Here are some photos from a day trip I took with two of my beautiful friends to Sedona! So much fun. :) I love little weekend adventures! It was an added bonus that it snowed when we were there. There’s nothing like white snow on red rocks.

This past weekend I got to cross another goal off of mylist! I went a whole 24 hours with no phone and 48 hours with no Internet…and I loved it. It was so much harder than I expected it would be because I unfortunately hadn’t spent a day without my phone since 2008 I think. I turned off my computer on Friday evening and set out to take my first weekend off since I started my business a few years ago! It was supposed to be really relaxing, but it turned into a crazy, packed weekend full of activities, but I loved it all the same! I’m definitely going to force myself to take breaks more often because my productivity this morning was out the roof after two days of no business work. I also think it’s good for the soul. :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I made Easter cake pops on Saturday, they turned out to be delicious!
One of my favorite things to do in my free time has always been reading. It’s been almost a lifetime obsession you could say ;) From the minute I learned how, I’ve been completely hooked and it’s my favorite way to relax and escape. I could possibly be described as a workaholic and someone who isn’t good at relaxing, but once I get a good book in hand…it’s like a drug! I just can’t stop reading! I never thought I’d say this either, but since I bought my iPad in early 2010, I have read way too many books on it. I’m in love. I really like the paper feel of a book and I fear that one day they will be obsolete and my children won’t know what a real book is like…but the iPad is so convenient to read on! I carry about 80 books around with me on it and it takes up so little space. I feel like a traitor!
I know that I read more than 30 books last year, but here are some of the ones that stood out in my memory for some reason or another. Have you read any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of them! I probably shouldn’t admit that a few of these books have been read way more than 1 or 2 times…more like six. ;)
As one of the 500 social network websites I’m on, Goodreads is one of my favorites for keeping track of books, reviews, etc.! I’d love to connect with you on there if you share the love of reading!
