Braces, Gone

With her friends in Greenport last weekend, my daughter flashed pearly whites that were divinely (to her) free of any metal encumberances. The braces, after three years and two oral surgeries, had come off the day before. She smiled a lot.

The girls swam in a cerulean blue pool and laughed with a manic and adorable baby brother and rode a scary high ferris wheel and read magazines while lazing on the dock. 

Later they ran up and down the beach and pretended that final exams were not less than a week away. Ah, to be 16 and joyously in the moment.
