11 Facts About Me

    I loved reading this! 🙂 I also am allergic to gluten. Cutting it out has turned my life around and I enjoy the challenge of it. However, I do not enjoy the comments of “Oh, you’re one of those people.”

    Have a good one! 🙂

    I really enjoyed reading your facts. I just want to say snap! I love the colour blue, have ever since I was a little kid. And I ADORE Labyrinth I like the “Chilly Down” scene with the Firey’s when they try to take off Jennifer Connolly’s head. That song is so catchy.
