Just one year ago (February 23, 2013) Anna got braces on a day that a blizzard hit town. They called and said the office was empty and they could put the braces on if we could get her there. Yesterday, on a day of 75°, she got the braces off. She’d been keeping it a secret; she figured it was a surprise that she got them, so she wanted it to be a surprise that they were being removed.
She came home with congratulations balloon tied to a caramel apple. It reminded me of when my braces came off (25 years ago) and all the foods that I ate because I finally could.
Such a beautiful smile, Anna!
