29 Days of Thanks - Day 1

Today I spent 3 hours at the salon having my hair colored, washed, conditioned, cut, slathered with products, blown-dry, and flat-ironed.

It was fantastic.

And because I was there for so long, sans children, I was able to contemplate what I was thankful for today. And it only took me a second to realize, it was those moments. I live a life that allows me to spend 3 hours and an extravagant amount of money just to make me feel better about the way I look. This would be inconceivable to a large part of the world's population.

So today...I am thankful for my life that allows me such luxuries. And for my styist, and friend, Nikki.

Cause she makes me look purty.

I need to get my haircut, too - that sounds heavenly.

Oh, so nice.
