I’m AJ Vaden, the host and guide of this digital sanctuary.
To help you decide if you want to hang out here more often, I’ve put together 14 intriguing, even entertaining, tidbits about me. So, let’s get started!
1) The Ultimate Gift: A Tushy
The top spot on my favorite gifts list is occupied by an unexpected item – a Tushy. You got it right, it’s a bidet attachment for your toilet. And let’s be clear, I’m not an affiliate, or trying to sell you anything! It’s just that awesome.
2) My Indulgence: Chips and Salsa
The way to my heart is simple – a bowl of chips and salsa. Not all treats have to be healthy, right?
3) My Little Slice of Paradise: Florida’s 30A
I’m a beach lover, and my favorite place to soak in the sun is along the Gulf Coast of Florida, 30A (aka Nashville’s beach)!
4) My International Love: Mexico
I’ve had the amazing privilege to travel the world, but Mexico will always hold a special place in my heart.
5) My Linguistic Journey: A Minor in Spanish
Surprise, I speak Spanish. Kind of. But I did minor in it and spent a summer living abroad in Puebla, MX.
6) A Blonde-turned-Redhead
Would you believe that this redhead was actually born with blonde hair? As a child, I had striking white-blonde hair that gradually darkened to a sandy hue around first grade. Over time, it settled into my kind of red, which I am proud to sport today.
7) A Family Legacy: Construction Business
I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. My family’s construction business has been around for over 70 years.
8) Making the First Move on Rory
Now, for a dash of romance! I had to encourage my now husband to make the first move with a little nudge and a loud “just do it” declaration. Best decision ever!
9) A Dream in Progress: Writing Kids’ Books
One of my dreams is to write children’s books with my kids.
10) My Sleeping Buddy: Squishy
I have a special pillow named Squishy that I have been sleeping with for over 17 years.
11) My Vegan Journey
Once upon a time, I was a vegan for five years.
12) The Dancing Days
I started ballet when I was 3 years old and danced all the way until I graduated high school.
13) Sports Fan
SEC all the way… although I am always a hometown fan so “Go Titans”!
14) I’m Not Very Good But Love To Play
Finally, my preferred sport to play is tennis. Although I won’t claim to be a pro, I love every minute spent on the court.
And there you have it! Fourteen snippets of my life to help you get to know me better. I hope some of these resonated with you, and I can’t wait to embark on this journey of personal development and positivity with you. See you soon!
