  18. favorite thing about you blog.
    I think I love how you are yourself and post silly pictures and not care what people think. I love it when people don't put on a show to make others like them and just be themselves, no matter how unattractive it may seem to some. (It's always attractive to somebody).
    Thanks for all the smiles!

  19. I love that you are excited about readers, I am also new to the blog world and I'm the same way! congrats on 50 :)
