Wow. It's been a month since I've made a post here. Six weeks since I've updated either of my Instagram accounts. Of everything I do blogging has never come first for me, not even second or third, but this is ridiculous. Could I seriously not post any tiny updates anywhere in a month? (I poke at Twitter, yes, but honestly who sees those? So I'm not counting my tweets.)
I was very depressed in April, and when I'm depressed I don't write, when I don't write I don't update regularly, when I don't update regularly I get depressed about not not blogging, and so on. It's a really lame cycle. In the face of everything that I have going on (studies, family, work, LIFE, etc) I've even considered taking a break from (or quitting) blogging. But to be honest I've done that already in the past. Not actually quitting, but letting my breaks stretch on for seasons at a time. And I didn't much care for it, since I genuinely enjoy writing reviews and documenting my progress as a nail addict. While others my not miss my posts, I sure do miss blogging for me.

I've typed and retyped this post about 10 times now, and I've decided that I'm not going to try to explain exactly what has gone on. But I do want to say that I plan to keep blogging as best as I can, as part of my creative outlet and for my own sanity. After all, I do still paint my nails from time to time!
And because I don't want this to be a lame, sad-news post, here are some nice things that happened in the past month:
- In April: I built that light box finally! No really, I did. It's finished.
- May 4th: Celebrated our 2-year wedding anniversary a day early with a low-key afternoon outing... dinner and a movie!
- May 10th: Freya learned to say "papa" and took off crawling in the same day!
That's about it, though. Hopefully I'll have time to edit some pictures over the weekend and write my usual fare of blog post goodness for next week.
