Writers: Make Time For You!

IMG_8609This was my view over the weekend as I walked along the beach with two of my best friends. We’ve been talking about a girls weekend away since our kids were babies. Our oldest are all in middle school, so it was about time! We relaxed, we laughed, we shopped, we read, I wrote. It was just enough time to clear our minds and take a deep breath before our families missed us too much and we had to get back. 🙂

In the town of Bethany, Delaware, the adorableIMG_8613
bookstore Bethany Beach Books was open for business and we browsed for a good hour. Check-out the great sign they had set-up as we walked in the front door. I bought each of my kids a new book and picked up a copy of Pete the Cat and the New Guy for myself. As a special education teacher, I loved the recurring message, “Don’t be sad, don’t be blue! There is something everyone can do!”





Another great quote that was in the store. This one was on the wall behind the register.

It was a much needed weekend away. Sometimes we need to slow down and enjoy the little moments. It will make us better writers, friends and people.
