Today officially marks 3 months since the launch of The Kalon Blog. Oh gosh, where has the time gone?!?!? These past few months have been a whirlwind of chaos, sometimes crazy and stressful, but mostly beautiful fun-filled moments!
I have SO much more to learn and room to grow as a blogger, but I want to thank everyone who has been a supporter of my blog from the beginning! Since today marks 3 months from the launch of my blog, I thought it would be fun to do a little “Get to know me” post. Although my blog is filled with things I love and little snippets of my life, it is still a very small part of me and who I am as a person. So here’s some fun questions so help you get to know me a little better!
