Triple tall almond milk latte.

Despite all of the pink and neutral tones displayed throughout my theme – purple is actually my favorite color.
Play any sports growing up?
I started dancing at 3-years-old then went on a year hiatus at 16 when I had my first leg lengthening. After that, I danced for another year before retiring. Unless it ends up being your life-long career you retire from it at a pretty young age. Today, I make up for it by taking Pure Barre classes 🙂
