My mom has of photograph of herself in a bikini in the 1960s, standing in front a picnic table on a bright day. It was one of those 'full coverage' bikinis, with ruffles. When I think of summer, I see that picture in my head. The ruffle bikini and huge honking sunglasses (don't worry Mom, I don't have the picture, so I can't post it) and a big smile on her face. 48.5 hours until our first beach vacation of the year. Man, there is nothing like summer.
This one is for you Momsy!
