Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Spring is here. It's my favorite season for its newness. Rebirth. Clean slate. There are a few other times of year I like for this reason too...New Year's Day, of course. I love how that always feels like another chance. Another chance to set goals. To feel clean--helps when you put away all the Christmas decorations. Another time is the first day back to school for the kids after a long summer. But, yeah, nothing feels as good to me as s.p.r.i.n.g. Ahhhhh. The green buds poking through the old brown leftover plants in my yard!? Yes, please! Pink buds on my naked winter trees! Yay! Seeing sprigs popping up where I had forgotten I planted new bulbs last year! Woo Hoo!
Today I went to Occoquan where I get my hair cut about every ten weeks. The town is sweet and eclectic. Getting my hair done makes me feel better--a fresh start, like spring! Best part--scalp massage! After the salon, I allow myself to wander in and out of shops. I don't know that area that well, so I enjoy the idea of freely meandering without worry. I sat outside at a cafe and had a salad. Then I got a mani-pedi at a cute little nail salon. It was more relaxation and I loved it. Best part--calf massage and hand massage! :)
I highly recommend getting out once in a while to rejuvenate. Wander around a cute town for an hour or two. Sit at a sidewalk cafe and sip an iced tea while people-watching. Especially this spring. Get out there and let the rebirth inspire your next move. Ahhhhhhhh.
