I love to read…if you can’t tell from my constantly updating reading list and the little book reviews I like to share. I’m one of those people that enjoyed books and reading, even as a kid. But when life gets busy with work, blogging, and everything else, it’s one of the first things that I tend to stop doing. Isn’t that sad? Reading is one of my favorite forms of “me time,” but most of the time I don’t realize that I’m not making time for it.

Earlier this year, I decided to join a little online book club, and it made me realize how much I missed that “me time.” So I took a trip to the book store, picked up a couple of books from my reading list, and decided to make time for me–reading in one of the comfy chairs we have, most likely with a glass of Wente wine. Some days it’s a good way to unwind at the end of a long work day, and some days I stay up a little while after my husband goes to sleep to enjoy a couple more chapters and a chilled glass of white wine. All of this is to say that it is so important to have some time for yourself.

What’s your favorite form of “me time?”
