orced suggested my mom take the day off work on her birthday. It was a struggle but she relented. My dad looked after my daughter and I took my mom out for her surprise. On the drive to Dove Spa my mum asked if we’d be stopping for lunch. She was hungry. I didn’t want the tranquility of our spa experience to be ruined by tummy rumbling, so I pulled into a fast food restaurant. “Surprise!” I exclaimed. “Happy birthday!”
She wasn’t impressed, but this didn’t stop her from ordering a burger to go. I asked if she needed to use the restroom as we had a bit of a drive ahead of us. That question was still lingering in the air as I turned out of the parking lot and directly into the next drive-way to park. The spa was right next door.
My mother laughed and *may* have called me a rude name. “We’re going to Dove Spa??!!” she squealed.
And so began our mother-daughter day together.
We got the full treatment at Dove Spa (aka, the most serene place on earth). Ironically, our treatment package was called the “Time To Get Together” experience.
Our treatment included:
– a Skin Talk diagnostic which measures the oil, water, elasticity and pigmentation levels – results and suggested treatments/products are printed for you
– 30 minute massage
– scalp massage
– fingernail and toenail polish
The door between our two treatment rooms was open so we could be together. I was tempted to take a photo of my mom during her facial (she looked so beautiful and relaxed) but my sweet mama threatened me with adoption if I took photos “during.”
After our treatment we relaxed in the lounge sipping green tea and laughing hysterically. Oh wait, I was the only one laughing; as my mom walked into the room, post scalp massage I couldn’t help but joke, “Have a seat, Kramer!” Good times…sigh…good times.
If you’d like to treat your mother to something special this Mother’s Day, a spa day is a beautiful way to spend the day together!
