    Even though we have known you for a while now, I learned some things here. Might have thought that purple was your favorite color. Also would have figured you to favor Backstreet Boys, but that is OK too.

    Fellow Dr Pepper fanatic here! Some people think it’s gross and I just don’t get it. Also a huge YA lover too. I even started a Forever YA book club. They’re usually just such fast, fun reads.

    Oh my gosh, love your golden retrievers! I used to dogsit one and he was the sweetest, funniest dog. His owners didnt let him on the couch, but when I was there, he’d try to sneak up there because he thought I didn’t know.
