Taking a break...


To be honest, 2008 has not been the greatest of years for me (I'm sure I'm not alone in that thought) so I'm going to be glad to see the back of it. I'm taking some much needed time away from blogging. I'm not sure when I'll be back, if at all. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this beautiful artwork by artist Nancy Lorenz. I hope next year is a better year for all of us!

Artwork above is "Cill Railaig" by Nancy Lorenz, via PDX Gallery.

That is a great photo! Like you 2008 wasn't a good year at all! Here's a toast to a better year in 2009! I love your font for your logo. Can you share what the font is? Thanks in advance!

Oh dear. Sorry to see you go, but I hope you will return rejuvenated. Thing will probably get a little worse before they get better. But better they will get. Promise! Best wishes for a happy holiday, in whatever you're doing..and good luck in 2009!

I think it is good to take a break from blogging every once in a while; it recharges the batteries, and helps one look at things anew.

Have a restful, peaceful break. Best wishes for a happy 2009! I know that all of us are surprised that 2008 has not been a great year for you; you would never know it based on your posts!

MIMILEE said...

OH, so sad you are having a down time. We all through TIMES like this, but keep your chin up and it will get better!

I will be praying for you!

God Speed and Peace! <><

so i'm just reading this (somehow i missed it- in the crush of the holidays i got so behind in blog reading, i cleared my google reader to start fresh). never fear, suzy dear, 2009 is going to be a very good year, much better than 2008 (don't believe the dire predictions- they are just not true).

as for blogging, take your time- as you probably know, i've taken several breaks during my first year of blogging, but each time i returned refreshed and renewed! enjoy your time off, and i'll look forward to your return!
