There was a cable show that first introduced myself and others to the idea of a treat yourself afternoon.
It was a comedy & so this episode was all about some of the funny ways the characters treated themselves on treat yourself afternoon. Well, it all absolutely resonated with me. That’s how I started going to the cannabis dispensary. Prior to the idea of a afternoon of treating myself, I was all about doing all the stuff I needed to do for our family. And that’s exactly what I want to be doing by the way. I love being a professional, a mother & a wife however it can spread a woman pretty thin. So the idea of having a whole afternoon where I did nothing however treat myself absolutely became appealing. These afternoons, I provide myself a single of those afternoons once a quarter. And there is no canceling due to other needs or whatever. Treat myself afternoons are written in stone says our spouse. The state next to us has legalized marijuana. Both medical marijuana & recreational marijuana are now legal there. So I start by booking a nice hotel room for two afternoons. Typically, I leave the night before since it’s a three hour drive. Sporadically I take a bestie with myself and others however I’ve also found that the solo trips can be quite pleasing as well. The first thing I do on our treat afternoon is to head to the cannabis cafe. There I’ll indulge in the best coffee ever and the best cannabis edible I have ever put in our mouth. From there, I let the afternoon just unfold however for sure, I treat myself all dang afternoon.
