See You Soon!

August 1, 2012

Hi dear friends. How are you? I’m going to take a little “Summer Pause” for the month of August but don’t worry because I’ll be popping in to visit you on decor8 from time to time to share my inspirations and favorite finds as I go…

See You Soon!

I’m taking a break so that I can relax a bit before I get back to serious business in September because as you know, Summer is too short and the Autumn and Winter is often so, so long!

I’ll see you in a few days or so. xo, Holly

    Have a nice break!

    It’s a good thing to take a break in time to time. Otherwise you’ll burn yourself out. Believe me, I’ve been there. For us self employed/freelancers/business owners etc. it’s especially hard to remember to take those breaks.

    But there’s no way one is able to keep on and keep up continuously. So breaks are a very good thing!

    Sounds good, try to sit ono your hands/keyboard a little bit… My cats strongly recommend sitting on keyboards. Very relaxing, apparently.

    Hallo Holly!

    Giving time to yourself is a very intelligent idea! I hope someday doing myself a month like you to travel. Fighting!

    I just took a little pause myself…It is so important to be a bit idle in the summer.

    Enjoy and see you soon…

    Good for you, Holly!! I’ve been taking mini blog breaks, too. The sun only peeks out from behind the clouds a couple of months of the year, so I’m making a point of enjoying it. :)

    This is a well-deserved breather for you. You really do brighten the lives of so many … mine included! xo

    You’re right- summer will be over before we know it, so enjoy it NOW! Also, a big thanks for all the lessons in BYW 2.0. I have been going over my notes, and really learned a lot, will write more about that soon! xo Desha

    thank you for being such an inspiring force! i saw your lovely book at anthropologie the other day and smiled thinking — she’s a blogger, too. i am currently reviewing the layouts of my first book and as you can relate, it is such a dream come true.

    i hope that you are having a happy summer.

    know that so many of us are rooting for you, always
