the blessings of random acts

I took the day off today because I wanted to. I wanted to share time with someone and not have to wait for the weekend to do it. The simple pleasures were enacted and exacted and the weather; not to hot or cold; added another wonderful component to it all.

For those of you who haven't used all your vacation or leave time, please take some time off to kick back and enjoy. You don't always need a plan or something to do; just take some time for yourself or to spend with someone special.

I wish I could tell you how wonderful this day has been and have you see the smile that still sitting on my face. I'm thankful for days like this when I can give thanks and enjoy nature in its infinite splendor.

Oh, and Maxwell's new CD on repeat...oh my!

Love to live; live to love! (I damn sure am!!!)

Oh Lord, chile. You got me with "Maxwell's CD on repeat." LMAO

I am so happy that you had a beautiful day, making use of your vacation time without rhyme or reason - but just because YOU WANTED AND NEEDED THE TIME OFF.

So many people allow their jobs/bosses to rob them of good mental and physical health.

::high five::

Love you, Blu!

Not only have I had the new Maxwell CD on repeat, but his enitre musical catalogue. Damn, that is one smooth, intense, and sexy man and his songs just spend me.

That aside, I did something I wanted and needed for MYSELF and it was so intense, amazing, and very worthwhile. We should all do this and not allow our jobs to take such precedence to living.

Love you too girl.

Maxwell is even more gorgeous since he cut his hair, and I do agree that taking time off for self does feel good. I do that every now and then because my job acts like they are in another world and can't do anything without me so I prove them wrong and plan "me" days. When I tell them I'm taking off, they ask me if I will check my e-mail from home, I tell them no and for them not to call my house either.

I'm feelin' you!

My hubby had off Monday and Tuesday and we went out to breakfast both days together while our daughter was at VBS for the morning.

@Queen - Yes, Maxwell is even more good looking than before and I get to sit in the 6th row next Friday when he comes to my area...Swoon! Good for you on taking time out for YOU and not allowing work to filter its way in.

@Believer - that's awesome. I saw a couple last Friday and their body language and love for each other was so beautiful that I had to go over an compliment them on it. I hope you and hubby continue to share these tender moments.

love to live; live to love!

Umm, did I just read that Maxwell is coming to your town. Oh snap! Oh snap again! Now that would definitely be worth taking off for. All I ask is that you post Maxwell on your blog or something. Let him be totally naked and throwing a kiss...Oh my, whoa..let me jump back to reality and stop writing stuff that I'm thinking.

@Queen Bee - girl, you are off the freakin hook, but I love it. I will post as many pix as I can take without having Security run up on me. I'll dedicate the post to you.

love to live; live to love!
