Summertime... and the living is easy. Heather Marks as a beach bunny for July Velvet.











Surfs up and the sun is out, my friends.
I'm off to the beach.
I wish I looked just half as good as Heather Marks does for July's Velvet Magazine.
Oh well, I gotta rock what the Lord hath given me and be thankful.
I know oh so well how going to the beach can be a bit nerve racking.
Let's face it. Most of us have something or somewhere on our bodies we wish would change or not be there. And, summer brings up all these insecurities.
But, what I suggest is love the body that you are in.
No one is perfect, not even the models we see airbrushed away.
What really matters is that we love ourselves. Perfect or not.
And, mostly not. I say "the heck with it" and throw it all into abandon.
We have one life to live. And, we need to it live up, everyday.
I will never look like this model. Well, not at my age.
But, what really matters is the memories that I create with my family
as we make our way through time.
You know, the stuff that REALLY matters.
What do you think?
xo,
Christina
