Yesterday I went and had a pedicure. I love pedicures. They are just one of the ways I nurture myself - which I firmly believe we all should do. It's a gift I give myself.
I didn't always get pedicures. In fact, up until about 10 years ago, I never even wore color on my toenails. I don't think I ever had color on them, not even as a kid. I remember the first time I had my toenails painted. It was at a women's retreat and we stayed up into the wee hours talking, laughing, and painting each other's nails. At first, I said 'no, I don't want color on them,' but then gave in and ended up liking the way they looked.
That was the start. At first, I would paint them myself every once in a while. Then I went to a nail salon and had a professional pedicure and I've never gone back to doing them myself. Of course, they can apply the color better than I can but that's not why I continue to go. It's the leg, ankle, and foot massage that I find heavenly. I love how smooth my heels end up being. And on top of it all, I find it to be a great stress reliever.
If you've never had a professional pedicure, I encourage you to give it a try.
So, my Aloha Friday question is:
Do you get regular pedicures? Do you love them as much as I do?
