A Hiatus

August 2016

My husband and I have purchased our first home! We’re absolutely ecstatic, as it’s all that we hoped for.

That said, it means I’ll be very busy these coming months with packing, moving, scrubbing, painting, repairing, building…and all the wonderful labors of love that come with buying a home. Because of this, I am finding that I can hardly make time to keep up with my reading, much less make time to write thoughtful blog essays deserving of your time and attention.

Seeing as it’s a pretty big life event that requires my full time and energy at the moment (outside of my job), it means I’ll be taking a hiatus for the remainder of the year. (Although, it is a great reason for having to take a break from writing, if I do say so myself!)

I’ll be back in full force by January 2017. In the meantime, I’ll be active on GoodReads as I plan to read as much as I can squeeze in (and frankly, between my job and the house, I’ll be needing a lot of reading breaks to rest and recharge).

    Your first house!!! How exciting! Congratulations! It looks beautiful with all the sun and palm trees (which we don’t have where I live). I hope you have time to post some photos when you Kenia-ize it!

    I’m also very sad to hear that your blog is going to be silent for awhile because your posts are so insightful and thought-provoking, but I understand. I look forward to your return in 2017 and I’ll see you on Goodreads!

    All the best,
    ~ Cleo ~

    • Aw, Cleo thank you so much!! Yes, my hubby and I live in sunny California. It has its drawbacks (like any place), but we do love the weather.

      And yes…I *will* be “Kenia-izing” it! haha In fact…I’m so so SO excited because one the rooms is all my own, and it will be my library! It’s been my childhood dream for as long as I can remember, and my loving husband was determined that we find a house with room enough for it. It will be a while before I do an actual design and remodel, but as soon as we’re moved in and settled I’ll have a room of my own with my books!

      “…your posts are so insightful and thought-provoking” You’re so kind. 🙂 Those are such lovely words and they mean a lot, thank you. Owning a home means there will always something that needs doing, but it’s just extra hectic now as we’re trying to get a lot of things done up front. I cannot wait to settle into a normal rhythm and return to writing regularly.
