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.
