Popular TikTok personality Elyse Myers commented, “Me just watching this after hearing your recent podcasts about past lives like THAT WOMAN IS ON A MISSION.”

Kaitlyn replied, “YES SHE IS and her voice will be heard!!!”

Another commenter wrote, “I’m sure teenage KB never thought she’d be sipping her wine table outside Target and taking over the world. These pics are too good.”

Kaitlyn shared what her younger self might have thought, writing, “she thought she would be sipping Boone’s farm strawberry hill forever.”
