  1. Thank you, ladies, for doing this. Today’s generation of tweens, teens, and young adults have enough on their plates. Not having to worry about self image, especially girls, gives us an opportunity to concentrate on what is really important. And just a FYI, your website is just as important to us “oldies” aka Senior Citizens! Nice job!
