Let the Holidays Begin...on Wednesday...

Happy holidays to all! I took a bit of an unplanned break from blogging thanks to some work stress that spilled over into my real life. Let's just say that stress took its toll on my health and left me sleeping every moment that I wasn't working, and feeling pretty run down. I'm not exactly feeling chipper, but I'm SO looking forward to flying out to Hawaii on Wednesday to see my mother and soak up some sun! I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be sleeping on that flight over, and I'm actually looking forward to it.

Well, I'm so happy for the Christmas cheer that seems to be all around! In fact, just this last week I received a wonderful gift from Tina, from Bookshipper for the Christmas Bookswap. I have to say that it definitely brightened my day...after a tough one at that! Thank you so much Tina for your lovely book and gifts pictured below. I'm excited to read this play, and thank you for the lovely book accessories as well. Thanks Tina!

Regardless of where you're at in your holiday celebration, already free from school or work or travel...or not, I hope you have a great one. I'm so excited to read and relax over the break. I have no idea yet what I'll be packing along with me on my trip, but I know I have plenty to choose from. Now the I take books from the library or just my own? Sigh.


  1. Great gifts. I wish you a very relaxing and joyful Christmas time.
    Happy reading, of course!

  2. Aw, very nice gifts. Happy holidays, Becky!
