An August Hiatus

Happy August, friends! Can you even buh-lieve that it is August? How on earth is that possible? I have made a bit of a radical (for me, anyway) decision: to take the month of August off from the blog. GULP.  I can barely believe that I just wrote that!  Wowsy.

Despite the fact that I have a bagillion things that I would like to write about, I have decided to wait until September to do so.  I really need to take time for myself, my family and my friends. It has been an extraordinarily busy year (as you all know) and I know that now I need to rejuvenate, rethink, rest and refresh. I also have a couple of health issues with which I have to contend and need to focus on wholehearted healing.

So, for just a few short weeks, I will bid you adieu. I will still be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Please feel free to join me here.  In the meantime, have a beautiful August and see you in September!

    Hollye dear,

    I have tried to leave you several replays but my screen freezes when I try to send. I'm sure it is just technical issues with my computer skills . At any rate I wish you a most intrepid summer ! Also sending love your way for your continued good health. Love reading your blog and all the positive energy you so effortlessly publish. One day I love for you to sign the book for me.

    Hearts love,

    Wishing you an awesome, amazing August! Take lots of Pajama Days, breathe, spend time with family and friends. Take long walks (picnics!) on that wonderful beach, in those amazing mountains (I do miss those mountains), recharge, refresh, renew! Sending good vibes, happy thoughts and healing energy your way. Good golly, can you tell I was raised in California or what? See you in September, Miss Hollye, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
