margies beauty salon

When Margie chose a location for her beauty salon, she didn’t have Jody in mind.

She had no idea that Jody would capture a deep blue New Mexico sky that contrasted perfectly with moss green tiles. She couldn’t have known that Jody would pick out how the curtains and salon sign match when the Tucumcari sunshine hits the building in a particular way.

Margie probably didn’t give a thought to how Jody would finish off the framing with a strip of asphalt, adding punctuation to the image, matching the opening paragraph of the blue sky with a closing chapter.

But Jody has shown us the road and how once you’ve been to Margies you can step out, suitably beautified and ready for the next chapter in your life.
