Painting My Nails, Touching My Heart

An evening of facials, pedicures, manicures, and girl talk.  Time with Grace is always at the top of my list of “Best ways to spend an evening.”

Grace has been working on nail art for several years and I am always happy when she offers to do mine.  Although they will no doubt only last at most a day, with all the cooking, canning, and cleaning on the agenda for tomorrow, it is wonderful to feel exotic and pretty even for a little while.


These evening with Grace are limited, I know, and they are even more special as she gets older.  My little girl is growing up so fast but tonight she turned off her phone, told her friends she was busy, and spent the night with me, and for this I am so much more than — Simply Grateful.

  1. Ohhh, how pretty! Are those your nails, fake nails, tips, gel, acryllic? She is so talented. How lucky is Mom? And how fun and how special!

    • They’re all mine. No tips, gel or acryllic — I can’t afford that luxury, too much money and too much time. Anyway, its a great way to spend some time with Grace. My nails will reach a certain length and then start to break and then I start over. They are almost there, plus all the pitting of plums is weakening them. It’s okay though because it’s just part of the process. They grow back.
