Hello August

posted on: August 01, 2011

Our new baby boy, Dexter.

I'm forcing myself to take a break this month (inspired by Katrina!). This was a very hard decision for me to make because blogging has become such a normal activity in my life. I thought I would use this month to soak up the last of summer...spend my days lounging on the beach and hiking in the mountains, have dinner with friends on a regular basis, enjoy more time in the kitchen, in the yoga studio, in caf├ęs....spend less time in front of the computer and more time being present. I'm not going to ditch out completely though! I'll be posting textless entries with personal photographs I snap this month and you can click on the images for more info. Catch me on Twitter while I'm away from the blog as well!

Have an amazing August my lovely readers! I am so thankful for you and your constant support and encouragement. I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for you. I'll be seeing you soon...-J.

  18. Hey! It's been a while since I got the chance to pop by. Hope you thoroughly enjoy your time off. I think August should be a compulsory full month off worldwide. It's gotten to that time of the year where I've had enough of the year and just need to reboot. Hopefully this weekend does just that.

  20. Hooray for breaks! I think that's an excellent idea. It's funny though, because I just clicked on 4 blogs who were taking an extended hiatus, a short break or a permanent break. Weird. Anyhoodle, ENJOY YOURSELF!
