  • We are at 30,000 feet flying on Frontier Airlines when my 11 year old daughter leans over and says, "You have freckles EVERYWHERE; even your eye."

    Indeed. If you connected all my freckles with a purple Sharpie I would be a giant grape. It would take 50 Sharpies and if you stretched the line out that's connecting all the freckles it could circle the Earth 4 times.

    Her statement motivated us to spend 3 hours taking 185 photos of my eye and my tiny heart shaped freckle. Only one turned out decent and you are looking at it. I never studied my eye up close and we were surprised to see so many different colors and designs on the iris.

    Here's looking at you!
