20 things you probably don’t know about me

20 things you probably don’t know about me.

Hey this could be fun, a perfect way to get to know me the person behind Little Things Every Day Blog.   Let’s get started, shall we?  I love reading these types of posts, so I hope you enjoy learning some new things about me! Let’s get started..

1. I am a single mother, of one pretty amazing boy named Caleb.
2. I went to college for 3 years, studying to be a teacher. I feel shy one year and dropped out, soon after I started my small business. Now, years late I am looking to finish up college and gain that degree.
3. I was born in Michigan, raised in Texas and lived in Colorado for 11 years. Now I recently moved back to my birth state of MI.
4. Photography is a strong love and it runs in my family. All our family gatherings everyone has a camera in hand at all times. It's quite funny.
5. I started my own small business in the jewelry field 8 years ago and it for all those years it served as a full time job for me. It was hard work, but so rewarding.
6. Books & mineral stones are the only things I really "Collect", I'm not big on collecting things.
7. I try to live with a minimalism mind frame, less is better. No clutter // to fog my mind. I have a hard time holding onto things, I am always donating items. 
8. Gardening is something I came into 4 years ago & now it's a must for our family. Its like a type of therapy for me, so relaxing. My son benefits from learning about all the foods and herbs we plant & the best part we save money.
9. Speaking of saving money...I never buy us new clothing. Everything we own is found from thrift stores, for a fraction of the price. We are talking name brands, with tags still on. I am a very thrifty person. My sons shoes are the only new clothing purchases I make.
10. I was diagnosed with Graves disease when I was 25, I had two doses of radio active iodine to kill my thyroid. I then went from being hyper thyroid to hypo. It took years of pills & testing, but now my levels are stable and holding. 
11. I have a brother, who lives in NM
12. Leo is our new rescue kitty cat. I'll make another post so you can meet him, at a later time.
13. Rock hounding is a new hobby I picked up over the summer, it's a thing! Being that we live so close to the lakes I find tons of amazing fossils.
14. I am single, did I mention that? How about, I haven't gone on a "date" in 5 years....
15. I was substitute teacher for a year in Texas, I love kids and working with them.
16. I'm afraid of the dark & sleep with nightlights on. 
17. My mother is my best friend, I am lucky to live 2 miles down the road from her. We were living apart for 11+ years and recently this year I moved near her & my father. 
18. Flowers bring me much joy, receiving, picking, plating & just taking photographs. 
19. I own 4 birds {yes a cat too}, two parakeets & two finches. 
20. I listen to artists that have not yet been discovered, away from the main stream of music.

I hope you learned something neat about me today, what is one thing about you that you think no one else knows?
