73 Questions with Jordyn

 The idea of this post came from one of my favorite (Alabama!) bloggers, Dorothy over at Prep in Your Step. She apparently got these questions from something Vogue does, but to be honest-I barely have time to read the nutrition label on food, much less many magazines right now. 😂
I loved her answers so much that I decided I wanted to participate too, so here goes!
1. What is something that you can't live without? My family; seriously without Chris, Charlie, & Forrest I'd probably go crazy. 

2. What is a secret talent of yours? This may not be a talent, per say but I can always find something to eat in the kitchen. If I'm given enough time, I can whip something that tastes pretty good up.

41. If you had a tattoo, what would it be & where would it be? I've made it to 26 without a tattoo, so I probably won't be getting one but if I did, I've always wanted  a small stick horse figure about the size of a quarter, maybe behind my ear or on an ankle, in remembrance of my Paint.
