I am grateful for the relaxing day I had. As I have mentioned before, in non-Israel areas, Passover is celebrated for an extra day to ensure that the same tie frame is being observed. However, my dad is Israeli so he grew up not celebrating this eighth day of Passover. Therefore, in order to respect both of my parents traditions, I do not work on this eighth day but it is a little more chill than yesterday. So, I got to sleep in and just spend the entire day relaxing! (and even enjoying my last chametz-free meals). (Chametz are the foods that we cannot eat on Passover because they have been leavened or have certain grains and products in them).
Yesterday, I was grateful that in the afternoon, I got to just sit around in my pajama’s and read a TON. It was very relaxing and put my mind nicely at ease.
Nail Time! These are really simple and majorly easy nails that pack a punch and look really super classy.
After cleaning, filing, and applying a base coat, I put two coats of each base color (white, turquoise, light and dark purple). Then, I used a small tracer to make random sloping pairs of lines. Finish with your favorite top coat and then remember to show me your color combos or ask questions on Facebook, Instagram or Tumblr!
I am grateful to have a full driveway. My family has 3 cars so when we have 3 cars in the driveway at once, it means we’ve got all 6 people at home at once. I am glad that my oldest brother came home from Rochester, New York (where he is getting his doctorate from Eastman School of Music) to celebrate the end of Passover with us.
I am grateful for the two fun sets of nails I got to do today. I had fun doing a nice simple flower pattern in white on a ballet-shoe pink base. And I also did black organic shapes outlined in blood red on a white base. Both designs are really nice and I think I did a high quality job on them. I will show you pictures soon!
Sorry that I haven’t posted a picture with a 365 Grateful lately! Hopefully I will soon.
Also, make sure to check out my brand spanking new instagram! It will be only my photography and nail art (I think). The link is in the right side bar!
I am grateful for the good day I had. I got a 100% of the Hebrew test I got back today. I have been trying to get a 100% all year and I finally did! Plus, I found out that I got a scholarship that I applied for which is all based on community service. In case you guys haven’t noticed, I am kind of obsessed with community service/volunteering and it is such an honor for me to hear that other people see how much I care about service and how highly I prioritize my service. Also, because I got the scholarship, my mom insisted that I call my grandparents and of course it was really nice to talk to them! Plus, I had a final lab test for biology (which doesn’t sound fun) but it is good because that is the last big thing I had before my two exams. I only have one day of actually class left and then I have over a week to study for my exams and then it is SUMMER!
I am grateful to have reached 70 followers! I have had a very slowly, but somewhat steady, growth in following, liking, and reblogging for which I am very thankful. I hope that my blog continues to pick up more and more speed.
