Beyond the Gate

 This is a little different for me. I was inspired by an early challenge I saw about black and white. This picture is of my Mom gate I changed to black and white with a picture of a camera.  Together they make a statement to see what is Beyond the gate. Lisa



National Splurge Day is observed annually on June 18th.  This day is a fun, feel-good holiday that was created for you to do something special for yourself.
Splurge, (as defined at Dictionary.com) is: to indulge oneself in some luxury or pleasure.
Take the time to pull away from the everyday busyness and stress of life to treat yourself.  Perhaps that splurge is extra whipped cream on your latte, an afternoon at the spa, or booking the vacation you have been dreaming about taking. Savor the indulgence. If you splurge on a day off to play golf, enjoy each moment of the 18 holes regardless of the score. Maybe the splurge is for a bottle of expensive wine.  Select a good friend who will enjoy the vino, too.
Whatever it is, this is the day for it. National Splurge Day is about celebrating you and doing something you may not usually take the time or money to do.
