Awkward Throwback Thursday

Despite having a most unnecessarily long awkward stage, I also had a lot of great (though not-so-photogenic) times. I am very fortunate to call my family my family. And also fortunate that they have good hearts and didn’t shun me and my unibrow.

selfie
That (more than one) time I unabashedly took selfies like this and saved them on my family computer for all to see…
house
That time I had my 13th birthday party at the National Building Museum where all my friends and I built a house because hello, that’s still awesome…
