We took a little "mini vacation" and headed to the big town of La Grande, Oregon. This is Dr. Hempel's home town- population 15,oo0ish. When we go there, I LOVE to visit a place called Lehman Hot Springs which is an OLD resort that has a large mineral pool. Lehman Hot Springs is nestled into the side of a mountain and when there's snow up there, it's a cozy spot to hang out in. The pools are shallow enough in areas that my two year old can safely walk around and my kids love playing in the warm water with their cousins.
So here I am hanging out with the hottest part of the pool to my back. Yup. That's me, Internet. Wearing a bathing suit. And the best part of this pic? I'm not looking at it & thinking about how huge my arms are. I'm not horrified about the size of my neck nor am I counting my chins. (all of the things I would have done 6 months ago.)
I'm looking at this pic and realizing I need Botox for my crow's feet.
And THAT is what a woman my age SHOULD be thinking about when looking at a picture of herself wearing a swimsuit.
