Just Float

bull-dog-slobber-sleeping-surrender-letting-go-cute-animalsAs you know from my previous post I recently experienced the art of Floating. What is it you ask? Well, it can be described as the best freaking thing since sliced bread by me.

In the beginning, it took me awhile to get comfortable. Naked and alone in pitch black room takes a minute to absorb. 

I closed the door but left the low light and music on at first. The water was body temperature warm and soothing. Eventually, I did turn the lights and music off as I slipped into the quiet, peaceful zen. It didn’t take long before I was able to completely let go. Free at last.

The coolest part for me was having no concept of time whatsoever, and not caring about it at all. It feels so good.

Float Spas are popping up in my area, but from what I understand floating is nothing new, however, the experience has certainly changed. Once you add the word Spa it becomes sexy. 

Apparently, floating also went by the name Isolation Tank, and are you ready … Sensory Deprivation Tank, as far back as 1954. This sounds scientific, not sexy so there were no appointments needed.

Today isolation tanks are located in beautiful rooms with inviting names like “Oasis” or “Grotto” that are chock full of amenities like fluffy towels, robes, scented soap, and shampoo. Anything to divert you away from the fact that you will soon be naked as a jaybird.

My room was spectacular with its private shower, candles, and a hint of lavender. This is imageshow you get your zen on. The room my husband experienced is best described as a Pink Floyd lap of luxury fusion. Trippy with a dash of zen.

The idea behind the floatation therapy is to provide you with a way to pause the hectic, saturated world and enter a state of deep mental and physical relaxation. It takes you away from the endless sensory experiences that seem to consume us these days. It should be mandatory for teenagers and college students. 

Just imagine if you could go into your head and give it a good Spring cleaning, leaving not a  single dust bunny to clutter your thoughts, allowing you to focus on whatever you please. It basically brings out the best in your brain. My mind left fresh s a daisy.

The magnesium from the Epsom salt-infused water brings your muscles back to life. It relieves tension and makes your skin incredible.  I left looking like a smooth glow-worm.

All in all, it was peaceful, relaxing, invigorating, enlightening all rolled up into one amazing 90 minutes. This was a first for me and my husband, and we would both do it again, and again, and again. As they say, whatever makes your boat float, or in this case, booty. 

Enjoy the Ride!

Friday Flash of Fame

I have featured my nephew Evan, the 19-year-old owner/operator of the MOO Food Truck, in a previous post. Today he has elevated from being “mentioned” to full-blown Star status.

That’s right folks, look who was featured not only in, but on the COVER of Bucks Life Magazine. A young Entrepreneur starting his own business in a poor economy, with much success I might add.  There was some other guy who started a business in a poor economy…hmm, what’s his name again? Oh yea, that’s right…..Bill Gates!

Having an idea, putting it into motion and watching it blossom into what you could only imagine is pretty cool if you ask me. Of course, his relentless persistence also had a hand in bringing this dream to life. Having a thought at 11 years old and making sure everyone you come in contact with knows about it until your 18…really has its perks.

Evan has been a food snob since his diapers days. Lets just say, he could easily be that child on the cover of TIME, and we’ll leave it at that. He spent his toddler years wearing the title “picky eater” until he manifested himself into what we see today. A young man who is conscious of what he eats, where it comes from, how it is raised or grown and the effect it has on his community. Basically he has elevated his “picky eater” title to “food conscious” and he wears it very well indeed.

By incorporating these beliefs into his business, he is able to provide his customers with a unique product. Evan will not serve his customers anything he wouldn’t eat himself and that is where we all benefit. His high standards are a very healthy alternative, especially when you are craving a burger and fries.

MOO Meal

All of the ingredients down to the bun on MOO are local. The burgers are made from 100% grass-fed beef that is ground daily. The fries or the Sexiest Spuds in the world, as we like to call them, are  hand-cut and made to order.  Don’t fret, the vegetarian community can also satisfy their taste buds with a mixed salad made with local greens and Evan’s own dressing.

Aside from giving your taste buds something to talk about, MOO is also supporting our Local Farmers…one customer at a time.

So, if you are ever in Buck County, PA., make sure you swing by to satisfy your buds. You can find more information at the following link. TheMOOTruck

Dream your dreams and Enjoy the Ride!
