Time for a Summer Break





I had planned on taking a blogging break while we were on vacation this summer. But after reading THIS ARTICLE from Harleena Singh,

I realized it is really OK to take a break...a real break.

I really loved what Singh had to say about the importance of unplugging and really focusing time on my family. I loved how she acknowledged how much time it takes to blog and stay "active" in social media.  It does take time.

Do I enjoy it? YES! But, everyone needs a break sometime. 

I haven't accepted any books for review for the months of July and August.  I want to have some time to catch up on books I want to read as well as books I'm behind on reviewing.  I want to have some time to read without the pressure of a deadline and review.

 I want to relax.

So, with all that in mind.  This will be my last post for awhile.  I'm not going to say for sure when I will be back, but it won't be in July.  I'll still be around the Twitter and Facebook world, checking in and chatting, but no posts or reviews here on the blog.

Why? 

Because I need a break.  

I need to spend time doing other stuff.  I need to enjoy vacation.  I need to enjoy the rest of our summer.

So, I'll be back. I PROMISE! Some time in August likely.  Our kids go back to school August 18.  Then, I'll need something to do, right?

Thanks for being patient.  
Thanks for being loyal readers.  
Thanks for understanding.  

Enjoy the rest of your summer.  I know I will.  And when I return, I'll have some great photos to share, some projects that I hopefully completed, and lots of great book recommendations!
