Special Birthday Post

We interrupt my usual Monday schedule for a very important announcement...

A few years back, I was introduced to Lenny Lee (link), an eleven year-old boy who liked playing outside, raccoons, and writing, and whose icon was (and is) a happy sunshine. Lenny was dealing with health problems, and his family wasn't sure he'd survive them.

Fast-forward two years, and here we are celebrating--Lenny Lee is officially a teenager! Holy acne, he's thirteen today. And we're all just celebrating and doing the happy dance!


*throws confetti*

And many happy, angsty teen years to come. (Ha ha--just teasing!)

Have a great week-end, reader- and writer-friends~ <3

May Lenny go through his teens acne-free.

Happy birthday, Lenny Lee!

"Holy acne." snort, snort.
Maybe Lenny will be lucky enough to avoid that little treasure of teenhood.

Holy Acne totally cracked me up! I was so jealous of my sister who had (and still has) perfect skin all through those pimple prone years!
