Until We Meet Again

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes life gets so hectic I feel like I'm drowning in bills, responsibilities and expectations. This month is no different - especially coming off a long vacation!

In order to a) lose a few more pounds, b) move our remodeling along a bit more before the holidays roll around and c) just generally calm my nerves I'm going to be taking some time off around here - not that I won't be cooking and photographing it - I will be doing that - but all in preparation for my return! I'm thinking at this time it will be about a month - but then again this thing is kind of like crack for me and who knows how long I'll actually be able to stay away?

Fear not, however, that I won't be around at all. I'll certainly be reading your blogs and tagging your recipes for later use. So as summer winds to a close I wish you all (and myself) fewer calories, more energy and time to do all the things on your to-do list, too! See you in October.

  5. OOOh - so fun... getting your name changed! (I'm such a huge dork!) I actually JUST got engaged (last Wednesday before leaving for Copenhagen... online now checking for my lost luggage :-( )... so I will need tips on changing the name early next year. More on that to come! Europe is great, though!

  6. You didn't miss it - couldn't post anything because I wanted to surprise my friend who I was visiting. :-) I'm also waiting on some pictures of the event so it might be a very late post. Still SO excited, though!!! (keep PRAYING about the luggage, though - 36 hours later and NO WORD)

  10. I understand. Life gets in the way of blogging... I hate it! LOL. I've taken another cake decorating course, and I'm starting the fondant and gumpaste class tonight. I haven't even had time to post pics! :(

  11. I love your blog and miss it... and I totally understand the need for a sabbatical to recharge. I just emerged from my own hiatus. :)

Like Thumper's mama told him: If you can't so something nice, don't say anything at all. Thanks, y'all.
