I’m Closing Down My Blog… for 2 Weeks!

posted by Andrea | 07/17/2012

That’s right, I’m taking 2 full weeks off from blogging to enjoy the simplicity of summer… and the fact that Dave will only be home all day for a few more weeks.

Doesn’t it always seem like summer goes WAY too fast? 

It does!

I won’t be posting guest blogs, reposting old content, or documenting our daily life like I did over our spring break “staycation”. There will be no giveaways or special promotions. The blog will simply sit for two weeks without updates.

Yes, I’ll probably lose a few readers and a bit of revenue, but I’m OK with that. The purpose of my blog is to help others to simplify and get more organized… so I assume I can take a bit of time to do the same :)

I’m tired.

Really, really tired.

After 8 months caring for a fussy baby who never sleeps, managing our home, and working more than full time… I just need a break.

My hope is to get some much needed rest, cross a few things off my list, have a little fun, and come back with new energy and lots of new ideas to share here on Simple Organized Living.

I will still be active over on the facebook page, so head over there if you want to stay in the loop…. otherwise I’ll see you back here in August!

    We will miss you, but way to go! You do deserve a break so enjoy every minute of it. We have four kiddos and they go back to school in three weeks! Summer does go by WAY TO FAST!

    The homework is coming which means time to stock up on wine!!! :)

    Happy Summer and thanks for all you do to help us get organized.

    So glad for your family that you’re courageous enough to trust God and take a break for a bit. I believe that by your faith He will bless your business more than you could’ve ever done through your own efforts. Life is short. Enjoy!

    I don’t know how you do everything that you do and have a major renovation going on. You certainly deserve time off to do for yourself and your family what you need to do, that is the first priority. Get some rest and enjoy yourself and we will see you when you come back. Take Care!

    Good for you. Sometimes you just need to take some time for yourself and this is a great way being self employed does not mean you should not take the time you need/want with family and your right Dave will be going back to work soon so its a great way to spend more time together.

    Summer is going too fast so I hope you enjoy the rest of yours.

    Isn’t that one of the first lessons of organizing? Organize your time so that you can have the energy to do all the rest. Enjoy.

    Wow, enjoy the two weeks. I enjoy your blog at the end of my day. A two week vacation is what I need. With four kids under 4 under toe and a wonderful husband, a new house (we just moved), we all could use a vacation. Look forward to seeing you in August!
