I wanted to share a Christmas poem, but the words just weren’t flowing. So, you won’t read anything fancy today, only that I’m taking a breather from blogging for the holidays and this will be my last post until I return sometime in January. As we all know, breaks are necessary so that we can recharge our minds, bodies, and spirits. But before I go, I want to thank you all for your continued support! It has been wonderful to meet and get to know so many talented artists in this virtual community.
On that note, I wish you all a holiday filled with Peace, Joy, and Love, everything we’ve heard before but all we truly need. ❤️
Sending holiday hugs, stay safe, be well, and I’ll see you in 2022!
Cheers, Lauren ❤️🎄❤️

But please. Lauren, please save my post from 24th December because this is such a spirit lifting story that no one should miss.
Thanks, Joanna, and I will! 🙂 💕
Happy holidays, my dearest Lauren! Enjoy the days and be back refreshed in every way.
Copper is just precious under the Christmas tree!
Many hugs and best wishes to you and your loved ones and a special kiss to Copper from me …and Hera too!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Thanks so much, Marina, and I will. I can feel the need, so I have to listen…and I got lucky with the photo of Copper. Normally, he is too bouncy to sit still, but he was tired and “stayed.” 🙂 I love it, too. Hugs and best wishes to you, your family, and beautiful Hera! See you in the new year! ❤️❄️❤️
I know what you mean! Many hugs back! See you in the new year!!! ❤🧡🌟🧡❤
Have a Merry Christmas.
Thanks so much, John! Have a wonderful holiday!
You are welcome so much.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Lauren. Enjoy your break.
Thanks, John! I feel the need. 🙂 Enjoy your holiday with your family!
We will. 😁
Wow, Copper is gorgeous! What a great photo.😊
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas🎄🎄 and a wonderful New Year , Lauren. All the best to you and your family.
Aww, thank you, Geraldine. I caught Copper at a good time when he was tired and not so bouncy. 🙂 Wishing you the same and see you in 2022! It’s great to have you back, also. 💗
Merry Christmas Lauren to you and yours!
Thank you, Nico! Blessings to you and your family! 🥰
Merry Christmas, Lauren!
Thank you, Jill! Enjoy your holiday! 💗
Have a wonderfully Merry Christmas, Lauren, and I hope you have a peaceful joyous break with those you love. Happy 2022!
Thanks for your lovely wishes, Diana. I’m replying to comments but going off grid tomorrow. I feel like I’ve hit a brick wall with writing inspiration also, so maybe a break will help. 🙂
Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday, too. ❤️
Enjoy the break and don’t fret over the brick wall. I’m sure you just need some time to chill. Hugs.
That’s exactly what I’m not doing, fretting over the brick wall. 🙂 Thanks, Diana! I hope you get some time to chill, too. Cheers, my friend, and hugs to you!
Lauren, wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas filled with love, light and laughter! Enjoy the cookies, they look so delicious and festive! 😀❤️
Thanks for your wonderful wishes, Annika, and the cookies are sinfully delicious. 🙂 I hope your holiday is filled with all the same. 🙂 ❤️🎄
Lauren, I do wish you a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. You do right,
we all need breaks at times. And a very happy New Year too.
Miriam, thank you for your lovely comment and your understanding about the need for a break. I hope this break brings new writing inspiration. 🙂
I wish you a joy filled holiday, too. Sending hugs! xo
Beautiful Lauren. We all need a break from routine and many take breaks around this time. Me, I’m around, but saving my break for when I fly away to Mexico for part of the winter. God willing planes will still fly out in this virus world. I wish you and yours a beautiful Christmas. Hugs ❤ xx
Thanks, Debby, and I hope you get that plane trip to Mexico. You deserve a beautiful getaway. With the two new variants, this pandemic isn’t going anywhere. But my fingers are crossed for you. Thanks for your holiday wishes and enjoy your girl’s night, too! See you next year! Hugs! 💗
Yes Lauren! Happy New Year to you! ❤
I will be taking my break from blogging in January. Have a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year 2022.
Thanks for your wishes, Ian, and enjoy your break, too. I’ll see you in February! 🙂
Lovely Lauren, you are wise to listen to yourself. Much love to you all and loving Christmas wishes. i love your biscuits. ❤ Always and enjoy your breather. We are doing the same. ❤ xXx ❤ ❤
Thanks for your beautiful words, Jane, and enjoy your Christmas and break, too. I know when it’s time for me…
Wishing you and Tim a blessed holiday together. Sending many hugs and much love, dear friend. xoxoxoxo
❤ xXx ❤ ❤
P.S. I wish I could share the cookies with you. 🙂 🥰❤️🎄
Oh, what a wonderful natter we would have over coffee and your delicious cookies. One day, my lovely, one day. We’re coming over to Yosemite Park for the railway when the world settles down. ❤ xXx ❤
I know it would be wonderful. Yosemite is about a 4 hour drive from me. I probably wouldn’t drive it myself, but maybe we could work something out. We’re also about a half hour from San Francisco. When the world settles is right. I would love to visit you, too, so we shall see what the future brings. Until then, I love our connection here and on fb. Hugs, my friend. 💗❄️
Ohh, Lauren, we are planning to fly into San Francisco. Exciting. ❤ So much to look forward too and it would be lovely to see you here too. ❤ ❤ ❤
Well, that would be perfect and awesome if we could meet, in your neck of the woods or in ours! Yes, so much to look forward to! Enjoy your holidays and stay well, both of you! ❤️❤️
❤ ❤ ❤
Merry Christmas, Lauren, and enjoy your break!
(Those are the kind of Christmas cookies I used to bake.)
Thanks very much, Binky, and I will. I want to acknowledge comments, though, which I do appreciate. The cookies are good and they’re fun to make for the season. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New year!
Merry Christmas to you and to your family, Lauren. Copper is awesome and I loved your cookies. Happy Holidays see you soon. A lovely post.
Thanks so much, Kamal, and Copper thanks you too with lots of slobbery kisses. Hope you don’t mind. 🙂 I’m glad you liked the cookies, too. Wishing you a wonderful holiday and see you in the new near. 💕
Welcome always dear Lauren and not at all I too have a golden retriever and her name is Amber so I am used to her slobbery kisses. See you soon. All the best for the coming year 💕💕💕😊😊😊😊
Thanks again, Mark! 😁
Happy christmas Lauren. Have a good break xx
Thanks, Alison, I will, and I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday, too. ❤️

