“A Day at the Spa is something out of a beautiful dream…”

Our first ever, “Mermaid for a Day” Sweepstakes wrapped up at midnight on Mother’s Day and the MerMom love that poured in to my e-mail for judging in the sweepstakes required tissues, to say the least. Out of more than 50 entries, the task to choose a winner was daunting. So MANY deserving Moms! One entry, in particular, stood out, and it was a unanimous decision that this Mom needed a day to escape at Senara Spa.
We are pleased to announce that Senara’s Grand Prize winning Mom in our first ever “Mermaid for a Day” Sweepstakes is Mikell D.!!! Mikell has won a Gift Certificate for our Total Renewal Spa Package, which includes:

With Mikell’s permission, here is her story:
It’s been a brutal couple months for me… After many years of suffering, my father passed away at the end of March. One week later, my beloved son died unexpectedly leaving a wife and 2 beautiful children. He was only 33. My heart is truly broken… I am exhausted taking care of my family, but treasure every day I have with them. A day at the spa is something out of a beautiful dream.” – GRAND PRIZE WINNER nomination for Mikell D., mother of 2
“A Day at the Spa is something out of a beautiful dream…” More poetic words have never been spoken by a mother, and we are honored to be able to help her live that dream. Congratulations, Mikell! From all of Senara’s MerMoms, we look forward to treating you to that “beautiful dream” in our Spa!

This is one tough momma! We recently had our first baby a couple months ago… After 70 hours of labor, Ashley gave birth to our first born son. She worked so hard to bring our baby into this world and hasn’t stopped since that day in caring for him, maintaining our home, and all the other things that come daily with being a wife and mother. I would love to see all of her much-appreciated hard work rewarded with a day of pampering and relaxation. After all… Baby and Daddy think she has more than earned it!” – nomination for Ashley B, mother of 1
