Pausing and Breathing . . .

{Me and little Ollie having some rest together.}

I'm going on a self proclaimed computer hiatus. I'm feeling the need for a little less blogging and a little more sleeping. I want to spend more time with my family and less time pining for comments. I have things that need doing and the chime {or lack thereof} of mail in my inbox is preventing me from doing them. And I feel that I need to recharge my creative juices so I can be less critical of myself and the posts I've been putting out there for all to read. I'm going to take time off to be a better me in hopes that I can make life better for everyone involved in this little blog.

Hopefully I'll be back next week. Thanks for sticking with me.

Rest up and take your needed break. You look oh-so-lovely with the little Ollie asleep in your arms. It's a good look. Go enjoy it!

Breathe deeply and enjoy the loved ones that are physically with you. Your cyber family will be here waiting when you're feeling refreshed.

You're totally rockin' that scarf!

I hear you, lady. I think we've all been there. Enjoy your hiatus, and please realize that number of comments in NO WAY reflects the amazing quality of your posts!

Oh, and your scarf is great. I need to try tying mine like that.

I think I've been on a break for like 6 months now and I'm not sure I'll ever be fully back. While I LOVE reading about everyone, it gets so exhausting trying to keep up the writing and commenting. Take care of yourself and your family. We love you. You do such a great job of showing the beautiful, just make sure it doesn't become a chore.

Love you.

You will be missed, but take your time for you and your family. I undestand the need to sometimes step away from it all. Technology tends to take over peoples lives and it is good that you are giving yourself a break.

I must say, a few of the last posts really resonated with the way I felt when my baby was small. Relax and soak in the love around you. So, take a nap You deserve it! Love the blog- it'll still be here when you're refreshed.

Go ahead and take a break! You deserve it! But seriously your blog is great and completely addicting. I'm going to miss you, so make your hiatus as short as possible.

Dearest friend, These moments to reflect and sift through life to find the most valuable can be humbling , exhausting and beautiful all at once. Know that I'll be trying to do the same thing all the way out here in Utah. Love you.

Love your blog. I don't comment often, but I still stop by frequently. I pray that you receive the rest and peace that you need right now. It is exhausting be a good mama and you do a wonderful job. Blessings to you and your family.

Even though you need a break, you still seem like a real-life Supermom to me! Seriously. I often wonder how you do it all. You are one of the most capable women I know...a great example to me.
You look wonderful too. Don't you love those moments with baby?
