Growing a ... something

I hate to do this. But I need a blogging sabbatical.

(Especially after I just celebrated my second blogiversary! And especially because this is post #498!)

There is so much change going on in my life now -- some of it good, some of it bad -- and I have been asked to take a look at some of my commitments.

Blogging at this time is just not something I can justify spending an hour on every day.

(And I missed posting my beloved What I'd Wear Wednesday yesterday ... and didn't even realize it until five minutes ago. I've broken my perfect attendance record!)

I'd like to say I'll be back soon. But I really don't know.

You can bet I'll be thinking about all of you that I like to read and wondering how you and your kids are doing.

I just have to sort out what I'm doing with my time and with my life ... and the life I am growing ....

Blogging breaks are a good thing. I believe that to be true.

Take as much time as you need. We'll be here when you return. Unless we're on a break...then see you after that. ;)

I'm going to miss you, but there are things more important than blogging-namely, that adorable little boy of yours. Please come back when you're ready.
