This time last year, Errica convinced me to put on shorts.
We were on vacation in downtown San Diego Fourth of July weekend and it was insanely hot outside; there was a pool at the resort we were staying at and we were going to go lay by the pool. Instinctively, I pulled on my favorite white washed jeans over my bikini and said okay let’s go. She turned to me and said, it’s hot outside you should put on some shorts I brought extra for the both of us and that’s when I hesitated. I hadn’t worn shorts outside of the comfort of my home since my freshman year of high school. She could tell that the idea made me uncomfortable so she said put these on and I’ll take a couple of pictures of you to show you how beautiful you look in shorts.
Errica was the first person to say that to me. She was the first person to not just tell me that I was beautiful, but the first person to make me feel like I am beautiful. And she still does. Every. Single. Day.
I am so incredibly lucky to have a partner who inspires me to feel confident and believe in myself. Whenever I feel insecure about something I am wearing or a problem I am facing in life she is there to tell me that the outfit I’m wearing is adorable and that everything is going to be okay.
I am so incredibly lucky that my partner tells and shows me everyday that she loves me by having my coffee ready when I wake up and having bubble baths drawn after a long day.
I am so incredibly lucky to call you my girlfriend, partner, significant other womancrushwednesday, my love, my sunshine my only sunshine. Thank you for all that you do to show me you care and for helping me be the confident, strong, independent woman that I am today.
She did get me out of the hotel room in shorts that day. And since then, she’s convinced me to wear dresses too. 😉
