Today I am turning 32! So, in honor of it, I thought it might be fun to share 32 things you may not know about me!
And I have to say…if 32 is anything like 31, I cannot wait for the year ahead! My 30s have been such an amazing chapter of growth. I feel like I’m truly hitting my stride and I’m so grateful for this life of mine. My recent move into a place of my own in Brooklyn feels like a great start to this next year, too.
Thanks to each of you for contributing to my life by being a reader of wit & whimsy! Hope you enjoy today’s fun facts.
- I was the Photography Editor for my college yearbook.
- I have a weakness for pretty candles. Packing up my apartment the other week made me realize just how many I have amassed (whoops!) #cantstopwontstop.

- If I had to shop at one store for the rest of my life it would most likely be Club Monaco.
