This afternoon I took some much needed time for myself. I took care of my hair, making the trip to maintain the color. I reconnected with the hair stylist I previously visited a couple years back, and I’m so relieved that I did so. It’s refreshing to see someone who truly pays attention to your requests!
Making the trip to the salon brought back memories: visiting friends near the area, and passing by spots favorable to hang out (and not so favorable locations!). I still speak to one of these close friends on a regular basis. She moved to Puerto Rico a few years ago, but we maintain contact on a weekly basis. Thankfully her power was restored back in mid November, and she and her son are in good spirits. She wants to visit NJ in the coming year, and we’re hopeful that could take place soon.
As life moves on, close friends are hard to come by, so it’s important to cherish the true connections you have in day-to-day life. They are so valuable.
