    1. OMG! So many of your random facts make me think we were separated at birth! :P
      It was so much fun to learn more about you.

    2. Great answers Emma! Thanks for taking part :)

    3. Hi Emma! Thank you for the nomination! Ana had already nominated me and I did my Liebster post last week. I'll answer two of your questions here: I believed in Santa Claus until I was 9. I'd begun having serious doubts, and so JUST BEFORE XMAS, I asked my grandmother and she told me the truth. My mother was mad.

      Second question: I have two favorite movies. Flashdance and Four Seasons. I've seen both of these multiple times.
