    Kaeleigh K - Childhood was the best, it’s hard to beat limited responsibilities, summers off, riding bikes for hours, and playing outside till the sun went down. My favorite part of childhood has to be my best friend, we became best friends in 2nd grade and now we’re both 22, live 1000 miles apart, and I have a daughter now, but I know I could call her up or text her and she’d be there for me. Nothing better than that!ReplyCancel

    Gina Hiskes - My grandparents lived on a lake and we each got to spend a week with them during the summer. It was definitely the best days of my life. My Oma would cook an amazing breakfast and we’d spend the day swimming or tubing behind the boat.

I’d come home exhausted and tan, but feeling so loved.ReplyCancel
