Feature & Follow Friday 05/17/2012

Welcome back to Feature & Follow Friday brought to you by Alison Can
Read and Parajunkee.

Let's get right to the question.

Summer break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?
My answer:

Well, since I live in Florida (Jacksonville Beach) where we are surrounded by 
wonderful beaches, that would be my choice. Then again, with me being out of
work for the past year or so, summer break is just another time for me to struggle 
until bills and my sanity until someone decides to hire me! I even thought about
driving to NY for the Memorial Day holiday just to get away from here!

  8. Sounds like a beautiful spot. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a beach person... too much sand getting into everything.

  13. Thanks for stopping by - happy to return the Linky follow.

    I must admit, I'm a bit envious - we don't have many decent beaches around here, and the ones we do have are really only useful for 2-3 months before it gets cold again.

  14. Thanks so much for stopping by, hon - delighted to return the follow.

    There's nothing quite like a beach for reading, is there? I know it sounds so cliche, but there's a reason for the cliche - we all want to do it. :)


  15. I have family in Jacksonville in Florida. I visited once. It really is beautiful.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Beautiful pictures!
    You are lucky to live so close to a beach! Im in Texas and the closest beach is 4 hours away!! :(
