Melanoma Monday

melanoma monday 2

Today is MELANOMA MONDAY, e.g. the yearly designated day by the American Academy of Dermatology to raise awareness for skin cancer and to encourage early detection through self-examination.  I’m kinda preachy when it comes to sun protection (#SorryImNotSorry) but, let me explain. Obviously I’m someone who has always HAD to wear sunscreen, due to the fact that my skin resembles a wedding dress, so I’ve never really had a choice to NOT wear SPF…but here’ the thing, I’m posting a photo of myself IN A BIKINI…ON THE INTERNET…so you have to read this whole post. Ok? (nod your head yes)
