Heaven's Walk said...

Awwwww.....Anne!! I was missing you so much since I've been MIA after dropping my laptop 10 days ago. I was sooo looking forward to catching up with you, girlie! :) Oh well....I know that during my time away I did catch up on alot of things that I had been putting off for a while. I little crafting, a little reorganizing, a little note writing. So time away from blogland is a healthy thing for us all.

We'll MISS you alot - but enjoy your peaceful time away! ♥ We'll be waiting to see that sign!

xoxo laurie

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Take good care of yourself, Anne, while you're "breaking". We'll miss you, but no worries, we'll all be right here when you get back. :o)

SHERRY HART said...

Breaks are good. I think that creative people really need them to refresh because their brain is always spinning around with ideas! It gets tired in there :) Of course then their is all the outside stuff like family obligations and life. You take all the time you need....

Jackie said...

Sending lots of HUGS and GOOD WISHES your way Anne! Take your time, enjoy the break and we'll be here when you're ready to return!

We all need time to regroup every now and then. It helps to get us anchored to what's important. Enjoy your time off. :o)

All That Jazz said...

A week, a month.....how about a day??? ;-) Just kidding, you know we will miss you!! Trust me, I have taken blogger breaks (sometimes on purpose, other times because I've been on vacation and far from my laptop) but it's always been the best thing. If you can accomplish those "other" important things in your life, you will feel better in mind and heart and will truly be able to devote to your blog again!

Hi Anne! I hear ya, honey! I've just take a week's break to do something I've been putting off for some time now and wanted to pop in to see what you were up to! As much as I love love love blogging I needed to get away and take care of some stuff! I've just read your post about how we can let blogging interfere with our lives! Just do what you need to and we'll be here when you get back.
You just take care.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Candylei said...

Get renewed, refreshed, inspired and rested. That is hard to do when you have a full time job and moving I know. Hopefully no more freezing or cracked pipes.
Take care,

Elizabeth Maxson said...

In a way, I hope you aren't reading this...that means you are really taking a break...but I get it..you are much more gracious with your readers about your breaks than I ever was (am). I could learn from you. I tend to just disappear - sometimes I am truly just so busy and caught up, I just don't make it to the computer after long days. Other times, my personal life...well, as they say, "life happens" and whether it is illness, family issues, life issues, personal issues, or whatever issues, life happens, and so I take care of it and put the computer on the back burner for however long I need.

I used to feel the need to "explain" but found that bloggers are a loving group and they "get it" and just want to hear from you whenever you get back. So, whenever you do get back, just know that while I may not make my "rounds" to all the blogs like I would like to, that doesn't mean I don't check in now and again to see how everyone is doing. And know that I don't need you to reply when you get back - I will check in....just do what you need to :-)

:-)

Love
Elizabeth

Unknown said...

It's OK...that's one of the lovely things about blogging...we all need a break from things.
Take it and don't feel guilty.
Your friend~KarenSue
ps...just please come back when you are ready.

Anonymous said...

I read your above post, Anne, and this one, too. Gosh, I wish I could be so brave! I'm so afraid that no one will be there when I get back, if I take any time off from blogging. Would it be the end of the world for me as I know it... probably not... but I have enjoyed it so much, and now I have responsibilities to my sponsors. I also feel ALL of the things you mentioned in the post above, Anne...
I wouldn't hold it against anyone if they need a little time off... I hope they wouldn't hold it against me either...
Enjoy your vacation... we'll be here when you get back. :)
xo,
Jo

Unknown said...

Nice pictures!

Lara said...

Sometimes we all need to put blogging on the backburner and break away for awhile. Your readers understand and will look forward to your return post. I know how hard it is to break away from blogging for a week.. and to be so out of the loop.. it's so iresisitable for me to not see all the daily incoming flow of new posts from bloggers. I hope you get all you need to accomplish accomplished. :))

Lisa said...

Just a note to my Lurd to say, whether your 'in' or 'out' I'm 'here'. Sorry I haven't called or anything. My kids have been sick with flu, strep & everyother nasty virus they could find since Christmas! Yes, no lie! I've been lurking tho. Wish you were coming with me in May. Heck, I'd settle for RT. Call sometime. Miss you.
