Not sure how the flower is related to this.

I guess her cheeks weren't rosy pink?

Did you know Bryan and Dezzy go clothes shopping together? I guess you did.

Did she have the power to make flowers bloom?

Adam said...

not exactly, I couldn't find a good picture of her for the post. Maia doesn't exactly have garments that cover herself very well.

Adam said...
