Taylor!!! My name is Brenda. I’m a proud 29 yr old Swiftie! This is my family, who I have turned into some pretty big #Swifties too! I have been a fan since 2006. You have been such a big part of my life, and my families life as well!! I would only ever listen to your albums in my car, which turned my boyfriend and now husband into a pretty big fan. In 2008, my husband’s older brother was killed in Iraq, I remember driving in my car with him listening to your CD and singing together…and it really helped forget the pain of what happend. I have been to every concert that has come to Chicago with my Mom. It’s a another special bond we share that’s unbreakable! During your Fearless Tour, I was 5 months pregnant with my daughter Adrina. The very first time I felt her move, was at your concert! And True super fan was created that day! On my wedding day in 2009, my bridal party walked down the aisle to FEARLESS! My husband and I walked down the aisle for the first time to Love Story, and I only allowed your music to be played during dinner! I would play your album on my ipod for Adrina while she was in my belly, she was always so calm when I played it. Ever since then she’s loved you and looked up to you! I now have a 2 yr old boy named Rex, and he also loves you! His favorite song right now is Wildest Dreams! See taylorswift, you’ve been such as HUGE part of my life and continue to be! I hope we get the chance to meet you some day! We love you and are so proud of how far you’ve come!! Thank you for being you!!!! taylorswift

Dear taylorswift​ ,

My name is Romina and I am a Switie since I heard Love Story for the first time back in 2009. I remember they played the Music video on a local TV channel - thinking about it now it was actually a miracle because after that day the didn´t aired any advert until July ´15 when there was a spot about the „1989 World Tour“! Anyways –the song was stuck in my head all day long and I kept humming the words I remembered. I searched for more of your songs and just fell in love with them. Sadly it wasnt possible for me to attend any of your concert before the 1989 Tour [ JUNE 19th and 20th aka THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE ] due to being too young to travel alone to another country or tests I had at school

I really want you to know that you changed my life to the better and I cant tell you how thankful I am actually are.You helped to get through days were I honestly didn´t know what to do with my life anymore. Those months when “Last kiss” , “All  too well “ and “Come back be here “ described my life were so painful and hard I couldnt imagine being okay again….but you helped to get over it.

Although I am trying to forget this awful time its pretty hard sometimes but I know when I sign in on tumblr there will be some advice you gave someone that´ll help me as well.

So THANK YOU SO MUCH for being so brave and telling us your stories, bad experiences and other things you had to deal with by writing those songs that helped so many of us -  including me.

Btw I recently started to paint my nails like you can see in the pictures above.

Yours,

Romina

HEY @taylorswift!! 

my name’s Delaney and being that it’s only 13 days until my 1989 show (!!!) I figured it was the perfect time to make a sappy post so here it goes

I’ve been a fan since Our Song came on the radio one day while I was in the car with my mom. I was 7 years old and, little did I know, but that one catchy country song was about to change my life forever. Soon after Our Song, I started listening to Picture to Burn and eventually the rest of your album. Then Fearless came out and I fell even more in love. I remember for Christmas 2009 (I would’ve been 9), my mom got me a bag with your first Rolling Stone cover on it. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, in the bag was a pair of tickets to you Fearless Tour show at the Amway Center in Orlando. On March 5, 2010, My mom and I went to the show and it was a magical experience. Around the time Fearless came out, you inspired me to start playing piano and I’ve played it ever since. A few months later when Speak Now came out, it became the first album I had ever bought with my own money. I loved (and still do) every song on the album, and it’s still my favorite all time album to this day. I then was lucky enough to get concert tickets to the Speak Now World Tour! I still remember when my grandma called me saying she had bought me tickets and I was jumping up and down screaming. I went to see the show at the Amway Center on June 4th 2011 and it’s still one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. This was around the time I became a full time fangirl. I joined Taylor Connect, which eventually lead to tumblr when I was 12. Another awesome thing happened when I was 12 - Red came out! I was able to see you for the 3rd time in concert, this time from the pit! I went to the Tampa show on April 20, 2013 with my grandma. It was such a cool experience! Now, I’m 16 and I’m going to see you this Halloween at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa for your 1989 Tour!

You have been such an inspiration to me and gotten me through so much. I suffer from a lot of anxiety and listening to your music is one of the few things that can make me feel better. Thank you for everything you have done for me. When I first started listening to your music as a 7 year-old, I never imagine that you would ever know I existed, let alone follow me on tumblr. Thank you so so so so much @taylorswift

You are beautiful inside and out and I love you with all my heart

-Delaney

I love you Taylor!❤😍

Hey Taylor!:)❤

I just want to take a moment to tell you how much you mean to me!✨
The first time I ever heard from you was in 2009. I was watching the german auditioning show called “Popstars Du & Ich” where you did a surprise performance for the candidates. I still remember sitting on the couch recording your performance! 😍 ( You were performing You Belong With Me :D) I was literally blown away! I just loved it! 2 years later when your third album Speak Now was released, you announced coming to Germany for the Speak Now Tour! I bought tickets with twopaperairplanes89 for the Concert in Oberhausen Germany! And I was so happy to finally see you live!!! The concert was 2 Days after my Birthday so the ticket was my Birthday present😍 I was so excited!!! We also did a Poster with glow sticks on it which was hard work putting them on there because they fell off all the time😂 The concert was AMAAZING!!! I was blown away!! Sadly I didn’t get picked for the T-Party because I wanted to meet you so bad :(( That was the very first time I saw you live! In 2012 you released RED 😍 I loved the album from the very first minute I listened to it!! JUST AMAZING!! Then you announced the RED Tour but only US Tour Dates so at first I was so sad that you weren’t coming back to Germany..😔 But in 2014 you announced European Tour Dates including Germany😍😍 I literally FREAKED OUT haha😱😄✨ So I bought tickets for the Concert in Berlin on February 7th 😍 I started planning for my outfit and bought tons of glow sticks haha😄 The concert was one of the best nights in my life!!! 😍 This night was magical!!! I got to meet your mom and I was so excited!!! The moment when you announced Ed Sheeran as you surprise guest I freaaked out again!! It was just amazing!! Sadly I didn’t get picked for Club RED 😔 I really really wanted to meet you!!! But for me it was already amazing seeing you live!!😍
Then you also released 1989!!😍 I was so excited for this album because I had this feeling that this Album was going to be epic! I remember sitting on my bed with my Taylor Shirt on and my bracelets waiting ‘til midnight to finally hear it!! And it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I was speechless😍 I had goosebumps while listening to it!!! This was the perfect way to end my Year 2014😊 Then you also announced the 1989 World Tour and that you are coming to Germany again and I immediately bought tickets for the 2 Shows in Cologne!!😍

So now we are here in 2015. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU IN COLOGNE ON JUNE 19TH&20TH!!! You were there for me through your music when no one else was!!! And I’m so thankful to be part of your Journey for the last 6 years!!😍 I really look up to you!!✨❤ I love you so much I hope that one day I get to meet you and I can tell you all this in person!!😘

I’ve been debating whether or not to write this post all day, but here I go. I’m so incredibly sad to hear about Christina Grimmie’s death. I’m still in a bit of shock, and denial too. I remember watching her do covers back in 2009 and subscribing immediately. Over the years, I watched her grow, both as a person and as an artist. I requested songs, I waited for every video, I was a part of the Q&A’s and the live shows. When she made it on the radio, on TV, on tour, I was there for it all. Honestly, she was part of growing up for me, and her being gone doesn’t seem real, but I know it is, and that’s so messed up. All my love and best wishes go to her family and friends. Rawwk on, frand.
