Back when my husband and I were dating, we always looked forward to Thursday nights. The way we figured it, it was practically the weekend, and there was Must See TV. At the time, I worked weekdays writing ads and weekend nights waiting tables, so Thursday was our night. We'd order burritos from our favorite burrito place (aptly named El Famous Burrito), park ourselves in front of "Friends" and just enjoy the evening. Now, about 15 years later, I still think of Thursdays as burrito night. But with three kids added to the mix, there are after-school activities and homework that come first, and sadly, burritos are no longer a staple but a treat. Which is probably a good thing.
I'm still a big fan of Thursdays, so I've decided to honor the day by posting something therapeutic - something fun or funny or feel-good or inspirational (nothing deep, believe me). I'll call it Therapeutic Thursday. I'm starting off with some aroma-style therapy, in the form of Lemon Cream Sugar Scrub (pictured above) from HeathensHearth on Etsy. I'm down to my very last bit, so now I just open the jar each morning and take a nice long whiff, and I'm telling you - it smells AMAZING! Just the right amount of sweetness to brighten my morning. My mom and sister are hooked on the Cafe Mocha, and my hubby likes the Coconut Lime.
I'm thinking that this Mojito Sugar Scrub with Lime and Peppermint would be quite therapeutic, too.
What lifts your spirits on this first Thursday of the fall?
