A Blogging Breather

Dear Friends,

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. ❤️

Copper wishes you a Merry Christmas, too, and he hopes you get
lots of treats
and slobbery kisses!
Speaking of treats, here is a small sample of my Christmas cookies that I bake each year.

Sending holiday hugs, stay safe, be well, and I’ll see you in 2022!
Cheers, Lauren
❤️🎄❤️

  1. 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

    1. 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! ❤️❄️❤️

    1. 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. 💗

    1. 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. ❤️

      1. 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!

    1. 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

  2. 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

    1. 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! 💗

    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 ❤ ❤

    1. 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

        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 ❤

      2. 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. ❤ ❤ ❤

      4. 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! ❤️❤️

    1. 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!

    1. 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. 💕

      1. 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 💕💕💕😊😊😊😊

      Happy New Year! ❤️

    1. 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! ❤️❄️
