This is Merida, my niece.
I have never seen her dance in person,
she lives in New Hampshire.
Isn't she sooooo beautiful?
She entered a pageant recently,
Miss Capital Area Outstanding Teen.
(I may not have the title 100% correct -
but she is 100% an outstanding teen!!)
Here she is with her proud parents.
They are absolutely beaming ♥
(my sis, Betty, and her hubby, Scott, the children's musician)
So very proud of you, sweet Merida!!
