Big bottle, anyone?

Just like Jim Croce wanted to save time in a bottle, there are things that I wish I could capture and just hold on to. Here are some of mine.

*The smell of my kids when they were newborns

*Arizona sunsets

*The excitement of walking out of the temple
with Andrew for the first time as husband and wife.


*The sights, sounds, and smells of the beach


*The taste of cheesecake from Cheesecake factory


*The music and motion of the fountains at Bellagio

Well, yesterday, I added another moment to the list. The feeling of walking out of a spa after getting a massage. Actually, if I could stuff the whole 30 minute massage into the bottle, that would be even better. It was amazing. This was one of my Mother's Day gifts from Andrew that I redeemed. He's finally in town, so I could schedule it. :)

The whole experience was so relaxing. It couldn't have been timed better with all the stress of selling the house, buying the new house, packing, inspections, etc. It was just a little slice of heaven.

I am so jealous you got a massage! I have always wanted one! Did you fall asleep during it? I hear a lot of people do. I hope that when I get one someday I can stay awake to enjoy every minute!
