13,000 Things we love about Taylor

Mon, Jul 9, 2012 at 6:05 AM

This is a little game about Taylor
I hope we can reach 13,000 comments


What do you love the most about Taylor



write down your number and then start


first person
#1 I love her songs
second person
#2 I love her guitar




I'll start
#1 I love her curly hair
Yesterday is called the past,
Tomorrow is called the future,
Today is a gift
That's why it's called the present
Taylor Swift
