This picture was taken without my knowing. Over the winter, I was suffering from Cabin Fever, feeling stale, and just needing a moment alone. Robert, being the loving and caring man that he is, suggested I sit outside in the cold and snow, and Sun, put on a mask, and just relax. I actually did this a number of times, and this photo was taken towards the end of winter, when I could actually open up my jacket and not feel freezing cold.
Growing up, my mother would sunbathe in the winter sun. Being European, spending time in the cold, windows open at bedtime, heat on low, was a given and kept my mom and our family, healthy and happy all winter long. So, it was not far fetched for Robert to suggest I sit outside in February!!
While I was applying the mask, Robert was lovingly setting up my chaise arrangement with wool blankets and pillows. It didn't take long for me to get comfortable, and promptly fall asleep. While the mask (Robert makes them and they are amazing!!) did it's magic, I slept for an hour, woke up, gently took the mask off, and looked and felt amazing the rest of the day and week!! Nothing like fresh air, relaxation, and a beauty treatment to revive the spirit!
