The Rules
There are five rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you’ve tagged them.

11 Random Things about Me

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    1. Awww, Thanks Melissa!

      I want to get a lily on my forearm removed. I love it, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted (I wanted a small flower) and it's kinda in an odd spot. Oh well, random thing.

      Can't wait to read yours!
