Ringing in the New Year

Tonight is New Years Eve. *Insert random sappy New Years Eve music now* Time to contemplate New Years Resolutions... To look back and reflect on the good and bad of the year... To look forward to new changes and experiences in the New Year to come and to leave the old behind and embrace the new full on.

That's what I'm doing. This is my new blog, full of all my favorite things, my ramblings, my photos. And maybe a pinch or two of pixie dust for good measure.

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I'm 31 years young. I'm a Cancer. I'm a mother of two wonderful children, and a wife to a husband that always keeps me on my toes. I am a portrait photographer and a curator at a local science museum. In my spare time I love to read, embroider, cook, and I have an obsession- most call it an unhealthy one- nail polish.

I love nail polish. I think it stems from my 8th grade year. Despondent and angst-ridden, I asked my favorite teacher Mr. B what guys look for in a girl. He told me the first thing he noticed on his wife was her nails. They were perfectly manicured and polished. To me, ever since then, I've never been fully dressed without polish. Granted, it's only been in the last year or so that my nail polish obsession has reached somewhat epic proportions- about 350 polishes. I'll have a better count tomorrow when I go through my "Stash". But I rest easy in knowing that even though my polish stash may be large- it's not as big as some peoples. *g*

Tonight I'll have a few posts of just random crap. Then sometime in the near future I'll have my first polish review in my new blog. I cannot wait!

Thanks so much for ringing in the New Year with me!
