Hitting Pause


What an incredible weekend at the Decatur Book Festival. I heard some amazing authors speak (including the great civil rights leader Congressman John Lewis), and my two older kids met their favorite authors. It’s weekends like these where I simply bow down to the ATL.

I am so very lucky to be able to live here.

I’ve been toying with the idea, for a while now, of quitting this blog. It’s not that I’ve stopped enjoying blogging, as much as it is that I have come to enjoy other types of writing more. Once blogging feels like a burden, it’s time to re-examine the point of it.

In some sense, I hold the time of year accountable. This very gradually changing season, from summer to almost-fall, where I eagerly await the arrival of honey crisp apples, hot chocolate with marshmallows, chameleon leaves showing off their new colors– has prompted this decision.

For now, I won’t do anything drastic. I’m just declaring a blogging vacation for the month of September.

But I may, or may not, return in October.

Watched this hot air balloon land just outside my neighborhood on a walk last week.

We’ll just have to see.

In the meantime, be good, and don’t stop writing.
