500th Post (and Sprout Mani)

Good afternoon, dear readers! :D

Today marks the date of my 500th post on my blog!!!  I am so thrilled! :D  This has been an incredible journey and I couldn't have continued it without all of you.  I appreciate every one of you so much!  You have added a richness to my life, and for that I am forever grateful. :D

When I first started my blog, I never knew that I could and would get into contact with so many wonderful people across the globe.  I had a specific view of the world around me and the people in it, and I am not kidding when I say that you have really increased my affection for humanity.  With so many news stories focusing on the bad in life, it is easy to get into a funk and feel that there is so much lacking in this world.  While there still are so many problems with society, I have come to know a lot of exceptionally lovely people, and my hope for this planet has grown because of that. :}

I have met and come to know so many wonderful people, who are understanding and kind, and have gone through so many things yet still stick together and do what they can to lift each other up.

I have shared news of losses and gains, engagements and pregnancies, trials and accomplishments, and have been blessed to be a part of your lives, in even the smallest way.

Thank you.

Thank you so much!!!!!


Now for my manicure of the day:


I wanted something for spring, so I painted this design over O.P.I Thanks a Windmillion :D  I think this greyed out sage colour is perfect for spring!

Have an amazing day!!
