I declared the month of June, “Love Your Thighs Month” after a near meltdown in a dressing room earlier this year. I pledged to love the thighs I have for all that they do for me and to not speak, write or think negative comments about them. Surprisingly, I didn’t find it that difficult of a commitment to keep. Me and my thighs danced a few times a week for exercise and walked through (what felt like) 8 billion apartment buildings. We stood for hours and made thousands of cups of coffee. We ate and shopped and even stared face-to-thigh in a few dressing rooms but instead of shame or sadness about the dimples and rolls of my thighs I felt proud.
To celebrate, Bot and I spent a wonderful day wandering around Charlottesville because he grew up there and I’ve grown to love the city so much. Also they have a Mellow Mushroom, which makes my favorite pizza of all time, the Kosmic Karma. It’s seriously delicious and covered in sun dried tomatoes and pesto. I got addicted to them when we lived in Atlanta and there was a Mellow Mushroom right next to our apartment complex.
I meant to take an outfit photo, because I wore shorts in honor of the culmination of “Love Your Thighs Month” but we got caught in the flash thunderstorms. I was totally soaked through before we got a chance to take photos. Instead I leave you with a picture from today.
I spent today hanging around the house catching up on blogs and went to see the last Harry Potter movie with my brother. It was a day of relaxing well spent.
