That's right not only is this little lady almost a junior. I'm also quite technically going to be an almost brace face for the next year. YAY! Gosh life is good until your orthodontist kindly suggests that your teeth are completely in need of some major dental doings. 

Lately life has been full of mishaps, cracker eating, and baby kisses. 
Gosh I love baby kisses.
Stick around ten years and I'll be bragging about my own. 

In more recent news: 

I ate a cup of noodles today. Picked out all the carrots. Processed vegetables really scare me. 
I ran the dog, brushed my teeth, and am on my to get a starbucks tea. 

Life is incredibly good. 

Today I got to thinking about how most people in this pretty little world probably don't care that I am off to get starbucks at this hour. Or that I brushed my teeth today. 

I also got to thinking about how irrelevant those thoughts are compared to the actual reasons why I blog. I blog because I LOVE that I am creating a memory. I blog to connect with young women my age and inspire them internationally to be the best that they can be. I blog to get a sense of world connections, financial management, and happiness. 

Because writing makes me happy. Connections make me happy. This little website makes me happy. 

In my humble opinion that is enough to write openly about my fear of processed veggies. Rather you care or not is your choice. But I can promise you that the second that you stop caring what other people think and start caring about what makes you happy that you're going to need invisaline because you won't be able to stop smiling. 

Recently I genuinely and to the core stopped worrying about the high school stuff that used to periodically get under my skin. I have learned to put everyone else's shoes on and think about the fact that they too are their own people. The moment that I started to realize that the entire world was not in fact out to get me was pretty much the best one ever. 

& maybe just maybe my hate for frozen carrots just scored me a new friend. because that sweet people, is how weird us bloggers are. 

Now go out and smile. & praise Jesus most of you are already high school graduates. See you on the other side loves. Two years down. Two to go. But hey who am I kidding. High school has it's moments.  

Sending a bunch of baby kisses your way. 
That's how much I love y'all.
