Here we are, summer at last. Every day the sun is out, I am grateful for its warmth and light. I have actually been going to the beach at 4 and staying until 8 because the light is so amazing. When was the last time you packed a picnic and ate outside for dinner? It is such a simple act and rewards so generously. It also reminds me that today is now, we so often procrastinate simple joys under the illusion we will have the time tomorrow, today is today so add some of those simple joys and surprise yourself.

Never before have I so appreciated the simple things as I do now. Don't get me wrong, I have had enough wake up moments to be humble and grateful, but this past April I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I actually don't think that it has hit me until just now, when I wrote the words. I share this because it was discovered in a simple mammogram and caught extremely early. So my blog is not going to be about the latest skin care advice or facial treatment, it is going to be about health, gratitude and body image.
