  2. Erin says:

    I loved reading this too. And not just because I got a shout out (although it might have something to do with it.) 🙂

  3. Vanessa says:

    What a great list! I’m totally getting a glass covered cake plate now. And I’m really into the cute apron thing. You’re an awesome person. It’s tragic that I never see you anymore. Take care!

  4. C. says:

    Oh my stars! I learned a lot of good things here. Number 34 is my favorite because I dig that Hymn too. When a friend is sad, I make them sing it with me to create tears of joy.

  5. Mandy says:

    Alright, who doesn’t love Pride and Prejudice? I bet it’s someone in MY family, huh?
    So to do this exercise, you just write 100 things about you, is that right? I think I might do it. Tell me if I’m doing it wrong. 🙂 Oh, and #25 is my favorite. Go figure.

  6. DeeAnn says:
