Painting My Nails

I love nights in. Cozying in bed with a glass of wine, a new tv show, a bottle of nail polish. One episode of Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, even the Sopranos is exactly the right amount of time to paint your nails. I have a system down. I clip my cuticles, I file, I paint a base, the color, a top. I let them dry.

Taking the time for myself leaves me feeling fresh and happy, it is these moments that make me love being alone. My mind starts to work at these times, this is often when I write.  This is often when I feel most content, with myself, with my work, with my life.
