Getting to know me…

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to “Tuesdays with Tara Lynn”.  Today’s post is a bit different, today I am writing about myself.  I am not going to lie, it feels a little weird dedicating a post to talk about myself, but I thought it would be fun to share more about who I am for all my new subscribers and for those who have been following a long with me on my journey over the past year.  This past Saturday, I turned 41, so I decided to share 41 fun facts about me!  I would love to learn more about my readers, tell me some fun facts about you in the comment section below.

  1. I was born in California
  2. I moved to Des Moines, Iowa when I was three years old because my Dad was transferred with his job.

  5. I have one younger brother (Ryan) and a sister in-law (Molly).
  6. I use to live right next store to my brother and his wife (yes I bought a house next to my brother and he was ok with it)
  7. I have Scoliosis.  I had a metal bar infused in my back when I was 12 years old.  Without this surgery I would have died.
