September 2016

Is It Fall Yet??

Well look at that! I seemed to have taken a Summer break from blogging! That was not my intention at all, it just happens. Life just happens ya know? I know that technically, it's still Summer but we all know that once we flip the calendar to September 1st, our mind is on Pumpkin Spice everything, leaves changing colors, cooler weather, scarves, boots, back to school and Halloween.  

Did you have a nice Summer?

My Summer was up and down as you can see from my last post.  I was incredibly sad when I wrote my last post. Certain things in my life were kind of freaking me the fuck out a little.   I seem to have overcome the things that were concerning me and I have moved on and August was a much better month than July, like I hit the reset button on my emotions.

The highlight of my Summer was a visit to Gunnison Beach in Sandy Hook, NJ, it's the largest "clothing-optional" beach in the East Coast. Me and Mike went for our 15 year anniversary and it was so much fun! We had great weather, a really nice ferry ride from midtown Manhattan, and just an overall really cool experience.

I haven't been to a beach in years, and I'm usually so self-conscious about wearing bathing suits, so I can't explain why I was totally okay getting naked in front of a bunch of strangers. Maybe because Mike was there, maybe because I was surrounded all types of unique people who were totally comfortable being naked in front me.  At the end of the day, I couldn't stop thinking about how fun it was and how good it felt. We totally plan on making multiple trips next year.  This visit has changed the way I look at myself, for the better, and I couldn't be happier about it, my body is sexy!

But I am welcoming the cooler weather and for my new tattoo to heal, I hate waiting for tattoos to heal.
