Spring Break

Posted in Personal Reflections | 11 Comments »


Welcome back from spring break!

I spent my spring break just staying home and relaxing.  I was happy to sleep in, cuddle up with my cat, and watch some movies and television.  I also got to attend my cousin’s wedding.  I wish the weather was a bit nicer, but I enjoyed the week anyway.

How was your spring break?  What did you do?  Tell us all about the fun and exciting things you did!
