A story of love, beauty, chicken-chasing, daisy chains, cat killing, french singing, dress-wearing, ensuite bathrooms and the day at the pond.
Proud she was in the park that day with her shiny black shoes from a shiny green box. As she peddled through the park she took quick glances down to her feet deciding that cream tights were definitely the right choice; they did accentuate her raven black shoes. She was FREE, BRAVE, BEAUTIFUL, and she was ready to go back to school in a week and a half and show Johnno Boyle O’Connor how free and brave she really was.
