Personal Update: Taking a Blogging Break

blogging break

Hi everyone,

I hope all of you are having a fantastic week! I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m taking a bit of a blogging break. I’ve mentioned a couple of times in a few random blog posts that my husband and I were taking a cruise this month to celebrate our anniversary that was April 4th, and we actually left yesterday for Charleston, SC, my favorite city in the United States and in the morning we’ll be sailing from there for an 11 day Caribbean cruise to St. Thomas, Aruba, Bonaire, Grand Turk, and Half Moon Cay! I’m more than a little excited since my husband and I’ve never been on a cruise together in the 25 years that we’ve been a couple–he’s never been on a cruise at all, so this is extra exciting for him (as long as he doesn’t get seasick, but I’ve packed the Dramamine in case 😉 )!

Anyway, we’ll be back in NC the end of the month,  but May is going to be really busy too, so I’m not sure how much blogging I’ll get done! It’s the end of the semester, which is always crazy and my son is graduating from high school in a couple of weeks…really crazy and busy! But I’ll have scheduled reviews, etc for May, so I’ll be around just not sure yet how much.

However, the one year anniversary of my blog is coming up May 6th, so I definitely don’t want to miss that! AND I will be hosting a couple of giveaways to celebrate the big occasion, but there will be more details about that later (as soon as I figure them out, lol! But the giveaways will be open to both US and International entries).

Well, I am off to get ready to spend the next 11 days enjoying the sun, gorgeous beaches, sand, fruity drinks, and some much-needed rest, relaxation, and alone time with my handsome hubby!
This will be me next week…


Enjoy you’re week! I’ll blog hop and talk to everyone when I get back although I may or may not be on Twitter the rest of the month depending on my wi-fi! 🙂 Have a great April!!!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely go one day! I’ve been on a 3 day in the Mediterranean, so this is a 1st time in the Caribbean but I thoroughly enjoyed my 1st cruise. My husband wants to do an Alaskan cruise next…not sure about that! Too cold!


    1. Thanks!! will!! I need to answer you back…things got insane last week (drama that I don’t know where to begin), but yes, that Tues afternoon definitely works unless you’ve planned something (I can even let you sit in on the lecture if you want…very informal lectures with the other 2 combined profs)! I’ll DM you my cell # and personal and work email since I never remember to check my blog email. I’ll be checking both the next 2 weeks as long as wifi isn’t spotty. London!!! 🙂

      1. You’re right!! My husband won’t unless I spray him down, but I’ll definitely use it! I’ve had 2 places removed that we’re precancerous on my back and shoulder, so I try to be careful. Doesn’t mean I won’t burn though but I hope not, ugh! Vacation ruined right there!


  1. Just left a big comment to you on my birthday wish list post so I won’t waste your lovely holiday time too much here! 😂 Just to say, have a fantastic time and can’t wait to see pics! Hope hubby is doing alright with the sickness? 😱🤢 xx

    1. Thank you!! I had a fabulous time! We got back on Sunday, but I wish we had stayed, lol. Things were a more than crazy when we got back, so I’m not sure how much blogging I’ll be doing for a while, but I will try (I’m still on a semi-hiatus). I’ll message you this week with all the gory details, and I just want to talk to you! Miss you!! ❤
