What story does your family tell about you?
I had very long, tangly, unruly hair for a little girl and I would never brush it. The only way my mom could get me to sit down long enough to brush my hair is if we played “beauty salon” and she was the stylist and I was the client. High maintenance? Perhaps. I consider it grooming me for my future.

Attended the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Brushing my teeth. No one wants funky breath.
