we can't all look this good in a swimsuit...


i stole this little gem off the sisters' blog and couldn't help but admire the sweet figure i liked to show off in my younger years. i hit the big 2-6 today and was overwhelmed by the lovely birthday wishes and am so thankful for the wonderful family and friends that i am so incredibly lucky to have. those were the days...wrinkle free and not terrified of the camera. i can't say that it is the same today. still, as i am now closer to 30 than i am to 20, i can only hope the next 26 years of my life are as great as the first. 

and yes carlee, i'm wearing a sweatshirt over my swimsuit. some things never change.
xo.

Oh little lovely Laura, who knew you were even lovelier as a little girl! I think you and your sweatshirt are adorable! If only we could all pull that look off....
maybe then our husbands wouldn't have such wondering eyes at the beach.

I hope you got my message on your voice mail. I can't believe I spaced calling you on your birthday. I feel totally horrible and I am such a bad friend! Hopefully you can forgive me!
Love ya,
