My daughter was determined to get me to schedule a treatment at one of the high end salons in the city.
Every time she suggested it, I found a reason why it wasn’t convenient for me.
I was reluctant to spend a significant amount of money on a spa treatment that I felt was unnecessary. I wasn’t interested in making the one-hour drive into the city, battling traffic and fighting for a parking spot. My daughter finally provided a gift card for Mother’s Day with a list of prepaid treatments at one of the best high-end salons in the area. She made a reservation for lunch at my favorite restaurant prior to our appointments. There was no way to get out of it. The lunch was really fantastic, and I always enjoy my daughter’s company. When we arrived at the salon, I was pleasantly surprised by the open, airy and comfortable environment. We were given a complimentary glass of wine, and then we changed into very soft and luxurious robes. My Mother’s Day gift card included a facial, manicure, pedicure and a massage. Each of those treatments took a considerable amount of time. I loved every minute of every one. I’ve never felt so pampered and relaxed. The facial rejuvenated my skin, making my face look brighter and younger. The massage soothed away sore, tense and tight muscles. The manicure and pedicure were both pure pleasure. I was amazed by how good my hands and feet both felt and looked afterward. Because of this wonderful experience, my daughter and I now meet up in the city for our salon treatments every month.
