day seventeen: a day with mama

Although we butt heads a lot of the time with our strong personalities and the my-voice-needs-to-be-heard mentality, there is no one else that knows me as well as my Mom does. As I get older, I'm starting to appreciate what my mom does for me more and more. And, as I mentioned in my previous post, she is one fashionable lady. We decided to have a mother-daughter date, starting with lunch at Coza and then spending the rest of the day at Spa Utopia. We sipped their signature tea (rooibos, sweetened with apple juice and a sprig of mint) while dabbing our faces with eucalyptus-infused cold towels in the steam room. We both had a massage, and myyy goodness. I'm tempted to get one every month. I was so relaxed and in the best mood possible! Actually amazing. Afterwards, we sat in the lounge with the fire roaring, clad in the fluffiest robes and talking about life over white wine. It was great quality time, and it doesn't happen enough in our lives! So please give your Mom's a big hug for me, or at least call them up and chat about the day. They'll appreciate it, I promise.
