I have said this before and I will continue to say it: YOU GUYS AMAZE ME!!
Back in September when I posted my first fic, I never EVER in a million years would have guessed I would be here today, with 1,000 of you wonderful, supportive, amazing followers. Your words of encouragement are what keep me going each and every day!
Before I get to the fun stuff, I want to take the time to thank some of the people that have continually shown their support and encouragement, and most of all love. I know I am going to miss some, so I do apologize in advance.

29:A song that you remember from your childhood: “I am a Man of Constant Sorrow” by the Soggy Bottom Boys from the movie “Oh Brother Where Art Thou”. My parents used to listen to the soundtrack constantly in the car, and I love all the songs but this is my fave.
12:A song from your preteen years: “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol. My mom was a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan and she hated Izzy and Denny so of course we blasted that song he died too all the time in the car
“Old man sleeping on the green Can’t help but wonder what he’s seen.”
