A Day of Relaxation

Well, I am back. It has been busy for me lately. I excuse (right Amber). My life has been filled with birthday parties, playdates, and I have been trying to get the backyard ready for summer (the freezing winter killed all my flowers) so I have been planting flowers, pruning, watering, grooming you name it. Just crazy. With all that work it was nice to spend the day at the spa, my Mothers Day gift from Jared. It was WONDERFUL! I got a massage and facial and went in the sauna for a bit. It was nice to just be by myself in the peaceful surroundings . No crying, fighting, nursing, diapers, laundry, bills...nothing. Just me in my own thoughts in pure relaxation. Sometimes you just have to get away from it all for a bit. It's important that we women take that time for ourselves to get away from the hussle and bussle of life because it makes us better wives and mothers to our family. We return refreshed and with a new energy for our never ending calling in this world. Whether it be at the spa or on a walk or reading a book, just remember to take some time to yourself. Sometimes we forget. So go on... plan a day for just YOU!

Shoot. Did I say that? Well I sound nice don't I. Sorry. You have plenty of good excuses.
I'm glad you got a fun day at the spa. You should have called me. I would have come with. Sounds super fun.
It was good to see you Sunday. We'll have to play lots this summer. Yahooo!!!!