The time for celebration and gathering is about to begin. Prepare yourself to embrace the best of this year. Wish you a Merry Christmas!

Hi Lauren – I also took a break and now I’m back – I hope you are enjoying the holiday with your family!
Thanks for stopping by, Barbara. The holidays have been relaxing and quiet, and the break continues. 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too.

Happy holidays, Lauren!
Our creativity comes in ebbs and flows. It is important to allow our minds and hearts a rest, at times. I look forward to your future writings and sending you many blessings.
Hi Lisa, thanks for your comment! I’m still on break from all social media, but surprisingly, I’ve found new writing inspiration. I just needed a breather, and I know you understand. And I wanted to acknowledge your kindness. So, I hope you had a wonderful holiday and wish you a bright new 2022! See you later! ❤️❄️
I hope you’re having a wonderful break, Lauren! I know I did when I took a break in November, then the Christmas week! Do come back to share with us your inspiration. Have a wonderful New Year of 2022! ❤
Hi Miriam, thank you for stopping by. I am enjoying my break and probably will take this month off, working on other things for the new year. But I appreciate your kind comment and hope your year is starting off on a positive note. Happy 2022! 💕
That’s wonderful, Lauren, for taking a month off! That’s the way to get something done. It’s easy to spend all day on the blog. Have a blessed 2022! 😍
Hope you had a good, safe and peaceful break Lauren. Much love to you and yours! ❤️
Hi Marie, I did have a wonderful break that was greatly needed. Thank you! But I’m happy to be back in this community and look forward to reading all the wonderful posts again. Hope you’re doing well and sending love and hugs to you, dear friend. 💕
