A Letter to Spring Break

Dear Spring Break,
I'm so excited that you are arriving today. I've been waiting and waiting for you! Now that you're here, I don't even know what to do first. Here are some must do's on my list: I want to go and see at least two movies! I want to read a couple of really good books! Spending time with my friends each day will be a goal too! Hopefully, the weather will be warm so I can get outside for long walks with Bella too. It all won't be fun and games, though. I understand.

Grading must be completed along with a couple of other projects for school. I have to clean out my garage along with other house projects. These may not be fun, but I will feel good when it's all finished.

Spring Break, I will make sure to spend time each day being productive, as well as having fun. Remind me that it's ok to just be during this time. Remind me that each moment I spend is precious. Thank you for the rescue! It's been a busy school year and a break will do me good.

Love you,

March is the Slice of Life Challenge.
I'll be sharing a post each day in the month of March.
Please join me at Two Writing Teachers to read more slices!


  1. Spring break... ahhh... we still have a couple of weeks before I can write that letter. I love the playfulness of your letter. You have some important and serious remingers though, as well.

  2. I love your letter format and am pondering to whom I might write. Spring break is sadly weeks away and those weeks are doozies! I'll tuck this idea away for a slice later this month. Enjoy your break and have fun, Michelle!

  3. I love your letter. I hope you reach your goal of being productive but also having fun!

  4. Your list of must dos in your first paragraph made me smile. I thought, way to go, Michelle, make the joy and self-care a must. I understand that some not so fun things have to be include, I hope you can keep them minimal. Enjoy your spring break!

  5. My spring break is here, too. I must write a letter like this. I don't want to look up in a week and wonder where did the time go. I am glad you decided you need some time to just be. That is so important!

  6. My break is not for two weeks. I started my must do and want to do list. Must do is winning. Mark

  7. Maybe I need to write a goodbye letter! I hope you find time for many wonderful things this week. I have two more days left.


Please share your thoughts. I love comments!
