{ ..... }


You might have noticed my blogging has all but stopped the last couple of weeks. I have been wanting to blog, but honestly have been prioritizing other things in my life. So, I have decided, with a lot of reluctance, to take a little "bloggy break" for about a month, maybe a little longer. Just gonna simplify my life a little, s l o w d o w n, enjoy my kids, exercise more, learn to knit {started that today and it's fantastic} and make some other little happy changes.

So for now I will just plan to check in with you through your blogs now and then. Thanks for all the comments, emails and love you've given me, it's been so inspirational.


Love,
Kari

SOOOO nice to hear more and more saying they crave more simplicity, more "time with the family" in their lives.... after all, as much as we out here in blog land love you, your family is what really, really matters. :)

Go -- enjoy them! :)

We won't forget you and we promise to give you a nudge when we start really missing you! :)

XOXO

It is good to do that, take a break, slow down, simplify, enjoy your treasures(children). I'm glad to hear you are!

I will have to try that easy cherry cake! But will have to re-name it...something like 'cherry cottage cake'?

I just came across your blog today; my timing seems to be off! My son starts high school at the end of this month and my daughter is a middle-schooler. All times as a parent seem to busy times! Enjoy it all because it does go by quickly.

Aimee said...

I can't wait 'till you start posting again. I bet you'll have a lot to share with all of us!

If you get a chance, come by my Blog and say hi. I just put up a post on the San Francisco Gift Show where my Pillows were featured.
Have a great day,
Aimee

hello... hapi blogging... have a nice day! just visiting here....

Marie said...

Hello Kari - okay, I'm doing my morning visits around my favorite blogs this morning and in cases you read this, I always stop by yours to see if you've posted something new. But every time I see that you haven't, it makes me smile because I know you are having some beautiful time with your family and you have stayed true to your desire to slow down. I'm imagining you having lots of play time with your kids, that you're 10 lbs lighter from all the exercising, and that you've knitted an afghan by now. Well...maybe not all of those things, but I'm praying you've had a Blessed couple of months!

Smiles,
Marie
