De-Braced and Can't Stop Smiling

 Hey everyone, it has been forever. I realize that, and I apologize, but that just goes to prove that after surgery life goes on. The experience only remains in your distant memory. At times though it seems like just yesterday...

I have great news (which may be obvious due to the title) my journey is complete! I have been de-braced! The bars were removed and I was set free 2 days before my Junior prom and I couldn't stop smiling... My teeth felt so free! 

I just got back from a mission trip from Alaska, and I was thrilled to continually smile the entire 3 weeks! My dearest friend Mari was my smily partner on the expedition! 

Life without braces, and a normal jaw is sweet, and honestly I wouldn't even think about it or appreciate my smile if I hadn't of had to go through my jaw journey! 

Does anyone have questions? :) 

I missed you all! I hope you are doing well. 

Love, Makay
