It’s funny, I didn’t realize that I have never gotten a spa treatment until I sat down to write this post. I have had a massage because I had sciatica and that was the one effective way I found to relieve the pain. I had a manicure and pedicure before my wedding.

Elementary School Parents: 19 Kinds You’ll Find in Every School
