Every November I get insomnia. I'm not really sure why it happens and it seems like after November is over, things go back to normal. I always attributed it to writing, after all, this pretty much started the year I started doing NaNoWriMo, but this year it hit again and I haven't been doing so great at NaNo. Seriously I started my novel on Monday since I was getting married the first week in November (and I've only written 5000 words...). 
So last night I fell asleep at like 8 PM, and woke up wide awake at 2:30 this morning. 
Does this happen to anyone else? Seasonal insomnia?
After laying awake in bed for awhile I decided that if I was awake I might as well write for a bit, but of course I'm coming up blank when it comes to my story at the moment. 
So what did I do? I went upstairs and sat by the fire, while researching business cards (I may or may not have had a dream that I met Cleverly Coy and wanted to give her a card for my blog but didn't have any), looking at purses and instant print cameras (anyone know the benefits/downfalls of Fujifilm vs. Polaroid?), while binge watching Beauty and the Beast on Netflix. All in all not a horrible night for not sleeping ;)
Oh, and did I mention that I compiled a massive list of what I should have in my wardrobe? Yeah, that happened. Never mind that I'm broke, we'll not worry about those kind of details. 

Enjoy this sneak peek from our wedding day! :) This in one of only two pictures we've gotten to see so far :)
