I'm Thankful For..
Today's challenge is "I'm Thankful For" Thanksgiving nails! I needed a base polish that just reminds me of the season, so I picked this unusual matte brown glitter polish from SpaRitual with an even more unusual name - Starry Night. You would think that would be a black or blue polish, not brown. It's super pretty, though, and dries down to a matte finish.
I didn't want to do traditional turkey stamping today, so I thought about what I'm really thankful for, and top of my list is the love of my husband. We met online in what constituted social media in the early 90's, but we started falling in love when he sent me some mix tapes, and a lot of handwritten letters.
So when I saw this stamp on Cici & Sisi 11, I thought it had a lot of the elements that made me think of those early days of our relationship - hearts, envelopes, and music notes!
It should have some $$ too, though, because back in the day, making a long-distance phone call cost a lot of money, and my monthly phone bills would be in the $300 range. In the 90's. Turns out it was a good investment, though, since we've been married 19 years. He doesn't write me letters anymore, but he still finds me music that he thinks I'll like.
I'm thankful also, if you read this far! What are you thankful for this year?
