Can you tell this man is wearing braces in these headshots? Wait before you wonder where I'm going with this -- indulge me here because sometimes I'm teaching and sometimes I'm just talking -- and today... it's the latter. This post is just about having a little bit of fun. :D Swear to you that even with my huge paparazzi camera lens on him I couldn't tell either. Since I was the girl that wore the standard issue silver braces as a teenager (and frankly, kind of need them again as a grown-up) I was floored to see that they are literally invisible on Ryan here. Yes I've heard of Invisalign and for any of you that are eye-rolling with how late I am to the party -- fair enough (heehee) but it took seeing with my own eyes to really be a believer. (I even posted one of him NOT smiling to show that even with his mouth closed there was no wonky-ness ...and yes, I just likely made up that word too) Shout out to Orthodontist Dr. Egger for introducing us to Ryan...he's so cute and an excellent way to begin a post holiday week!
