Carley is by first senior for 2018. She was here on vacation this July with her family, from Iowa. We only spoke on the phone, and texted some before meeting the first time. But, from her vision for her session and all the ideas she had, I can tell she is a very special and unique gal. The colorful murals in St. Pete and raw beauty of Pass-A-Grille illustrates her perfectly.

  1. Place your muffin tin in the freezer.
  2. Begin to melt your chips, stirring occasionally.
