Does it fit?

A couple years ago, I threw out all my tiny, revealing underwear.

I realize this is too much information.

It wasn't that it didn't really fit, just that it no longer fit my lifestyle. I was no longer the tiny, sexy underwear girl. I was more the practical, cover my entire hiney Fruit of the Loom type of lady.

My life is like my underwear.

It isn't about what fits...I can fit myself into many, many things given the proper modes of support. But if it rides up in certain areas, if it makes me all squirrley and uncomfortable, it's not worth it....no matter how cute the pink lace is. My life now is about what's comfortable, whats makes me feel good, what makes me feel covered and supported.

After Samantha, I worried if my relationships based on Samantha would still be comfortable; would they still make me feel covered and supported? Even if the basis for the relationship was no longer there? Would I be uncomfortable? Would I try to fit into something that was no longer me?

Here I am with the Supermoms, after Samantha. It fits, it still feels good, the coverage and support is fabulous.

I am so very relieved :)







These pictures were taken during a
Canvas and Cocktails evening fundraiser for our little friend Cici (the sweet little girl in my arms). It was wonderful to fit right in again....being part of the Fruit of the Loom....I think I'm the banana.

I would like to be the grapes...or maybe the apple. Love you! I had so much fun listening to you sing the night away...let's find that karaoke bar...you might actually see me drink for something like that! ;)

The banana - I love it! You are doing well to trust your instincts.

You are the fermented grapes, silly! Alright, banana may be the correct fruit. I am sooo glad we all got to have a night. XO's
