Spring Is In the Air

I woke up yesterday morning feeling antsy, and not wanting to resume my normal  breakfast maker/shoe and jacket finder/carpool driver/Mom-of-all-trades routine, trying to squeeze in some writing in between it all. I realized that one year ago this week my husband and I were on spring break and traveling to Boston to explore New England, walk the Freedom Trail, and fulfill my husband’s childhood dream of watching the Red Sox play at Fenway Park.

On this trip I also discovered the best journal/notebooks ever–and made my husband walk an hour in the rain for a second trip to the bookstore because I decided I didn’t buy enough of them the first time. I also took tons of notes on my secret writing project that shall not be named.

I’m looking forward to spring break again this year, even though we don’t have something as exciting as a trip to Boston planned. What about you? Are you itching for spring break, or just a vacation in general? What do you have planned?

  1. I loved that trip. We had so much fun. Seeing just that one picture brings back so many fond memories.

  2. I enjoyed your Boston trip vicariously! No trips on our spring break this year but looking forward to FINALLY getting our garage organized after moving 2 years ago and doing some things around the house and yard so that when we do get to go on vacation, we will have all the work done!

  3. Would love to know/see what kind of journals you like – am a complete junkie myself, always searching for good ones. For to-do lists, the quattro ones are awesome – work great with needle tip pens.

    Also – did you see the recent articles on Amanda Hocking – an author that has done exceptionally well with her teeny books for Kindle?

      Thanks for stopping by! I love the moleskin journals. Specifically, I use the hardbacked, lined, folio ones for my writing journals and the smaller ones I carry around in my purse if i get some extra writing time while I’m out and about.

      I heard about Amanda Hocking. Over the weekend I learned she signed with a big publisher for about $2M. Crazy the way life works. I’ve visited her website, her books seem really interesting and she has great covers.

      I’m always looking for good to-do list journals, so I’ll have to check out the quattro, thanks!

  4. I love going into Boston. Probably more nostalgic than anything but I love the history. Thanks for your nice comment!
