Unexpected Happiness

I just love when things click into place and you weren’t even planning for them.

The last few days have been like that. I was away with my daughter but was able to leave a tad early to see my brother and that allowed me to get home yesterday early instead of late. Yeah. This meant that we got a few precious hours of alone time before our week of travel.

We made good use of this and found quite a few ways to amuse ourselves. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today was going to be a day of catching up and laundry and then a few errands got thrown in including a fun stop at my favorite store, Target, with the daughter.

Come home, phone rings, prescription to fill for Alex right away so back to Target.

Now what? I had ย already walked around Target. I had time to kill and a dinner to attend this evening.

So I ended up at my hair salon and was able to get a walk-in appointment which included a hot towel conditioning treatment, a scalp massage and a hand and arm massage. It’s actually the best hair cut I have gotten in a long time with all those relaxation treats an unexpected bonus.ย Having a good hair cut always makes me feel better and more confident.

Alex left shortly after dinner for the rest of the week. Before he left we made love and really connected. That is such a welcome change that it still feels a bit unexpected.

Unexpected pampering. Unexpected connection. Unexpected happiness.

  4. It’s wonderful when things just seem to fall into place like that! So happy to hear that all is right in your world, Zoe:)

  5. Sounds perfect! I love unexpected little things like that. And I am also very easy to please, so I can be happy about something like this for days.
    DH wants me to grow out my hair a little though, so no hair cut for me for a while. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    It was pretty great Dee!

    I hope it lingers too Susie. So far it seems to be holding.

    Thanks SNP!

    It can be wonderful, Thanks Tess.

    Julia, the unexpected can be pretty nice sometimes. My hair is still below my shoulders so its not too short.

  7. Gee Zoe, you sure do know how to make another girl jealous! lol ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I feel great when I’ve gotten a new haircut and feel so good about it too. What is it with woman and hair? The extra treatments sound great too! Connecting with your man and having precious alone time is certainly a treat. Seeing family and shopping too- what more can a girl ask for?
    Very happy for your unexpected happiness! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Riley. It was fun. Hope you have a great weekend too.

    You are so right Grace. It is somehow more fun when it is unexpected.
