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

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
