On Saturday, Robert and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. So we decided to pamper ourselves with a day at the spa and went to Sturebadet, a bath house that dates back to 1885. It’s a gorgeous place. Apparently, Greta Garbo went there and I have to say, there is something of old -school Hollywood glamour about the spa.
I’d been to Sturebadet before for a ladies night, but Robert had never been. So that made it fun. We each had a 20-minute massage and then we spent the afternoon in swimsuits and robes. We would meet up at the pool and hang out on the poolside lounges and in the cozy aroma room, then periodically separate to go into the sauna and steam rooms that are segregated for women and men. Neither of us has had a massage in years, so we really felt quite decadent. But as we’ve both been so busy lately, perhaps the biggest luxury was that we actually DID NOTHING but hang out, read and chat.
It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. The perfect way to spend our anniversary.
