A NEW WEEK...

Friends, I've disappeared again and I'm sorry. Some exciting and time-consuming things are happening in both my professional and personal life so I've decided to take a little time off from blogging. I strive for a healthy work/life balance and I'm learning to keep some things just for myself right now.
I was at Lake Tahoe this weekend on a beautiful hike when I began to lament the fact that I hadn't brought my camera to capture the gorgeous view from up top. Then I thought to myself, "Some things are just better captured as a memory." So I decided to take a picture of the view with my mind and keep it just for me. And that pretty much sums up my state of mind these days: someone who is present to life and living in the moment. So I've decided to take one thing off my plate, blogging for now, so I can have a little extra time to do just that.

Thank you for your visits and your understanding...be back in a bit!

Love,
Crystal

How wonderful for you! Sounds like an exciting time in your life- treasure it and enjoy it. :) Your readers (myself included) will be here when you get back! :)

I like this...don't you ever feel like with technology we're always trying to "capture" moments to either tweet or blog about?? being in the present is good :)

Good call Crystal.

I struggle with this myself everyday. Readers are fickle, it seems. And a life well lived is out there waiting for us!

I am going to start, I think, by getting rid of comments on my blog. It seems (to me) with so many blogs out there that commenting is quickly becoming a 'thing of the past' on blogs.

I'll keep on following you and your baby Rue ~ Here's to bigger, brighter things, and to being present for life's little moments!

Good for you! Have fun :) And P.S. I've had that no-camera anxiety before, and sometimes I feel like we take it into our heart more if we can observe rather than capture it on all of our devices.

Don't feel the pressure...blogging is a tiny little drop in the water called life :)

Lake Tahoe looks gorgeous. I know how much work maintaining a blog can be so I can only imagine what Rue requires! All of your readers of Plush/Rue are surely smitten so we won't be going anywhere soon! Living in the moment is the way to go! xo

Looking forward to reading again when you are ready to post.

Until then, find the John Mayer song, "3x5", perfectly describes Not taking photos and just taking in the moment. Really. Listen to the words.

Enjoy.
