The Rest Stop

This weekend I'm off to enjoy the company of friends being in town, random excursions, meeting up with family and probably not doing any work at all for the first time in I don't know how long. It is special and necessary to take a breather once in a while. And when the climate is sunny with a burst of chill it's quite easy to get lost in the relaxation of a weekend.
I am doing my best to make more time for loved ones on the weekend, but don't worry I will still be catching up on your lovely blogs in due time. Do you have any special plans for the weekend or even for the coming week?

  10. That sounds like the perfect weekend!  Sometimes you do need to slow down, enjoy your family, and take a break from work.  I know I'm definitely trying to do a lot more of that.
