Over the course of the past few months, I’ve been working on a pretty big project to remodel my home’s kitchen. Boy, has it been a stressful time; picking out wall color, new counter tops, and searching for appliances to match it all! It’s been a heck of mess trying to organize and pick out contractors as well. At least I’ll have my new kitchen here just in time for summer!
Luckily now, there’s a lull in the work that I personally need to do. So last week, the contractors were at the house with my husband and they were going to spend the day putting in our new cabinets. There was no need for me, so I decided that I was going to take a break from all the stress and treat myself to a mini vacation – a day of relaxation.
So to begin my day, I went ahead and scheduled a massage at my favorite spot – Massage Envy. They’ve always treated me well and I make them my massage choice time and time again. I signed up for a 2 hour deep tissue and it was terrific! All the stress built up for months was able to finally be released. I finally felt like all was well with the world.
After my massage, I decided to take a little walk around the mall that’s right near the massage parlor. I treated myself to some new spring clothes. What a great day!
Next I wanted to make a little trip to one of my favorite establishments here in Richmond, James River Cellars Winery. They make a delicious rosé that I love to treat myself to whenever I get the chance. Aside from the delicious wine, they also have a wonderful view that I can just watch for hours. I brought along a book I’ve been dying to read and spent a few hours just enjoying the scenery and wine.
By days end I felt completely rejuvenated and relaxed. By the time I got home, our new cabinets were successfully installed and looked great! Such a wonderful day thanks to some hardworking men, a massage, and some wine. Maybe I should schedule more house projects just so I can relive a day like this!
