Rosewater and Santa Fe
About 5 years ago, I went on a girl’s weekend trip. At the time, I had a 2-year-old, was incredibly unfulfilled in my marriage (to a narcissist), and really, really, needed a weekend away. My dearest friend, who lived in Colorado and who was recently divorced, agreed met me in Santa Fe.
When we got there, there were heavy clouds in the sky, a skyline of snowy mountains, and an abundance of green trees (which are things often taken for granted in other places in the country where rain is abundant, but which are treasured in the dry New Mexico climate).
Healing in Santa Fe
As a mom of a young child, in an unhappy marriage, I found the experience to be quite nurturing and healing. Sure – it had been the first weekend away since my daughter was born, but there magic and healing in the small, artsy town of Santa Fe with my dear friend.
While we were there, we visited a couple spas and picked up handcrafted Rosewater Facial Mists. It was nourishing, hydrating, and softening, while providing an antioxidant boost.
Ever since then, I’ve wanted to re-create that spa experience with a DIY Rosewater Face Mist, and I finally did it!
