For my first blog post, I decided to take a page out of Vogue’s book, 73 Questions.  If you don’t know what I am referring to, recently Vogue has featured videos asking 73 rapid fire questions to a handful of Actors.  Blake Lively, whom I adore, was one of these people so I thought it would be fun to answer the same questions.  See my answers below, and watch Blake’s video here.
