One Week Off Can Change A Girl..

by Carrie with Children with 6 comments

In case you haven’t noticed..  (and I’m secretly hoping that you did notice!), I haven’t posted here in the past week! Everyone deserves a break from time to time, right?   Here’s a brief catchup on what I’ve been up to in my days away…

I’ve spent the last week playing with my children….

I enjoyed way too much good food at Thanksgiving and I even snagged a great deal on a new refrigerator. (Hooray for crushed ice!)

During my break, I turned 34 years old and went to Disney World to celebrate… without the girls!  I really embarrassed my husband when I asked if we could visit some of my friends.

One day I even proclaimed it “Clean Up and Clean Out” day.  It was a day of massive cleaning and donating – it’s amazing how good it felt to get rid of the clutter!

It was a busy, but fun week… and one that was really needed.  I’m up and running, feeling refreshed and recharged.  I’m excited about some new projects on the horizon and I’m excited that Christmas will be here in a few weeks!

Thanks for bearing with me as I took a little time off. I think it’s important to “check out” sometimes and get back to the things that are truly important in life.  There are a lot of fun things coming up for  and I can’t wait for you to join me!

Now,  who wants to help me put up my Christmas tree?

What’s new in your world?  What are you up to these days?

    Happy belated birthday! It is definitely nice to take a time out sometimes – wish I had the guts to do it! 🙂 I’m planning on taking one for about two weeks here at the end of the year to rethink the direct of my blog. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

      Thanks Shelly! Taking a week off was so fantastic – I highly recommend it! 🙂 It’s great to have some clarity and step back to look at things! Enjoy your holiday!
