A little while back, Roxy Mae looked at her mom with a sad face and said, “But I’m not a real princess. I’m a pretend princess.” She felt defeated.

Well, I have good news for you, little Roxy Mae. Pretend princesses are the best and happiest princesses out there. Kingdoms fall and the riches wear thin, but that simply isn’t so in the magical world of make believe.

Plus, real princesses don’t have unicorns.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  42. laura says: February 1, 20109:46 pm

    I have a niece. she's 1 year and 8 months old.
    my sister goes to college in another town and it was summer vacation here in brasil, so my sister and my niece (Maria Eduarda) were here, during vacations.
    now that my sister already went back to her city we all miss them a lot. and everytime I see the pictures of your niece I keep imagining how my niece is going to look like when she's older.
    she's already the cutes thing ever. She likes to steal our lipsticks and try to them on her.
    I know this has nothing to do with nothing, but seeing pictures of roxy mae really made me smile #fact and reminded me of her.

  43. Keiko Lynn says: February 2, 20105:34 am

    I really feel for you; it's so difficult to be far away from your loved ones, especially kids. They grow up so quickly. I was looking at pictures of Roxy from when I first moved up here and she was so little. I try to go home as much as possible so I can see all of the kids. I hate missing out on them growing up…
