A Blogging Break

Hello reader friends.

Due to a combination of circumstances involving work, finances, health, and a much-needed vacation, I’ve decided to act like France and take a holiday from blogging for the entire month of August. I need to rest and take care of some personal issues so that I can continue writing this blog with the energy and enthusiasm I started with. It’s too important to me to give up entirely, so I hope I won’t lose any readers, but I need to rethink the direction and come back to it with a fresh perspective.

Look for me right after the Labor Day holiday, when I’ll be back from hiatus refreshed and rejuvenated, with more Thrifty Threads, Meatless Monday, CSA delivery, and Food Waste Friday posts, along with some new twists on the topics of non-consumerism and simple living. I've got so many posts in the works that I'm anxious to delve into. I’ll miss you, and I look forward to getting back to the conversation next month, when we’re all in more of a back-to-school mood.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. Don’t forget to take a nap in a hammock, eat an ice cream cone, sleep under the stars, play in the sprinklers, or stay outside until the sun goes down.

See you in September…

I took a break too and let my friend write some posts. If I feel like I HAVE to write, it takes the joy out of it for me. I only wanna read if you wanna write. Have a nice break! I will be here when you get back.

Rest well! I will miss your insightful posts, but a break is much deserved,I think! Having only blogged half a year, I can say it does take time to do it well (which is rare for me!) Best, best!

Hi Angela,

Enjoy your break! Love your blog.

I've come back to blogging after a little sabbatical so. It works wonders!

Thanks everybody! I'll be back this Thursday with a special Thrifty Threads (Sept.2nd) and then on the Tuesday after Labor Day (Sept.7th) I'll get back to business. Can't wait to get back in the conversation, I've missed you all! Looking forward to it!!
