I am thankful for recovery days… and I’m having a lot of those lately because the sexy beast headed up to Yellowstone almost 10 days ahead of me.

But the recovery I’m thankful for today is much more specific: the massive bruise I sustained almost three weeks ago has disappeared, just in time for a bikini photo shoot. (More on that later; I’m sworn to secrecy for now.)

On some level, I’m truly thankful for how horrible the bruise was. Whatever impact my soft tissue sustained in the fall was impact my hip and head DIDN’T have to take.

So my brain’s probably back to normal too…
