I’ve seen blog posts by photographers called “Friday Faves”, and in them they talk about some of their favorite things. Well, since I like to blog on Wednesdays, I am calling my version of Friday Faves – “What’s Good Wednesday”. Thanks to my daughter for suggesting the name. 🙂 I’ve actually had this idea for a while now, and have been making mental notes about places and things that have caught my eye.
So, welcome to the January edition of “What’s Good Wednesday”. Without further ado, here are a few things that I have been loving lately:
Have you heard about salt caves? I never did, until I recently had the very relaxing experience of sitting in one at Rain Wellness Spa. The owner of the spa graciously offered me a session as I waiting for another service at her spa.
A Salt Cave is a relaxation room built of Himalayan salt, designed specifically to enjoy the amazing benefits of Halotherapy or salt therapy. Supposedly, there are a list of benefits from breathing in salt-infused air, such as better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, and overall wellness. According to the spa’s website, the healing properties of dry crystal salts, when gently inhaled in the calm dim glow of a protective cave, can bring about incredible results.
All I know for sure, is that I was overcome with a sense of total relaxation about ten minutes into my salt cave session. This feeling of zen stayed with me for a few hours after I left. I usually fall asleep pretty easily, then wake up in the middle of the night, and consequently have a hard time falling back to sleep. Not that night. That night I slept straight through the morning. LIKE A ROCK. Let me put it this way, before I left this place, I purchased two gift cards for my girls.
About a year ago, my oldest daughter and I took a fabulous pottery class at a local pottery studio called Earth and Fire Art Studio. Located in historic downtown Essex, CT, this unique and beautiful space offers an assortment of art classes. What is especially nice, is the owner fosters a sense of community with art openings and special events. I was invited to display my landscape images at her fall art opening last year. It was an honor and we had a wonderful time.
No, I didn’t make the gorgeous coffee mug below. It was a Christmas gift from my daughter, purchased from the studio. It’s my favorite coffee mug and I love the colors.
Matted and Framed Prints
My last “What’s Good Wednesday” mention is about something I feel very strongly about – printing your photos. We recently moved to a new beach neighborhood. Landscape photography is a passion of mine, so within a few days I was out there capturing the beauty and color of the beach and sunsets.
Did you know I have a Print Shop? I had one of my sunset images I captured matted and framed using the selection of colors and frames offered in my Print Shop. I absolute LOVE my print hanging on the wall in my living room!!
There is nothing like having a favorite photo, framed and hanging on your wall to always enjoy. Print those photos! And hang them up to enjoy forever. <3
Thanks so much for stopping by, and stay tuned for future posts of What’s Good Wednesday!
