Pepper has made her eyes a canvas. Lately she's been too busy to do anything artistic, so every morning she manages to create some unique combination of eye color for the day. Although the older crowd is often appalled she is usually met with approval by the younger ones. I love her distinctive style and the courage she has to be herself. It's so interesting to watch my daughter become a business woman. From a shy little girl who would only talk to me, to a vibrant young woman who is sincerely interested in conversing with everyone!
Dave and his Starbucks Cronies!
