So this weekend, I'm taking the plunge and wearing a bikini on the beach. IN PUBLIC.
OMG OMG OMG.
I am terrified, but at the same time, I'm kind of excited. It's really cute! I'm also kind of excited about the fact that when I was choosing the bottoms, I was deliberating between a medium and a SMALL! I have never been a small on the bottom.
I came to a realization that I am not going to be the only person on the beach wearing a bathing suit who didn't have a perfect body. People aren't even going to be looking at me to find imperfections-- they are probably all just as nervous! And if they are looking that close, in the words of my sweet grandmother, "they deserve what they see."
