Let's talk for just a minute about how I rocked a bikini yesterday six months post-partum. As I packed my bags for the beach I was a little hesitant...but instead of dwelling on all my many imperfections, I decided to have fun and not think about it. I never once worried about the extra rolls that formed as I bent over to change a diaper or swing Eleanor in the air. I didn't even blink an eye when the cameras were being snapped. Instead, I walked away from our day on the beach with confidence and joy in my little family. Life is too short. I know that it is easier said than done. But I did it. And I feel proud. (It doesn't hurt that everyone is really staring at the cute baby in the photos and not the way my swim suit is hugging my curves.)
Our mini beach trip was so much fun. I have a ton more photos to share soon! Until then, I'm off to enjoy another day on the sand!
