I joked on Facebook that I was hoping to take some outfit photos while on our little rural Missouri vacation but that it was going to be 90+ degrees so swimsuit pictures would have to do. Turns out that my husband insisted that I actually take some swimsuit photos and post them.
We rented a cabin via VRBO.com just outside Steelville, MO from Saturday to Tuesday ostensibly so Jason could photograph the solar eclipse, but, honestly, I just enjoyed hanging out on the property, reading and exploring.
The cabin is dog-friendly so Chewie got to come, too. He loves water so he made a beeline for the pond every time we got anywhere near it. He also enjoyed snuffling around in the woods and running laps around the cabin itself.
As for me, I discovered that somehow, between my trip to California in June and this trip this swimsuit top no longer really fits. I think I’m going to blame all the strength training for giving me a broader back and more developed shoulders than I used to have. Yes, that’s it.
P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, I did not do any touch-up work on any of these photos. No photoshop, no editing, no nothing. I *may* be flexing in a few of them (such as it is, anyway) but I didn’t use any software tools on any of the pictures, including this one below of the solar eclipse at full totality. Kudos for my husband for the great photo!
