Celebrate Good Times, Come On! - 12/21

Each Saturday  Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events from our week. Looking for small celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with us.

This week I am celebrating the start of my Christmas break.  I absolutely love teaching, but I love my breaks!  A time to relax, restore, and rejuvenate.  

I celebrate taking a break from my responsibilities at school so that I can enjoy time with my family, especially my children.  They are the age where they usually just want food and money, but I am ready to spend some quality time with them.  My son asked me the other day if we could make Christmas sugar cookies...his favorite!  I said absolutely, thrilled that he still wanted to do this with me.  

I celebrate taking a break from setting the alarm so that I can stay up late reading, sleep in because I "just had to finish that book" and wearing my pajamas for as long as I want.  I have many books to read and will certainly find some to read on the Winter Pop-up Library.  
Check it out - free ebooks from December 21 - January 5!

I hope each of you have a great break and find many reasons to celebrate!

Now, I am off to continue shopping!


  1. I love having a break, too, for many of the same reasons. I will be enjoying quality time with my family and reading. What are you reading?

  2. It's great to be able to take a break and get refreshed for the next semester. Thanks for the link to the library, That's cool!

  3. I love the idea of having the chance to "just finish the book" and then sleeping in the next morning. I hope to do some of that as well. I am off to watch a movie online now that my visitors succumbed to the force of jet-lag (and are sleeping now). Happy relaxing!

  4. I feel exactly as you do, Leigh Anne - so glad that our break is finally here! Enjoy the holidays!

  5. Breaks are essential for staying healthy (physically, emotionally, mentally.) Enjoy the time with your family!

  6. As I read this at almost noon, still in my jammies, I can totally relate to your reasons to celebrate vacations. I hope you have a great one!

  7. I'm with you on the PJ's and time to read!
