Four Things about Kaitlyn

I recently stumbled upon this post from Sarah where she shared 4 things about herself in various categories. It’s funny when you think about all the bloggers you follow every day and get a peek into their lives through photos of style, home, events, etc. but rarely do we know all the things that make each person unique like their favorite movies, TV shows, foods, etc. We really enjoyed reading more about Sarah, especially when I found out she also has a soft spot for Spaghettios…I SWORE that was just me ;)


 After you read our 4 things (stop by for Lisa’s tomorrow), we challenge you to share yours. We look forward to reading more about you…if you post it, tag us on Instagram and let us know!
