In our three years living in Dublin, Ohio, I have been surprised over and over again at what a close community this is. Everyone seems connected in one way or another. And I’m grateful for that, since most people find their way to me through personal connections. Kinkead and I might have found each other the same way, but it turns out our connection goes way back and stems from another Ohio town–Mansfield–where her mama and I grew up! Somehow, after many years away, both of our families landed here in Dublin!
It has been a wonderful treat getting to know Kinkead and reconnect with her family these past few months. And in this session in particular, I loved seeing little glimpses familiar expressions and features I recognize from her extended family members. It was like a walk down memory lane for a few moments! Kinkead, you are beautiful inside and out, and I’m thankful for the chance to get to know you this year and for your help as an ABP senior model as well. Best wishes for a marvelous senior year!
