Whenever I do a themed picture post, I inevitably always get the “BUT YOU MISSED…” comments. Which, of course, I did. There is no way for me to include every single photo when I curate my compilations. But sometimes when the source material is so good, the sheer quantity so massive, you are forced to go back to the well for another heaping helping. But today, instead of just the joy of women celebrating together, we celebrate the job of women kissing together. Because going for the gold wouldn’t be complete without victorious sweet lady kisses. Smooch on, world.
