When Brittany told me this weekend that she A) bought a few bikinis, B) was going to have her picture taken wearing said bikinis, and C) post those pictures on the internet, way too many emotions flowed through my heart.
I love my dear friend, and because I love her, I was immediately D) scared for her, E) proud of her, and F) nervous as all get-out for her.
I didn’t doubt she’d look good; she always looks good. But putting on a bikini, having a photo of herself, then posting it on the internet for all the world to see forever and ever?
That’s what nightmares are made of, no matter what size jeans you wear.
But then she did it.
In the words of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis: “This is f*cking awesome.”
Brittany climbed Bikini Mountain, and she has come out the other side braver than I thought she could ever be.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have boobs like that to fill out a bikini top, amirite?!
Brava, B! You win everything today.
UPDATE: Huffington Post picked up Brittany’s article and has taken it up a notch. BRAVA!
