Closing Down for the Year!!

Merry Christmas week you guys!!

Today we are doing something we have never done before in nearly seven years of blogging….we are taking off for the rest of the year!! :)

We know most of you guys are going to be busy spending time with your friends & family, wrapping presents, opening presents, watching Christmas movies like Elf, having snowball fights, drinking Eggnog (try it with Baileys! My new favorite holiday drink ever!), sitting by the fire, looking at the Christmas tree, and in general getting some much needed rest. And frankly, we wanted to carve out the time to do the same!

So this year I just decided to give myself permission to not put that pressure on myself to come up with a new post everyday these last few days of 2013, when I know most of you are going to be logging off your computers anyway. It’s a chance for us to wake up for ten days straight or so, and not have anything specific we have to have up by a certain time. Amen!

I plan on using this time to get some MUCH needed rest (apparently our bodies knew we had been pushing it a bit too hard this year….we’ve been sleeping for like twelve hours every night the past few days!), to spend some time writing & reflecting and getting back to the kind of posts that mean something and that I WANT to be writing on here, and to work (don’t worry, there’s not much more to do!) on a super new exciting project that we will be launching at the beginning of the year!!

So mark you calendars & join us right back here on Jan 2nd for our return to blogging and the big announcement of our CRAZY new adventure!! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one!

Until then, we hope all of your days are Merry & Bright! We are so, SO grateful for each & every one of you and for sharing life with us this year!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays you guys!
