A day in the sun...
Tuesday, June 02, 2009
Ok, so generally speaking the sun is not my friend. I am so pale I tend to reflect instead of soak it up. I really haven't tried to even get in sun in years. Well Sunday I and two of my friends headed out to a private creek to cool off on the hottest day of the year so far in Alabama. We packed a lunch, gathered up some towels, and headed out. I started not to go with them. It has been years since I even wore shorts much less a bathing suit. But I have to say my love of the water and being outdoors finally won over the thought of exposing too much skin.
We had so much fun. We put our lawn chairs in the creek and dipped our hands in its still cool water while the hot sun beat down on us. We fought dragon flys, sharp rocks and 1 pair of lost flip flops.(Sorry Brooke)I can't remember the last time I had so much fun. Just us girls talking and laughing. Maybe even gossiping a little. I never even gave one thought to my body or what it looked like. I just drank in good friends and the perfect peace of nature. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I'm so glad I didn't let my insecurity stand in my way of one of the best times I've had in years.
