1. When I met this young woman I was so caught up in talking to her that I forgot to ask what her name was. She was so vibrant and full of life. Look at her. Flawless. We talked about how she looks like a teenager and about how mild the summer has been. Even though I don’t know her name, I’m still happy that I got to celebrate her in my blog. Simply beautiful.
