I’m leaving blogland for awhile (again), and I’m not sure how long I’ll be gone. My muse just left for her Christmas vacation, so the timing works out fine. 🙂
Anyway, I wish you all a peaceful, joyous, and safe time during the holidays
and a very Happy New Year!
Sending hugs, love and blessings,

I hope the break from blogging and the NY are wonderful for you Lauren. Take care and see you when we see you. You will be missed.
Thanks, Geraldine! I can’t let all these comments go unnoticed, but I’ll probably return in the new year. Right now, I’m just not in the mood for writing; hopefully, I’ll feel like it next year, though. I wish you a blessed Christmas and New Year, too, and am sending many hugs!
All the best to You, Lauren and to Yours
Thanks so much, John, and I wish you happy times during the holidays! Much love back!
Lauren, you will be missed, but I think we all need a hiatus now and again. Best wishes for a restful time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Big hugs.
Thanks so much, Michelle! I wanted to reply, even though I’m on a break. It’s been nice, but hopefully, I’ll have some new material to return with in the new year. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, too! Big hugs back to you, my friend. ♥

It’s been great, so far, Jean, thank you, and wishing you a blessed holiday! xo
That’s great to hear. Long may it continue. Thanks for your good wishes. jxx
Travel well till we meet once more.
I will, thanks, Ben, and you, too! 🙂
Couldn’t stay away, eh? 😛
Well, I wanted to acknowledge the many wonderful comments, but maybe that’s silly. 🙂 I’m not blogging yet, though. My muse has left the building. Happy Holidays, Ben!
You too, Lauren.
Just pulling your leg. I hope you know that idiom in the US; otherwise it’s internet search time, 🙂
Of course I know it! 😃 Okay, take care and see you next year!
Have a good break, and a Merry Christmas, Lauren.
Thanks, Binky, it’s been nice so far, but I hope to see you next year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
And the very same to you Lauren. I hope to engage more in the new year. 2015 was hugely demanding for me. Take good care.
Hugs and best wishes.
Thanks, Don, and I know the feeling of a demanding year. See you in 2016 and wishing you a blessed holiday, too! Hugs back!
All the best Lauren.
I am leaving for Chile South America on the 20th December and returning late February.
I will take this moment to wish you a Beautiful Christmas, and a wonderful New Year.
Thanks, Ian, I just wanted to wish you a wonderful and safe trip, too! See you next year!
I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas Lauren, and a bright New Year ahead! ❄️ ❄️ ⛄️ 🙂

I’m still on a break, but I wanted to reply to your comment…It’s so nice to see you again and I wish you all the same. My family has been dealing with some “not so good” news from before Christmas, but life goes on and we’re okay. Take care of you and your handsome son! Hugs and blessings!

Hi Ben, thanks so much for thinking of me and sorry for the late reply, but I’m just really shying away from blogging, and honestly, not sure if I’ll return again…I would’ve taken this challenge had I been actively blogging, so thanks again. I hope all is well with you in this new year, too! Take care! L 🙂
No worries. Whether we meet again or not may I wish you all the best. Travel peacefully and with worthy companions. 🙂
Thanks so much, Ben, I appreciate that and wish you the same…
Thank you. 🙂
Much Joy and Love!
Thanks, Stefan! Hope all is well and Happy New Year! I’m still on break. 🙂 Much love back to you!
Just so you know that you and your family are still within my thoughts Lauren.. Have a wonderful February xxx Love Sue ❤
Aww, thanks so much, Sue! I’m still on break and unless I change my mind, I’m leaning on not returning. I think maybe my “blogging career” is coming to an end. But I’m really not sure, just taking life one day at a time, letting things happen on their own. I haven’t written any poetry and I’m not sure if I remember how. lol How are you doing? I miss you, but I hope life is treating you well and that your new year is starting off on a positive note, too. Sending much love and many hugs, my friend. Thanks again for your message…xoxo
I am well Lauren, good to know all is well with you.. Miss you too… Several of my Blogging friends have stopped their blogs recently.. I almost did too.. but I shall be here a little while longer. 🙂 You have to do what feels right to you Lauren.. and One day at a time sounds right .. Take care of you and your beautiful daughter and family.. Always much love is being sent.. Hugs.. Sue xxx
Thanks, Sue! It is kind of surreal because we all feel like a family here in blogland…but yes, one day at a time, and I’m always here via email, too. 🙂 Big hugs! ♥ ♥ xo
🙂 and I may drop you a line from time to time also.. xxx Hugs x
Hope you enjoying your break. Pray you had good Christmas. God Bless
I’m catching up on comments, so thank you for your kind words and prayers. I hope you’re doing okay. I haven’t kept up with other blogs, so I’ll have to check in at your site soon. Sending love and blessings…
I hope you are having a wonderful blogging break, dear Lauren, and that 2016 is full of love ♥
Thanks, Christy! It’s been a good break, but I’m keeping busy with homework now. 🙂 I know you were taking a break awhile ago, so I hope that was restful, too, and I wish you the same! Many hugs!
You are so sweet, Lauren. Yes, I’ve been taking time from the blog but do come back now and then with fresh ideas and inspiration. I am so glad we have kept in touch. Many hugs xx
Same to you Lauren. I hope ALL is well blessings…..
Thanks, my friend, and it’s nice to see you! All is well while almost getting ready for another Christmas! Wishing you a wonderful time this holiday season. This may sound odd, but I don’t think I ever found out your name. I always called you P.S. so if you’d like to divulge that, it would be wonderful. If not, that’s okay. Sending hugs!
Glad to hear all is well!! I too wish you and your family a joyous holiday season!! TY trying to get back in the swing of things here lol started another venture so that has me pretty busy. Lol someone yesterday said the same exact thing and YES I will divulge…Shamekia pronounced Sha me ka. Can’t believe after all these yrs I hadn’t shared that lol. Thank you for reaching back and you have a very very blessed day!!
Thanks SO much for divulging! I love calling people by their names, but I also don’t want to intrude if they want to stay private in blogland. 🙂 I think you know me: I take many breaks and a few months ago, I stated that I’m ending my blogging career. Then I came back. lol But I’m moving very slowly in reading blogs and haven’t written anything new. I’m taking a class each semester, so the h/w is keeping me busy, along with family, friends, and work. So one day at a time. Have a wonderful day and a very Happy Thanksgiving, Shamekia! ♥
Thanks Lauren blessings to you and the family and Happy Holidays!!
