Ever the frugal girl, I've been doing my own mani/pedi's since high school. The last time I treated myself to a sit back & relax nail session was about five years ago. The morning of my birthday, Mr. A surprised me with a manicure/pedicure. At a spa!
A few sips into my mimosa, with my thoughts whisper quiet, I proclaimed "I get it now. The spa experience."
Almost an hour into my pedicure (an hour! I know. It was heavenly pampering.), Ms. M painted onto my feet a creamy blue paste as easy on the eyes & smooth on the skin as I imagine the Greek sea to be. Then she nestled my feet into a hot towel cocoon that I affectionately called the best slippers ever. She asked if it was too hot & I replied "Some like it hot. And that someone is me!"
It was a blissful morning of being warmed me from the outside in & the inside out. Afterward, Mr. A took me & my Cha-Ching Cherry nails out to lunch. We sat at a bistro table along a quiet street & let the world go by one bite of good ole Southern food at a time.
One more thing...have a great day on purpose!
