Message from Gail Sharp, TallGrass Owner


Despite my best intentions, I wound up having a few pity party moments last month. Unnecessary, unproductive and depressing, of course. Luckily, the spiritual discipline I’ve been working on for years kicked in and I was able to recall many inspirational, positive, constructive words from a variety of sources that put me back into happy-gratitude land again.

Something in particular that came to mind was advice from a dear friend who said: “People are watching you all the time – your reactions, your words, your demeanor. You have no idea who you are influencing by the smallest things that you say or do, both negative and positive.” This reminded me of a video that TallGrass managers played recently at our staff meeting. It was a TED talk by Drew Dudley who described what he calls Lollipop Moments. I suggest you google this very cool explanation of the power we have to make someone’s life better by what we say or do, sometimes without even realizing it.

So what if my glum mood was bringing someone else down? Was my little issue big enough to influence someone else? You bet! Small actions can have huge effects, like when a big smile from a total stranger at the right time turns your day around. We’ve all felt that.

Back on track now, I’m thankful for friends and for my incredible TallGrass family – staff and guests – who support me through thick and thin. Hopefully, you will think about the fact that what you do can matter to people and I encourage you to create many Lollipop Moments!

pen Judy Jeute, Spa Babe

It’s no coincidence that the announcement of Judy’s spa babe award came just a few days shy of National Random Acts of Kindness Day (Feb 17). Judy knows that kind acts have a ripple effect and she embraces that theory…throughout the year.

At work in the TallGrass Nail Room, which is probably one of the livelier places in the spa, nice things happen all day long. As guests are celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, Judy and her fellow nail techs join the fun. “Our guests are very dear to us and we love having a good time with them,” she says. “Talking, sharing stories, giggling, it keeps everyone smiling all day long.”

Along with supporting TallGrass philanthropy projects – this year getting her husband involved, too! – Judy runs a llama rescue program at her home near Bailey. A former commercial outfitter, Judy provides a safe haven for abandoned animals so that they can be retrained and rehabilitated.

We applaud Judy’s efforts to make the world a kinder place and we’re glad she’s part of our TallGrass world!

Come and celebrate with us


TallGrass guests have lots of reasons to come to the spa to celebrate. Birthdays, anniversaries, girlfriend getaways, kid free days. We welcome them with festive boas, tiaras and party hats for their photo ops. And, we have art supplies on hand for making signs to announce their celebration messages. It’s a lot of fun for everyone.

Here’s a celebration message we really endorse: “Until further notice…celebrate everything.”

We invite you to visit our photo gallery for ideas on how you can celebrate, too.
