Hello Relaxation

Thursday, March 17, 2011

To say this week has been wonderful, well, that would be totally understated — it's been uh-ma-zing!  A few of you know why, but the best part is this week isn't over yet.  As a matter of fact, I think I could very well get use to every day being like this week. 

After leaving work yesterday, I sad goodbye to the pile of work on my desk and hello to relaxation.  I had planned to be off three days this week, but I couldn't stand to have the majority of it waiting on me when I return next week.  So, I went in yesterday and got a good bit finished up to enjoy my few days off.  

The blog will be on vacation, too.  I promise to tell you all about it when we return, but until then — the computer will be turned off.  The weather promises to be delightful and we plan to enjoy every minute of it.  We have a lot planned over the next four days, but we are looking forward to enjoying it together.  

Hope y'all are enjoying this beautiful St. Patricks Day.  And if you feel like you need something sweet today, try these.  I didn't make them this year (sorry Abby), but I did last year and they are to die for!
