Though most of us celebrate our mothers every day, it is a great reminder to have a day set aside each year to help us remember just how much we owe to them. It gives us the opportunity to take a break in our very busy lives to tell our mothers and to show them, how very much we love them. Because of our mobile society, for some of us it means a telephone call or a Skype visit. For others who live close to our mothers, it means special time spent with them. Cooking for our mothers, or taking them to dinner is always special because it is likely they spent many years cooking for us. Those of us who can, might consider giving our mothers a day at the spa. How wonderful to have someone wash their hair and cut or style it; to have manicures and pedicures – maybe a facial or a full body massage. For many mothers this would be a real treat – something they can’t or won’t do for themselves – something that will bring more enjoyment to their lives. As daughters, you may even want to join them in their day at the spa. What could be better than mother/daughter togetherness in celebration of both your lives. Here are a few area day spas you might want to consider:
