Happy Labor Day Weekend!



I don't normally take very much time off on my blog because I really do love being here, reading and replying to comments and of course visiting other blogs but this Labor Day weekend I have decided to take some much needed time off.

I am trying not to panic at being away from the computer for three whole days but...I think my family and I need the break, well, maybe I just need the break. Either way I am closing my laptop and will try my hardest not to return until Tuesday morning. 

I know I am going to feel so behind on visiting blogs but I will do my best to get caught up on Tuesday when the kids go back to school. To keep my work load  lighter I am also going to take a break from posting anything this weekend as well so I wanted to take the time now to wish everyone a very safe and happy Labor Day weekend!

I hope you all get to do those things you love best, be with family, friends, take a much needed nap, whatever it is you like to do and of course, find that perfect book to read over the long break. 

Thank you all so much for visiting every day and all your wonderful comments. I really do love all the friendships I have made since I started my blog and I cherish all of you! You guys can make me smile when I am having a bad day with your love of books. It is so much fun having others to share my passion with that truly understand. 

See you guys on Tuesday!!

  3. Breaks are awesome, Ali. Everyone needs one from time to time. I always make sure to take at least 4 breaks every year.
    Anyways, I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family and we'll all be around when you get back! :)

  5. Taking time off from blogging is SO hard! I can resist peeking for a day, maybe two, but 3? No way! LOL I'd have to lock-up my smartphone. Hehe That being said, enjoy your long weekend, it's also Labour Day here in Canada which marks the end of the summer, so it's kinda bitter sweet. Happy Friday!

  6. Time off is always a good thing Ali! I know the feeling - whenever I take a little time, even just on weekends, I always feel a little out of sorts the day I come back. Like I've missed a lot being away even though I really haven't. BUT, blogs are a ton of work, and you definitely need to step away now and then, so enjoy your holiday weekend!!!!

    Also, I see you're failing a touch already by responding to comments... GO AWAY ALI ;-)

  7. Awee have fun out there! Spending time with family is always a wonderful thing. I'm not a full-time blogger but I know a lot of people out there that spend so much time and dedication to their blogs that it's hard to get any time off at all. And you all deserve it!!

  8. I'm a few days into my blogging hiatus and I have to admit, it's quite lovely :) I do miss posting and reading comments, but it's nice to just step away for a few days and focus on other things! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  12. I have stuff scheduled, though right now I'm not posting on Sunday. But I'll be away from the computer for the most part. Actually all next week I'll be away most of the time because my parents are coming to visit. But sometimes we just need to take a break. Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Don't even feel guilty for one minute about taking time off. You deserve it. I have had to take plenty of time off this summer and it helped recharge me. So go have fun and enjoy the last week of summer. See you back on Tuesday!

  17. I always skip posting blogs on holidays because I know nobody will be reading. If I get free time, I read blogs. We're visiting family this weekend, so I may be able to squeeze in some blog reading time early in the morning, while everyone else is asleep! That's often my "me" time, even on vacation.

  18. I always feel bad when I miss some time, but only for a minute. I hope you enjoy your time with your family because that is the most important thing. :) I always unplug when I am out of town.

  23. That's all right!! Take your well-deserved rest ;) You've done a very good job this week and you need a vacation, three days or a week or more. Have fun with your family!

  25. Enjoy your days off! Sometimes it's just nice to sit back and relax. I haven't been online much either in the last couple weeks because of vacation and all sorts of other things going on; just haven't had the time. It's nice to come back a bit more refreshed though.
