Clothing Necessities for a Beach Vacation

During the winter, there are few things I would rather do than go on a beach vacation! I have several friends who have been doing just that and it has given me serious wanderlust. Soon, I’ll be planning a trip that will involve the beach and I’m getting really excited about it! As much as I love spending time on the banks of the lakes nearby, there is nothing like soaking in the hot sun while enjoying the ocean waves.

Summer Swim Essentials

I know that most of you probably don’t know me personally, but I will let you in on a little secret that most people who do know me personally know… I LOVE water parks! I have never lived close to a water park, so going to a water park was always a special event for me. I love to swim, I love to float around in the lazy rivers, and to go down water slides. To me, water parks represent everything that summer should be! In our area, we have a pretty sweet YMCA that has a nice indoor swimming facility with a small lazy river and one water slide. It seems silly, but I am so excited to have that nearby!

I love finding new swimwear each year. I grew up absolutely hating swimming suit shopping. It is sad that I felt that way from such a young age. All of my insecurities would come when I would try on bathing suits. The older I have gotten, the more I have realized that being insecure in a swimming suit should be the least of my worries. I remember going to a water park when I was in high school and seeing a mom there who was pretty overweight, but it didn’t keep her from flaunting her body in a bathing suit and playing with her kids. I don’t think that anyone there would have judged her for the way she was shaped in that moment. I was so impressed with her confidence and her willingness to get in and play! I wanted to be just like that when I became a mom.

I have learned a lot about my body over the years. I have learned what types of suits fit me well and make me feel confident while I am in them. I have always loved Lime Ricki swimwear! I own three of their suits and I added another one to my bathing suit collection this year!
