Have been to a spa or nail salon?
One of the first things they do is soak your feet in some nice warm/hot water because it immediately puts you in a state of relaxing feeling.
Well this is what I want all moms to experience, this spa-like feeling at least 3 nights a week and it’s so easy to do!
Soaking my feet is one of my most favorite thing to do when everyone has gone to bed.
Everyone is asleep, now I get to have some me time!
I get a bucket, fill it enough to cover my feet up to right before my ankles with warm/hot water.
I like it more on the hot side so when it cools down it’s still warm, I dislike my water turning cold too fast.
My favorite items to place in my water is lavender epsom salt and tea tree oil, it smells amazing, nourishes my skin and the oil is great for keeping my toe nails sanitized.
For the best results, I suggest getting the two items below:

Reflect back on the day, what were the amazing things that took your breathe away?
For me, my children being brave and having fun at a baby shower we went to today was great, as they get really shy/nervous around big crowds.
Another blessing is that today we got to watch two full movies in our movie room, as we don’t have plenty of time to do that.
Last blessing would be that I carved out some time to soak my feet in my favorite lavender epsom salt before going to bed… thats what prompted me to write this post.
