The-Leisure-Link

After a two-month hiatus, my link party, The Leisure Link re-opens on October 1st.

I am so excited to host this link-up and I hope that you will join me and other bloggers who value leisure, recreation, the outdoors, hobbies and all things fun!

“Leisure” is difficult to define, in fact, definitions differ among nearly everyone. What we can all agree on, is that, leisure is a choice and something that brings you joy. Leisure can be measured as unobligated time, or simply described as a state of mind.

Here is the link to my Leisure Link pagefor more information. Watch for a post early Thursday morning!

I can’t wait to see what you will link up! Please share this post on your social media and please reblog!
