Pedicures and S’mores

Sometimes, it can be fun to focus on the shallow. The silly. The superficial.

I haven’t done that in a while.

I saw the prettiest manicure on Pinterest a while ago. I wanted to try it, except with my lifestyle I knew this mint glitter combo would chip and become a mess within an hour.

So I decided to turn it darker and put it on my toes, which don’t get as beat up by wear and tear. I actually went out and got a pedicure (I KNOW!) and asked for a kelly green, punctuated by emerald green sparkles. OPI provided both.

And now, every time I look at my feet I smile. And feel a secret happiness born of non-intellectual rigor and pure old-fashioned self-love.

We also made S’mores tonight.

And I got a report that the moles I had removed were benign. Today, I am reminded how lucky I really am. I am so thankful.

Summer is here.

    I got my nails done yesterday as well! Winter plum chutney. All day I have padded barefoot on the cold floors just so I can look at them. Love your happy post 🙂

  3. That’s great news! It’s only appropriate to celebrate with schmores and pedicures. Life is sweet.

  4. Pretty toes! So happy about the mole report. It’s a reminder for me to call and make my mole-check appointment.
