I love summer!!! In my opinion I have a Sun Kissed Goddess Tan; however this past weekend, while at a family party, I was told that I was too tan. I know, the nerve!! Do these family/friend Chica's not know that a great tan takes many hours of dedication and patience?!?
I am a Latina woman with naturally tanned skin, which pales out in the winter months. I use to avoid the sun at all cost, up until a few years ago, when I found much relaxation and fun basking in the sun! My mother who is fabulously gorgeous with a perfectly proportioned body(which I did not inherit), gave me a complex about being in the sun, while I was growing up.
I have light angel kisses(freckles) on my cheeks, that multiply and slightly darken when I am in the sun. My mom use to say "stay out of the sun or your freckles will multiply and connect". She would also say that she knew someone this happened to. Which in all reality had nothing to do with the freckles, but a skin disorder that caused brown blotches. Oh, my mother and her kookey ways...
I am by no means George Hamilton tanned, but I am fiercely tanned and refuse to let the statement that I am too tanned, keep me out of the sun!! Living in Midwest has it's perks...I love it here; however summer is so short lived. In just a few weeks the pools and beaches will close, the temperatures will drop, seasons will change and there will be no more frolicking in the sun!
So I am going to whoop it up while I can and enjoy these Fabulous Summer Days!!!
