It's Those Little Moments...

1. As she was leaving today, the same little girl who called me last night, looked at me with a big grin and said, "Okay, so I'll call you tonight!"

They are square, reddish-brown, thick-plastic frames, and I got them because they were both trendy and on-sale two years ago at some chain like LensCrafters. When I was actually IN seventh grade, none of the other kids wanted to dress like me....
