Perfect Summer Day

I do so love manicures...

I have nothing to hide..just me, on a perfect summer day.

Hey everybody! It's finally almost summer, and it is just gorgeous down here in Florida, warm, with clear bright blue skies, and, in our case, an amazing pool to jump into when it gets too hot!
So all in all, life's pretty dandy in my little corner of the earth, the biggest thing that's happened to me lately is my karate test...which I will, of course, describe to you.
I was testing for my brown belt test, and I was pretty nervous, I was worried i was going to forget my techniques in the middle of the test or something. What turned out to be the worst was the length of the test. It was two and a half hours and hard labor, and I'm not going to lie to you, it was incredibly hard and painful. I never have been a person that has alot of endurance, I'm a sprinter rather than a marathoner, if you catch my drift. It was really, really hard, especially the sparring at the end. It wasn't that it was so difficult, but I was just so exhausted and drained that every movement was an effort. What really touched me throughout the sparring was my family cheering me on. Even my brother, who usually isn't very demonstrative, was encouraging me and cheering me on, and that, along with my instructor, helped me get through it.
It was really hard, but I'm really glad I did it. I gave it my all, and I'm proud of that.

Also, on a lighter note, I went shopping at Kohl's today and got some amazing deals on some adorable shirts...I'll have an outfit post if you guys want :) It's just been an amazing past few weeks, and I can't wait for summer to start--how about you guys?
Love and butterfly kisses,
