I love the summer. Especially now that we’re living in Wisconsin, the summers have become much more precious. All winter long, while enduring negative temperatures, I have been longing for warmer weather. And to my delight, it has finally arrived! This summer I am eager to spend time at the pool with my kids, go for long runs, and enjoy concerts in the park.

A few years ago, I realized that in order to sustain a healthy pace of life and to help nurture my own creativity, I needed to pull back from blogging for a season each year. Since our family rhythm significantly changes in the summer, and since I want to enjoy every ounce of it that I can, it seems that summer is the natural time to pull back.

But before I go silent for a few months, I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to all of you who have followed along with my blog this year. Also, I want to let you know that over the course of the summer I will be completely revamping my blog to give it a totally new look and feel. I’ve already started to work on the new design and I’m eager to share it with you.

I’ll still be active on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so feel free to connect with me there. And for those of you who are local, I hope to see you out and about this summer!

Happy Summer,

    I have enjoyed reading these and wholeheartedly agree that taking a break for the summer is a wise move. One thought though… if you think that this past winter was enough to have you looking forward to summer, then just wait until you get a “normal” winter! Brrrr! Haha!
