Hey y’all! First, thanks a million for being here to join me on this journey! You are so appreciated. I’ll try to keep this as short as I can, so bare with me.

I tried blogging back in 2017, but it wasn’t a good time. I’ve taken the time to search, listen, and watch to get to know more about this world I want to make my own. SO, here I am! No, I’m not famous, crazy successful or rich, or anything in between that you think a blogger would/should be. I just love it, love to write, love creating good content, and want to do just that: what I love!

If you don’t know me, my name is Kait(lyn) Goins. A ton of people who do and have known me would even be caught off guard by the last 3 letters on my name, and some have argued newbies that it isn’t my name. I’m from a very small town, Andrews, South Carolina. While many people have their opinions, growing up in a small town has humbled me and made me thankful for the simple things!

When I graduated high school in 2014, I got as far as I could from my small town, and fell in love with Clemson. Sadly, it became too far from home, and I was coming home a LOT. After moving back, I started at Francis Marion, where I still am. Don’t judge! I recently changed my major to Chemistry, and will graduate next May(fingers crossed right?!). I would have loved to major in Marketing or Business, but my science background would put me too far behind. I still love my major, though! Please don’t ask what I want to do when I graduate because if I’ve learned anything by now, I cannot plan more than 6 months in advance.

Aside from school, I have family and friends that I love more than anything. They are the ones who keep me going everyday, and I hope they always know how thankful I am! PS if you see small children all over my social media, they are not mine, but I promise I will still claim them 😉 I work at a boutique in Kingstree, SC, the Paisley Pearl, which is where I get to do most of what I really love to do in life. Talk about a job that’s not a job, but more of a fun and exciting passion!

I’ve been hitting the gym hard, and I try to motivate everyone around me. Seriously… I will encourage anyone who needs it because it really is so self rewarding, and we can all benefit from a healthy lifestyle! Like the gym, my faith is a work in progress, but I try everyday just like everyone else. I am nothing short of the imperfect Christian, but just know that God is watching you, so don’t judge me on that one 🙂

It’s so easy to look at bloggers and think “They think they’re perfect,” and I’m here to say I DO NOT think this about myself. Quite frankly I’m harder on myself than you’ll ever be. If you have negative Nancy on your shoulder, sorry hunny because I beat you to it. These pictures(gonna insert later) are a taste of what it took to get the “right one,” and it still wasn’t perfect because I critique every detail. I’m here to do what I love, talk about the things I enjoy, and if I can help anyone along the way, then I’m more than happy! I’ll blog about different things, but please feel free to ask to see what you want to read about because if you don’t want to read it, why am I here?!

I told you it would be short, didn’t I?! Oops… still love ya though, and I hope you love this journey I am on! Thanks again to everyone who has kept up with my Insta stories and all of your kind messages to encourage me, I promise I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart! Well, I’ll let you go now, please subscribe, follow on IG @ kaitlyngoinsblog, and show the love!
