Used to be, every holiday I’d lock the bathroom door, leaving my husband to deal with the girls, and take a long, luxurious bubble bath. Inevitably one daughter or another (we have three) would knock on the door and demand to come in. Because t I needed that small piece of alone time I ignored their pleas. But someplace along the way the baths stopped. Too busy to spare the time, I guess.
Now my daughters are grown and on their own. Even so, it took a friend’s thoughtful gift to lure me back to the tub. For my birthday, this friend bought me six Lush bubble bath balls, each with a different scent and shape. I’ve been using those balls, half at a time—they’re big!—for a Sunday morning indulgence. So pleasant to relax in a scented, suds-filled tub, listen to music, and let my mind wander. I always emerge feeling relaxed and revitalized, ready for whatever the day brings.
What do you do to indulge yourself?
