Leave of Absence

I am sure you all didn’t really need this post to realize that I am taking a leave of absence from the blog scene… but I thought I would make it all “official.” I have sat down to write a “good-bye” to blogging post a couple times but I just cannot bring myself to go through with it - which tells me that I am not ready to quit blogging but the fact that I cannot get my act together lately tells me that I should. Rather than being a “Debbie-downer” and listing off a depressing reasons of why I need a blogging break – I’m going to tell you a few of things I am going to do in my much needed break!

1. Love on my kiddos! They are only going to be small for so long and I don’t want to miss anything!
2. Spend quality time with my husband
3. Render more service to others.
4. Create just for me!
5. Organize my Life
6. Lose some much needed “baby fat!”
7. Invite the Spirit into my home
8. Work on strengthening other talents
9. Develop a better Lifestyle
10. Find the Joy in everyday!

I hope you don’t delete me! I will be back in a little while refreshed and ready to go again!

I need to do #6. And my baby is almost 20 months. Yikes. Love the list. Those are all important things I am trying to balance, and juggle with every other commitment I have taken on. It is pretty hard to juggle everything and not give yourself a headache every day.
Good luck, enjoy the break. I know for one that I will be here when you come back. :)

I know just how you feel. Sometimes it's so hard balancing everything. I hope you take all the time you need and enjoy it with no guilt. We'll still be here when you get back. :)

I just did the exact same thing. It was hard....I started my farewell so many times. Yet couldn't. Then with a few more tender tugs at my heart I realized that for everything there is a time and a season. There are moments with my family that I was either missing, taking for granted, or lacking the energy of heart and mind to create. I'm so proud of you for following your heart! Hope you find the time and energy to cherish....well, what matters most.

I would never delete you! I am proud of you for taking care of yourself and doing what you need to do. You are a great mom and we need to hang out more!

I've been meaning to come over and leave a note for a few weeks! I totally get how you feel. Sometimes I wonder why I even blog, but then I find myself enjoying it at times too. I'll always be here to read when you share stuff! I'm so grateful that I met you through blogging! You are amazing! :)
