Gail RidingsOf course, this month the focus is on LOVE! Not a bad thing to keep front and center.

I've been blessed to be able to give and receive love from many people. Our team at TallGrass truly loves one another and our guests, too. They demonstrate it every day and it's incredibly inspiring to me. My father, Ben, while not an outwardly mushy guy, has shown me his love constantly over the past 50+ years. For Christmas, he went to the trouble of having his really cool, old cowboy boots totally restored and made into a beautiful western purse for me. It was a creative, thoughtful and loving gift.

Most loving of all, my wonderful husband, Chuck, continues to teach me about love every single day. He is not only the handsomest man around, but he treats me like a queen, supporting me, taking care of me, believing in me, listening to me, laughing with me and just plain loving me. Ever patient, never critical, he's there for me consistently and still has the time to help not only his friends and his clients (he's a State Farm agent), but be the first to assist a total stranger in need. I waited a very long time to find my true love (I was in my fifties) so for those of you still looking, take heart. He or she is out there!

I'm hoping that you are finding love in all the right places this February – friends, family or romance. We'd love to show you our own TallGrass "love" the next time you come in for a visit.

Celebrate YOU

Love"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."...Buddha

Just when it seems like all the focus on Valentines Day is on couples, we want to shift the spotlight to YOU by encouraging you to give love to yourself this Valentine's Day. Not everybody has the perfect mate and whether or not you do, you can still celebrate Valentine's Day by being good to yourself. Come to TallGrass with a friend, a sister or just come alone and show yourself some love. We promise to make you feel special.

Brie Francis
February Spa Babe

Brie FrancisA stylist in the TallGrass Hair Salon, Brie has a passion for making people feel beautiful. Guests often bring photos of celebrity looks they'd like to try and Brie is inspired to work her magic with the latest trends. She loves to create the dark-to-light fades of color called "ombre" and the bright, bold pops of color that make it so much fun to be fashionable.

In announcing Brie's selection as spa babe, TallGrass owner Gail Ridings described her as someone to emulate, who shows excellence in her work, is focused and always available to help whenever she's needed. "TallGrass is the best work experience I've ever had," Brie says. "I love that it's like a family here. Everyone is so great."

Brie is an outdoor kind of gal. Depending on the season, she could be enjoying snow sports or rambling along a hiking trail, probably with her dog. She is pictured here with Gail.
