Pretty Love

The photos on The Cherry Blossom Girl's blog are always so stunning.  This pairing of photos was especially inspiring to me because it reminded me of the nail polish project I am doing, painting my nails every week to create a visual remind that I am taking care of myself.  You can read about it here and join in if you'd like!
I am headed out to my counseling session right now and just wanted to remind you that if you need something each week to remind you to take care of yourself, paint your nails!  For me, seeing a flash of color on my nails as I work, as I eat, as I wash my face, at any point of the day, it reminds me that I should invest in myself and take care of myself.  I've had quite a few lovely ladies send me photos of their painted nails this past week and I've been working on a little collage of all of the ladies dedicating themselves to loving themselves.  Send me photos of your painted nails if you would like to participate in the project!  I hope the photos above give you a little inspiration.  They are just so pretty!  I seek to feel as light and lovely as the photos, not in trying to make myself look better, but in seeking to simply feel a lightness in me and a glow of joy from my eyes to my finger tips :)

I'll post some pictures of my newly painted nails later today!  Guess what color I'm wearing.  It is soothing, cooling, and fresh feeling.

Oh, lovely!! :) I'm feeling your nail polish project, too. There's something so sweet about taking a little bit of time to focus on *you*! Gonna do it, today. :)

That color is really gorgeous. I'm looking at my bronze nails and grumbling, "Why aren't you bright and pink???" But then they catch the light and get all shiny, and I'm OK again. (I swear, my attention span is longer than a goldfish's. Really.)

I'm currently so lacking in the taking care of yourself department. I blame school work! I can't wait to see your own nail project.
