If you know me at all, you know that I’m a BIG believer in the “mommy break.” I think it’s super important to mommy’s sanity to have a break every once in a while, whether it’s a trip away from kids or even just the occasional pedicure with friends (and WITHOUT kids.)

It’s important that our kids see us take care of ourselves too!

Well, I had this grand blog post ready to go today, only needed to add some pictures, but the day got away with me and now, honestly, I’m exhausted (it was “fall” cleaning day in the Phillips’ household.)

AND… I have a goal of getting edits done on my next book by this weekend at the latest.

Suffice to say, I need every moment I can get, so I’m envoking a “blogging break” for the week.

We’ll see you back on Monday with some fun updates and HOPEFULLY a celebration of a turned in manuscript to my agent!

Discussion: How often do you allow yourself to take a break?
