Personal experiences with the name Lanie: | Edit

In middle school, there was this girl named Elaine Bennett, but everyone called her Lanie. She was really pretty-all blue eyes and blonde hair, like a Disney princess-, good at drama and acting, and, of course, a great singer. Plus, she could really write. I remember she won best in state for a script she wrote and she had this notebook just for poems.
