If I won, I would enjoy a day at the spa.  I work in healthcare, and as the pandemic winds down and more and more are vaccinated, I could use a day of relaxation!

Since turning 50 years old I've finally started to take care of myself something I haven't done most of my life, so I would treat myself to a spa day dedicated to me exclusively.

After spending the last year being very careful to stay away from others--we haven't been in a grocery store since March 2020--seriously isolated, I would take my amazing husband to Virginia Beach for the day.  We would thank you for making the beach umbrella and chair rentals possible, have a great meal, and toast to having been vaccinated and able to reenter the world and feel safe again.

As a mental health provider working throughout the pandemic, I'd use the money to take a day off from my private practice to focus on self-care (a massage, a facial, meditation, and a walk in the woods) to replenish my energy and emotional resilience.

My husband and I would love to take a road trip to visit a beloved relative who will be turning 90 years old this spring! Neither of us has taken a road trip since Thanksgiving before the pandemic. We look so forward to celebrating a 90th birthday with family; while socially distanced! I would love this road trip... visiting my husband’s mom who is like a second mom to me!

I would take time off from moving to another state and help in taking care of our grandson.  His Mom now will be going back to work and she is worried about getting a baby sitter while she is working.
