Swimsuit Season!

In years past, I would shudder at the thought of swimsuit season approaching. I was "too pale", "not in shape", blah blah blah. I'm over that mentality! OVER IT. I'm not being paid to model swimsuits, so why should I be expected to look Photoshopped if I go to the beach or pool? Am I… Continue reading Swimsuit Season!
