Taking A Break To Save Grace

I have recently had to make the hard decision to take a break from the blog. It is not a decision I come by lightly. The blog has been a true source of creativity, passion and connection for me and I have loved every second of it. However, in late September my constant companion Gracie Lou was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Doctors told us that we needed to make an immediate decision about whether to take our chances with brain surgery or let Gracie go. Josh and I decided to give Gracie a shot at survival and opted for the brain surgery. Now, several months after the surgery and radiation treatments, we are spending a majority of our time tending to Gracie’s post op needs. It has been time consuming, worrisome and often heartbreaking but I am determined to give Gracie everything I’ve got to help her heal. She has been an incredible source of comfort, companionship, loyalty, love and joy for me from the moment I adopted her and I know in my soul I owe her as much as I can give in return. So, something else must give if I am to make Gracie a priority in an already busy, kid filled life. Since I can’t really table the whole mothering thing, it is the blog that must take a back seat. Every day brings with it minor but important improvements in Gracie’s behavior and health and I am hopeful that by the new year she will be back to her old self and I will be back to sharing all my Heavenly Days inspiration with you! Thank you for your continued support, your good wishes and your loyalty. May this holiday season bring you an abundance of peace, joy, love and laughter. See you in 2018!Continue Reading

A Belated Look At Our Family Halloween

This years Halloween costume search led me to the most fabulous Etsy store where I found the perfect costumes not just for the kids but for Josh and I too. I’ve never done a family themed Halloween before but it was so much fun and got us so much positive attention I’m thinking it may be our new Halloween tradition! For as long as I can talk the kids into it that is.Continue Reading

My Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 2

Katherine Heigl's Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 2
Perfect skin has always been a bit elusive for me. Well that’s not totally true. In my early teens I had flawless skin that I totally took for granted. Then I hit about 18 and was riddled with the most persistent, ugly, cystic acne imaginable. I was totally mortified by it, but unable to clear it up no matter how many facials, tonics, ointments or creams I tried. Finally, at my wits end I succumbed to my dermatologist’s pressure to try the much debated Accutane. It did clear my acne up in about a month but left me with a pretty sensitive stomach and highly sensitive skin. I still suffer from the occasional hormonal breakout even now, and on top of the indignity of zits at 38, I’m also dealing with wrinkles. So now I need products that combat both, which seems wholly unfair to me but as the saying goes, the weather may be fair, but life never is.Continue Reading

My Favorite Beauty Finds: Part 1

Katherine Heigl's skin care regime
Over the last few years I’ve managed to hone in on a few things that help me look and feel my most beautiful. I’ve streamlined my skin care regime and cherry picked the best products to help me achieve that often illusive clear skin glow. I’ve carved out time to get my roots done regularly and have my lash extensions cared for (said lash extensions are kind of my new favorite beauty find by the way!) I’ve discovered the perfect apps to help me maintain a consistent, quick and relatively easy workout routine and I’ve mostly stopped buying the latest trends in favor of fits and styles I know are more flattering to my figure. It’s taken me about 20 years to figure out what I most need, what truly works and how I really want to feel and I thought I’d share my findings with you. As I started listing and linking to all my favorites I realized I needed to break this post up into parts. It was getting a little overwhelming and way too long to be easily digestible so I decided to start my beauty share with my favorite lash extension line, my 10 minute or less makeup routine and the two apps I’m using now to help rid myself of the last of my baby weight. The next post will have all the info and links to my all time favorite skin care products and after that I’ll dive into my go to jeans, tops and sweaters that help shape, lift, minimize and flatter me the most. I’ve discovered that feeling beautiful is beautiful and that there’s no shame in passing by a mirror and smiling at what you see!Continue Reading
