I launched my very first “Hello World” post a year ago this month. And I’m going to celebrate with 30 days of quiet. (Your world would not fall apart if I didn’t mention this fact to you, but I thought I would share it anyway.)

I had no idea that my first year would hold so much: excitement, vulnerability, praise, misunderstanding, delight, discouragement, humor, and insecurity. It’s been quite the ride.

I plan to spend the month

  • spring cleaning my house
  • sewing new dresses
  • reading good books
  • starting seedlings
  • scrapbooking Kelly’s baby pictures
  • and thinking about life.

I will receive any comments you post via email as usual, but I will not be posting or updating my blog.

Happy March!

Have a great recess. The dust will probably have settled by the time you get back.

My brain is left breathless from reading over that list! HOW do you manage to get so much done? It doesn’t matter but wow! I’m impressed none the less.

I’ll miss your posts, but I’m going to be offline for part of this month as well.

I can’t believe it has only been a year! Seems much longer.

Hope you get many things done this month!

I’ve been taking an unintentional break since September but would like to start up again soon – my daughter just got engaged (EEKKK – fun!). Enjoy your time off, and have fun doing some projects that you may have been putting off. If you’re like me though, almost everything I do, I think, ‘This would make a good post’. HAHA Enjoy ~

Hmm. I’m missing my favorite blogger. Is she missing me yet?

Is the month over yet?
You would choose the seemingly longest month of the year.
I will continue waiting…and hope you are enjoying the break and accomplishing what you set out to do.

Just what I thought! Then I saw that technically, it hasn’t been 30 days yet. I am looking forward to reading your posts again.
