Celebration Challenge

As you know, “celebration” is a central theme at TallGrass, along with relaxation and rejuvenation, of course. In this first month of 2018, I challenge you to celebrate something every day.

There are times in our lives that we feel like we don’t have anything to celebrate. And I get it. I’ve felt that way, too.  Maybe this past year, or month, or week held some sorrow, some pain, some difficult – or even excruciating -- moments.  However, as I’ve aged, I realize that there is always SOMETHING to celebrate – even something simple like waking up, or seeing a sunset, or the touch of a family member, or a cherished pet. 

This past December, I celebrated 20 years of sobriety and I share that to let you know that it is possible to overcome negative, destructive habits and move forward with health and happiness.  And it is possible to celebrate something every day. Recently, during an ugly weather day, I asked my dear friend, Kimra what was her favorite season. She replied “The one I’m in.”  What a joyous and perfect attitude that I hope to emulate this year. Whatever I’m experiencing – good or bad – I will strive to celebrate something in the moment.  

I pray that 2018 brings you thousands of celebration experiences! Happy New Year!


So disappointed.
Gail, I have been coming to Tall Grass for a number of years. As a retired teacher from Evergreen Middle School I always enjoyed visiting your spa and seeing friends and former students. Today was an exception. Several things went wrong. I arrived early for a much needed relaxing time in your great room due to the fact my foot was broken and in a cast. I was then politely informed my appointment was cancelled. I had not received a phone call or an email telling me that dear Lacey would not be seeing clients. Her condition is serious and she is in my prayers. I immediately thought I would be placed with another stylist. No everyone was booked. I asked when I could see someone for a cut and all over hair color. When I was informed that the next availability was February 17, the tears began to flow. I was offered financial incentive, but I explained it wasn’t about the money; I needed the services from your salon. I am frequently on TV due to my position as an official with the NHL and always felt confident with the cut and color I had received from Tall Grass. Unfortunately, the treatment I received today was very unpleasant. I am forced to take my business elsewhere. Sincerely, Peggy Bohm 7202724264
