the husband gave me a beautiful bunch of flowers to celebrate (finally!) getting my braces off. man, did i hate those suckers. people would always say.. no you don't even notice them.. but please, how could you not. well no longer. braces on, jaw surgery done, braces off. thank gawd that period of my life is over. i keep catching myself thinking.. hey i'm a normal person again & it's awesome. to copy a phrase from one of lucy'srecent posts that i really liked.. it's bonkers brilliant!
