To young Kaydee,
I am writing to you at the ripe old age of 24 (almost 25, our favourite number).
There are some things I want to tell you about how the next few years are going to play out. No need to worry, because spoiler: our life is incredible.
I wake up every morning looking around our apartment - some days, in disbelief of the life we've created for ourselves.
When you grow up, you'll turn the curiosity for makeup you found as a tomboy looking for a way to express yourself through your artistic lens into a career. It's pretty cool how you've taken your skills off the canvas and turned it into a job.
