@mrmajestic723 - We just got back from a trip to Santa Fe for a family reunion. It seemed to me like reaction to Carrie's new braces was minimal to nonexistent, though maybe I missed something and she'll mention it when she responds. Anyway, we had a fun time visiting with family at the very cool resort.

As far as living the dream...it's even better than I'd dared hope. I literally cannot remember a time when I enjoyed life this much. Ticking things off the "braces bucket list" is extremely satisfying. And I expect things will only get better based on a couple of recent conversations with Carrie. For example, even though they haven't been prescribed for her yet, we started playing with her wearing (very light) elastics, which has been REALLY fun.

I'll keep updating Flickr. Thank you for the kind words!

Carrie (or Mike for Carrie) Any thoughts on sparkly or metallic lipstick? I have seen it work on other women to bring extra shimmer around the braces and compliment/highlight them.

Carrie's on a cross-country road trip, so I don't expect she'll post in the next week or so. She'll keep up with the daily Flickr selfies, though. I'd be all for the sparkly/metallic lip gloss. Pretty cool idea!

So I wish a good time for both of you. I haven´t been here for quiet a while and came to this report of Carrie´s adventure in braces. She is for sure a true beauty, because she shows so much inner beauty in addition to the obvious outer beauty.  :) It is very rare in our times that a woman is acting with pure love, so she is maybe the one out of several millions, congratulations, Mike!

There is only one aspect that I am concerned about, the safety aspect. As far as I understood your report, you are both very keen in sporty activities. A long time ago I was standing near a woman in braces, when suddenly during a play a guy gave her with his elbow a heavy punch into her face without intention. I will never forget this, because she was heavily bleeding in her mouth, the lips had been pushed into the braces. This woman was the sister of a friend of mine, so I went to the family quiet often. After all these years I cannot remember how long she was suffering from this injury, but it have been some month for sure. And now comes the point, why I write this message: She was very soon after this had happened wearing a so called mouthguard for both the upper and lower braces. She once told me, that she very much regretted the fact, that she did not have such a protection for her lips when the accident occured. If I remember correct, she even was wearing this mouthguard at home, when she was playing around with a younger brother.

I am sure, that you both will understand, why I am writing this message, it would be such a drama, if anything alike would happen to Carrie. May you please think about this safety aspect and may you, please, excuse all my faults, because I am not a native English speaker.  I wish you a peacefull future for all the rest of Carrie´s treatment and the rest of your lifes.

Greetings from good old Europe!

@anton08 - Thank you for your kind words and your concern for Carrie's safety. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's injury! Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of sports fans here in Arizona are kind, polite, and relatively calm. We've never felt like we were in any danger -- accidental or purposeful -- at the ballpark. I can't really picture Carrie wearing a mouthguard at a baseball game, though I suppose her Comfort Covers might be discreet enough to wear if she ever felt the need.

In any case, since we practice very traditional gender roles in our marriage, it's my responsibility to see that no harm comes to her, whether from stray baseballs or rowdy fans. While I am a very friendly person, as a former Army paratrooper and war veteran with a reasonably muscular physique, I can be fairly intimidating to folks around us in the stands if I want to be. Carrie is also a delightfully friendly woman who makes fast friends wherever she goes, so we don't tend to encounter trouble no matter where we go.
