and so, until summer . . . adios


in which i admit i need time off.
saying it out loud feels freeing and cowardly at the same time,
but there it is, and so i will.

  1. Not cowardly at all. Relax, refuel, rejuvenate. It's a good thing. Of course, your words will be missed. (Love the photo!)

  5. Wishing you some deep relaxation, warm sunshine on your back, and hours of doing nothing but existing at the amoeba level (if I know you at all, I know this won't happen, but I still wish it upon you).
    Take good care of yourself.
    xoxo

  6. Oh Emma...such a great and nourishing gift of time you give yourself...something so necessary for most of us yet how often we do not take that step away from the business of our lives. I will be delighted when once again your words will appear in my inbox with a notice. Be well and infill with the sweetness of this time out. Kristin

  7. Sometimes a time out is needed. Come back when things are brighter. How could anything be dark under the Texas summer sun?

  9. The generous part of me sincerely says, "Enjoy your time."

    The selfish part of me says, "Hurry back!"
