, but I have fractured a finger.
  • I want to travel the world. See my Bucket List.
  • Upon meeting me for the first time, I am usually shy. Friends have often said that once you get to know me, I don’t shut up.
  • I tend to ask a lot of questions. I’m a very curious person.
If you are still curious and want to know more about me (seriously I doubt anyone will ever see this), here is more info on me.
