A little break

As I get older I am realizing that one of my strengths is I know how to say no. I can prioritize and make pro and con lists, and I try very hard not to over extend myself. I want to live a balanced life, so that means saying no to something, so I can say yes to other things.

I'll be taking a little break from blogging for at least May and June. And because so many of you out there I've gotten to know, I do want to share why I'm taking a little break.

1. My daughter. She's 17 months old and is just getting to be more of a handful to watch. I find I dont even get to read my favorite blogs regularly anymore. I also want to make more time to go on playdates with her. I tried to write less, and while it helps, I think I need a break.

 2. I got a part time job for 2 months. I'll be working in NYC Friday nights (until the very early hours) and Sunday like 1pm-midnight. I'll be making good money, and I like the job, but obviously its a lot less down time for me personally. With less me time, its harder to spend that time on my blog.

3. I have some big design projects coming up. One for my house, but I've also started doing other peoples homes. I have 3 clients so far that I'll be working on this summer, and I am excited to share with you everything that we are doing.

and 4. My camera broke. So annoying. Not sure what I am going to do at this point, so between the job that just happened and the camera it seems like the right time to step away for a little while.

Thank you so much for reading, it really means the world to me.



  1. 1. ENJOY your break.
    2. Keep in touch.
    3. I'll be here when you get back. :)

  2. The picture with your daughter and the dog is...just lovely!!And so true!!

  3. I am not gonna fib, I will miss reading your blog everyday. I understand 100% why you need to do this. I have three kids! Balance is very important to live a healthy life, so do what you have to do. There aren't enough hours in the day and life is short so make the most of it. I will be looking froward to your return.

  4. just started reading your blog so sad to see you go. I will still check in from time to time and will enjoy reading again once you are back. I understand about the little one. My son is two and a handful

  5. SO you made up your mind- I'm sad to see step away for awhile. But happy you have so many awesome things happening in your life right now! Enjoy them!!
    Miss you!
