Welp, Mother’s Day came early to my house. When Remedez HairSpa (a full-service Aveda salon and spa in Orem) asked if we’d like to do a review of their Stress Fix massage and pedicure, I was all PLEASE AND THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME.
I went yesterday, and you guys….I don’t want to sound like an overly gushy review, but it was seriously amazing. Great atmosphere, the sweetest staff, and thanks to that massage, my back isn’t sore for the first time in forever.
They have a bunch of Mother’s Day specials going on right now, so waiting would be silly. I might have already signed up for a monthly membership….
Buying my own gift is fine, right? Me and my pink shellacked toes think so.
There are two giveaways across the web today.
First up, Lindsay Roberts is giving away a bundle of goodies on her instagram account. You can see all of the goodies, RIGHT HERE.
Secondly, the amazing Aarean of the great blog The Color Issue is giving away two pairs on her blog, RIGHT HERE.
I hope you win!
Freshly Picked is about sweet baby feet, but more importantly, it’s about celebrating mamas and babies. Every week we will feature a birth story, a tale of the start of a mother and her child. We want this to be a resource for moms and future moms and a place for sharing and inspiring. Women become mothers in a million different ways. Here are their stories.
Many thanks to Lindsey Redfern for sharing this real-time account of her son’s birth and placement.
Sunday, 8:16 pm
As I write this, I am sitting at my kitchen table waiting for the call for us to come to the hospital to meet our hopeful third son.
I’m nervous and relieved that this day has finally arrived. If I am being totally honest with myself, I am scared. We’ve been to this point before but experienced a reversed adoption after placement.
My heart is racing, my neck muscles are tight, my toes are tapping and I am grateful to have something to keep my fingers busy while we wait. Tears are close to the surface–not sad tears, more sacred tears …if that even makes sense.
