You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile...Even With Braces

Annie is one of my favorite musicals. So much so that when getting dressed in the morning, the lyrics of one of the songs pops into my head and creeps out of my mouth as I begin to hum and then sing "who cares what you're's what you wear from ear to ear, and not from head to toe, that matters" ....more
