Short list

Another mom who's blog I follow recently posted about finding things to love about our postpartum selves. I thought I should give that a try.
*Freckles. I'll steal that one from her. I also adore mine, though I once feared that they would take over my face.
*Collarbone. Even when I'm heavier than I want to be, my collarbone is always there looking regal.
*Fingernails. Mine have always grown quickly and looked pretty.
*Knees. I marvel at how all the childhood scars have faded and left nice looking knees. Even if they crack/pop all the time and hurt.
*Calves/ankles. They've always looked longer, thinner and more muscular than it would seem I worked for. They're good to me.

Really, the only thing that's missing from this list that would've been there five years ago is my butt. And my husband might make a good argument for it still making the list LOL The list of little things that bother me now is just much longer. I do a good job of ignoring those things though, most of the time.
