Hi, I’m Sharlee! In all honesty, you’re probably reading the
122nd 123rd version of my “About Me.” Is it just me or is it the hardest page to write? It’s like being on a first date except nobody’s asking you questions. You’re just volunteering random bits of information like your guilty pleasures and how late you like to sleep in. And then you stumble upon someone else’s “About Me” and you swoon over their self-introductory skills. Well, I’ve done it a lot of times and I’ll tell you, because of that I know what a good “About Me” section entails:
A Good About Me Section points out the big and littles that make up the blogger.
I’m pretty easy to please. I’m happiest when I’m at home with my husband and my dog. My husband and I are on a mission to always be newlyweds and I am on a mission to always make the bed and not have dishes in the sink—I like to keep my house clean.
I am not a morning person, I need a good hour of alone time while I’m at work before I feel like having any real kind of conversation. I am not a crafty-person. I admire crafty people but I am not jealous of them. It is not anything I desire to do. I am not stylish. I never have and never will put these thighs in a pair of skinny jeans. I have more hoodies than I have anything else and I actually prefer to wear them. I don’t know how to do makeup. I love feeling pretty, but I try smokey eyes and it just isn’t ever very pretty. Among other non-talents of mine are: singing, organizing (unfortunately it’s not the same as cleaning), decorating my house, and being laid back.
But I am: a lover of country music (love it like a religion), an elementary school teacher, a semi-math nerd, and a BIG fan of: summer, jeans, and tans.
I am crazy about my husband, high heels, a good book, and feeling like a lady.
My husband says I’m good at being a wife. My mom says I’m good at everything.
Sometimes I like to think they are right. I won’t tell you what my brother and dad say about me. It’s not as nice, but it’s probably more true.
A good About Me Section tells you what this space is all about
I picked the title because I believe that we are all our best versions of ourselves when we believe in something. That doesn’t mean religion. That doesn’t mean love. It can, but it doesn’t have to.
This isn’t a blog exclusively about faith, though I do write about that from time to time. Not to isolate people, but to invite conversations…especially with those of different faiths.
This isn’t a blog exclusively about loving yourself, though it is a goal of mine to learn to love myself and especially my body…all of it…by the time I turn 30 and so I write about that on here, too.
This is a blog about all of those things tied together and a few other little day-to-day snippets and thoughts to top it all off.
A good About Me Section is filled with the blogger’s voice. Humor maybe? Sass? Honesty? Or just plain confidence.
Well, I can only hope on that one!
And last but not least, a good About Me Section tells you to grab your favorite drink and stay awhile—all the good bloggers say it, but I still love it. I feel like I’m in the South and am being invited to sit on the front porch in rocking chairs and drink sweet tea.
And so, yes, I will invite you to grab your favorite drink—my recent fave is Chocolate Almond Milk, but that’s not really a rocking chair type drink so we’ll go with the runner-up: Cherry Coke—and stay awhile.
