The Blonde One Was Called Freedom

It Makes Me Happy…

I was going through a bad time my senior year of high school and my friend Brittany said I should write down all the things that make me happy, and it should take the edge off of some of the bad vibes. Now, I lost that list in the past year, which makes me sad.

SO! The list is born again, new and improved. I’ll occasionally add to it.

  1. Dear Allyce,
    I love this. And I kind of squealed out loud when I saw POGS. And I love that every picture has the antique feel to it.
