Hi Melissa! I had to stop by and introduce myself… not only are we connected social media-wise, but I noticed you are at the top of my Similarity Network! Apparently we agree on Slumdog Millionaire and Tina Fey, dislike Bill O'Reilly, Teletubbies, and Applebees (which means we have awesome taste) and don't agree on French Onion Soup. All in all, not bad! Oh, and I love your motto, it's my summer song!:)
