Full (and not so pleasant) disclosure: Depression is a BITCH. I’m used to my regular level of depression. It makes life tough, but not impossible. The past few weeks, I’ve noticed that my depression has seriously deepened. To the point where I don’t want to get out of bed at all, don’t want to get dressed….. don’t want to do anything but hide from the world. Luckily, I have an amazing support system. On Tuesday, my mom suggested that I make a special effort to look nice. Not for anyone else, but for ME. So I did it. Today, we had our last session of pre-marital counseling with the priest who’s performing our wedding, and I went all out. Brushed and straightened my hair (it’s getting so long!!), put on real make up and lipstick, and wore a dress I love. To celebrate the occasion, I took a picture!

My brain told my face to smile, but apparently it didn’t listen.

In addition to growing out my hair for the wedding, I’m growing out my nails. I’m a terrible nail biter, but I want to have a pretty mani for the wedding. They’ve finally starting looking good, so  I got a manicure to help motivate me to keep them up. True story: I never wear light colors on my nails. If they are painted, they are always dark. This color and Vamp by Chanel are my go-to colors.

Feeling bad sucks, but I know I’ll get through it. Plus, I have something to look forward to! This weekend, I’ll be at the Texas Style Council Camp and I am so excited! Normally camping is on the no-can-do list, but this is more like glamping- cabin, AC, bed, etc. I’m looking forward to a weekend with my fellow bloggers and sharing stories. I never went to any type of sleepaway camp so I can’t wait to get to try it out!

How’s your week? How are you feeling? How do you like my longer hair?
