Happy Holidays To You From Me A Bit Early This Year!!




I know it is a bit early to be posting this since Christmas is still a week away but after careful thought and deliberation I have decided to take a blogging break during the holidays.

It is always so hectic with parties, last minute gift buying, cookie baking, and present wrapping (not to mention having my kids home all day long) that I think it will be easier and less stressful for me and more than likely my whole household if I take a two week break while the holidays are in full swing. 

Plus, I really want to focus on my family this time of year because they are after all, what matters most.  :D


I wanted to take a moment though to stop and say thank you to everyone I consider a friend (which is ALL of you!!). You guys mean so much to me and I truly hope you all have a wonderful holiday season in whatever way you do (or maybe don't) celebrate. 

But most importantly, I want you all to stay safe, eat lots of goodies, and most of all have fun!

I hope you all get something exciting and bookish this Christmas and since I won't be around New Years Eve either, stay safe, be smart, and have fun!!

  11. I hear you. I have reviews posting during the break just because I needed to get them in, but I won't be spending much time blogging if any during the next two weeks. I will be busy with family and the holidays. Stay safe and have a wonderful break. See you back in 2016!
