I can't believe I turned 49 this year. I remember thinking my mother was so ancient when I was 12...and she was 30! She had me very young, at 18 years old, but I still thought my mother was SO. old.
I remember thinking, "She wouldn't be so bad if she'd just go to a 2 week spa, and do some serious exfoliating."
Ha! The young are cruel. And so wrong! My mother looked great then - she was only 30!
Now, at 49 I laugh bitterly at, and to, myself. It would take a lot longer than a two-week spa to get me in prime shape. Are there 6-month spas? That just might put a dent in it.
Yes. That's what I want for my birthday next year. A trip to a 6-month spa. And after having lived for half a century, I think I deserve it. We all deserve it! If you've spent 50 years being a daughter, a wife, a mom, and a hard-working gal-who-is-always-game-for-adventure, then you, too deserve a 6 month spa. In the Swiss Alps!
So, to the people who are responsible for my birthday gifts next year (ahem, husband) you have a whole year to save. Moi? I'm going to be exfoliating.
