Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

We always celebrate Thanksgiving at my grandmother's house with my grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, great uncle, and family friends.  I feel so fortunate to have such a great family that comes together every year for Thanksgiving.  This has been our tradition my entire life, and I can remember as a child walking from our house to my grandmother's house with our sweet potato casserole and apple pies.  It had just started snowing and everything felt so magical.  

A few weeks ago, I took the photograph below of my grandmother's garden.  Everything about it reminds me of those childhood walks to Thanksgiving, and the small, wonderful world I lived in that consisted of walks in the woods, awaiting the Charlie Brown Christmas special, and cold-weather holidays with family.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It's My Private Jet

Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk with a Konad design in OPI My Private Jet

I am loving Kendall on the Katwalk more and more.  The purple/blue iridescence is gorgeous! (And I LOVE pink polishes with iridescence).  I think this combination is terrific - and who doesn't love My Private Jet (the name enough is fabulous!).  Sorry for the poor clean up - it looked fine before I photographed it.

What do you think of this design and color combination?

Pretty in Pink

OPI Be A Dahlia, Won't You?

J saw my post about how much I loved this gorgeous sparkly shade, so he surprised me with not one but two bottles of it!  I LOVE it even more now (and I understand why beachgal has multiple bottles of it stashed away!).  I love everything about this one.  I'm so happy to have it!
