Treat Yourself

Relax, unwind and re-center yourself. It’s tax season, which means that you are probably buried in work, paperwork or a combination of the two. But, it doesn’t have to be tax season for you to treat yourself. It can happen any day of the week, anytime of the year! Fortunately for you, Chatham County is home to many havens, places where you can get your mind off of life’s many stressors. You may find relaxation at the park, at the spa or right in front of the television.
