Follow Friday (42)

Welcome to Follow Me Friday Hosted By and

This weeks question:

Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

Me at the beach this afternoon.

My favorite vacation spot is the beach…in fact that is were I am right now:) While I am here I plan on reading Promises, its about a mermaid, appropriate right?!?!


But lets be honest, the best place for me to catch up on my reading or relax at all is anywhere my children are not. Don’t get me wrong I love my girls who are 7, 5, and 3 years old. But any amount of time I get that is quiet and to myself, that is a vacation!

  8. Hopping through. I often think that true vacations aren't good for reading. Any time to yourself can be like a vacation.

  9. Happy Friday - I'm an old follower! Enjoy your holiday - though I have to agree, it's not often a holiday means unlimited reading time for me, either! A week off work, however...

    Great post!

    Nice hat! I always like to see people with hats, because I can't wear them (looks horrible on me!) And I wish I could be there right now. It looks sunny and hot, while I'm looking at a grey sky - and I think it's going to read soon.

  15. New Follower. Love the beach!

  16. Ok, you are the cutest ever. I didn't realize you had THREE girls, I thought there were two kiddos! I would choose the beach too, being so close and all. But doggone it, I'm not there right now which is a tragedy. (I understand about being where the kiddos are not. I get it.)

    1. It was cold, and rainy, and the only sunshine was as we packed to head home. The real tragedy in all this is that we didn't get to relax on the beach and read. :(

  17. Enjoy! wish I was there.

  18. Yes!!! The beach... my favorite too!! And I completely agree about any time alone being relaxing. I have a 7 month old... and though I value the time I have with him on the weekends soooo much since I work FT during the week, it's still nice to get that bit of FREE TIME where you can sit, read, and completely relax. :)
