This little girl is the greatest joy in my life. She is my validation, she is my reason. Being the lead an active role model in her life is humbling and it keeps me on my toes. She teaches me something new about myself often! As long as she’s proud and in love with me, that’s all that matters. I love her so much and it’s an honor to be the guiding light in her life. I’m excited to see the type of young woman she grows up to be. My daughter makes my heart melt; I’m blessed to be her momma bear.

I am remembering the days when I thought of kissing during adolescence. I thought I would never kiss. I thought I would never have someone to kiss. I remember the first time I touched tongues with a girl. We were young, still in grade school, and touching tongues for a split second out of curiosity masked as two player spin the bottle. Figures. We yucked and spat but I truly thought it not disgusting, just warm. That moment was the only to happen, I thought, and no one would ever want to kiss me. Add several years and hormones and that thought changed; experience proved me wrong at seventeen. My first kiss came differently than I imagined. It was less subtle, meaning a lot of tongue, and moist. It was not a soft, masterfully choreographed meeting of mouths as seen in film. It had its own perfection, one of nature and desire, My first kiss was warm and connected.
To the present. My lips have pressed every inch of the human body and my tongue has reached into every crevice. And I mean every. I have kissed more times than I can imagine, then and now. My mouth, my hands, my limbs, my body. They feed love. They crave touch. Give and take. It’s an addiction, an instinct, a need. We will never stop.
MARRIED couple : finally pose for their wedding photos - 88 YEARS later.
Wu Conghan, 101, and his wife Wu Sognshi, 103, married in 1924 and have been together for almost nine decades.
Cameras were almost unknown in China when they got married, but their new keepsakes are something they have dreamed of having ever since.
Their wish came true after a local photo company offered to help the pair from Nanchong, Sichuan province pose for wedding album shots.
The happy couple dressed in full wedding finery for the snaps - with the blushing bride in a full-length gown and veil - before they looked at their mementoes on a laptiop.
The gesture came as part of an initiative in the city that has seen photographers volunteer to help elderly couples obtain wedding photographs they missed originally.
look at them holding hands. loookkkk
AAAAHHHH TOO MUCH ADORABLE
