Hyacinth is ready for summer.

I’m German, Irish, and English.  Read: white.  I gestated my baby for 42 weeks because my ancestors were from the arctic north, I have light eyes and hair, and a Scandinavian look (or so I’ve been told), I tan eventually, but will most likely burn first.  Therefore, there’s nothing I hate more than the heat.  The fucking goddamned h e a t.  Bleh.

I grew up in a temperate climate where it snowed once every 7 years or so, but the seasons were at least delineated by distinct temperatures.  Where I live now, however, summers last 8 months and the winter is over before I even get the chance to wear all my sweaters.  I long for grey skies and rosy cheeks.  But, whining is for weaklings and so I go hard and fast into summers here.

I’m not afraid to don a bikini and let it all hang out.  I don’t care that I’m not a hard-body (I like my soft-body); I don’t care that I am not perfect (I find beauty in my imperfections); and I don’t care that no one has Instagram-glasses and sees me as I really am (I’ll use the shit outta that app here).  I adore the water and I adore my body.  I guess it’s the one thing I can enjoy out of these blistering summers.

I hope you enjoy my enjoyment.



I wish I really looked like this.

A face should be where my hand is, don’t you think??

Mind the bow.

  1. Very lovely post to wake up to. I really enjoy your enjoyment. I think I’d like another helping. Maybe It will keep us all happier


  2. I WISH I HAD THAT BODY!!!!! You are gorgeous and I say being 53 SUCKS! Thank god for yoga to keep me a viable source of fun, LOL

  3. Looks good enough to eat. I’m going to have to disagree with you on the heat. I love it! Then again, ethnically and skin tone wise we are complete opposites.

    • Thanks, Mr. M! I swear ancestry has something to do with it ;) Though I’m sure there are plenty of pasty white folks out there who love the heat. I’m just not one of them!

  4. Oh my, you and I clearly need to swap locations as I HATE the winter and cold and grey damp skies and yet we seem to spend most of our time with that weather and the summer is gone in flash before I have worn all my summer dresses. Yep, we definitely need to swap.


  5. Adorable photos, I especially love the last one. I have to agree with Molly, I absolutely love the heat! Luckily I get lots of it in Texas :)
