I don't know how on earth I missed this thread but I have one thing to say.
OH MY GOODNESS. Girl, you don't EVEN look like the same person. Wow. OMG, WOW. What a complete inspiration you are to me. You look probably 20 years younger and I know you must feel it too.
One more time. OH MY GOODNESS. Yes, I want to be you.
"Be who you are, say what you feel. Those who matter, don't mind. Those who mind, don't matter." --Dr. Seuss
