This was the portion of the year when things definitely started to look up.
The first weekend in April was one of the best weekends of my life, not just the year. I will not forget it. The month did hold a bit of a down note, as one of the most important members of my group of friends left for the Air Force in the middle of the month. It would be 8 months until I saw him again, and who knows after that. But the weather continued to clear up (despite a snow storm on April Fools Day) and everything really began to bloom.
May is usually one of my favorite months. It might be because of my birthday (and this was a nice one, spent with my family and Brad, eating my favorite Mexican food and gambling at the casino), but I think I’ve always related it to change. When I was still in school, things would be winding down, preparing everyone for summer. It’s a happy month overall, with sunshine and warmth dominating the weather forecast. I also discovered Sally Hansen Nail Polish strips, which revived my love for nail polish, something very special to my daily/weekly life now.
P.S. I finally cut my hair. I am better with shorter hair. And it just kept getting shorter.
Now things get good. So many days spent by the pool, drinking summer-y cocktails and ales.
Long and lazy summer days, even if I did have to spend a lot of them at work.
In other news, my awesome sister graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia and we had an amazing meal to celebrate, I rediscovered my love for reading in a big way, and my sister did an awesome job with one of my outfit posts (which have become a more regular establishment on the blog over the year, and also the photos were taken in June but posted in July).
