Happy Thursday!  My girls are on Spring Break this week, so we are enjoying the slower pace of no homework, no rushed mornings, and no after-school activities.  I think sometimes we don’t even realize how hectic life has become until we have a break from it!  It has been so nice to just hang out at home and do not too much of anything.  Do you have big plans for Spring Break this year?

Last week’s one year celebration & giveaway was a lot of fun.  The 3 winners were posted on Sunday’s Weekend Wandering post–be sure to check it out if you haven’t already!

    I’m so glad you are having a wonderful spring break with your family, Ruth. It sounds like the girls’ idea of staying home was a really good one. Your spring break comes pretty early for us northerners. We could sure use one right now after a fresh coating of at least 8 inches of that white stuff yesterday. Our break will come when the weather is much more tolerable. 😉 Pretty funny. Carpe Diem!

    s basement in Illinois just isn’t going to find a revolution inside
    the United States, no matter the number of Internet posts he makes
    or what he says. Expanding your company means making the logical step of
    taking it to the online platform.

    Or would you the same as to apply to people companies that
    meet your strict preferences with regards to job profile and requirements.
    Debates continue as to whether publishing content frequently or infrequently could be the best strategy for building
    blog traffic and loyalty.
