32 Facts About Me

On Monday, I celebrated my 32nd birthday. When I turned 30, I shared one of my favorite blog posts – 30 things I'd learned by 30. While today's post isn't nearly as exciting, I did think it would be fun to share 32 facts about myself in honor of my birthday. So, here are a few things you may or may not know about me:

1. I'm the oldest of four children.
2. Horseback riding is the only sport I love.
3. Being tall is the best. I'm just shy of 6 ft.
4. When I tell stories, I always give too many details.
5. Jeans are my favorite item of clothing, even in the summer.
6. A skill I want to learn: how to use my DSLR camera.

13. My best friend and I met through blogging. 
14. Instrumental movie soundtracks give me life, especially Pride and Prejudice (2005).

17. This July, I'll celebrate 10 years of marriage.

26. I love buying cookbooks but don't love to cook.
27. Even though my kids wake up early, I'm still a night owl.
28. Eddie Redmayne and James McAvoy are my celebrity crushes.
29. I am definitely an overthinker. 
30. The sound of nails scratching tights/pantyhose makes me want to gag.
31. Birds make me irrationally nervous. 
32. My love for Jesus and my faith informs everything I do.

When I was making my list, many of the facts I initially typed were related to books. Since I talk about books in this space all the time, I decided to stick to things you're less likely to know about me. However, I will probably share another list in a week or two with some nerdy facts about my reading life. 


  1. I wasn't expecting number 5 - thank you for sharing your story.
    And being British, I am smiling at the thought of Eddie Redmayne and James McAvoy (and your year in Oxford). :)

  2. I’m right there with you on A Little Princess. The scene at the end where she cries out for her Papa gets me every time.

  3. I love your list, Hannah! <3 There were definitely some fun facts that I still didn't know even though we've been friends for a while now ;)
