blogging break

My life has bumps in the road, treasures, great love, and complications, just like yours.
Due to the energy these things consume,
I'm taking a break from blogging.

In Texas we've been snowed/iced in since Friday.
That means everything has been closed.
We are ready for the sun to warm us up again!

Sometimes I discover,
what I thought knew before,
was no longer relevant.
Things change,
people change,
I change,
ideas change,
Life changes.
Sometimes there's an end.
Sometimes there's a beginning.

Dear blog friends, I'm sending you fabulous wishes of grand moments with family, friends, good food, wonderful music, and joyful fun!
Keep creating, or doing whatever it is that makes you happy.
All the best to you, with peace and love,
Teddi :)

  10. Oh... :( I can't be selfish... but I will be... I will miss you and your inspiring posts. Your art journal pages. Just like this one. Yes, people change, things change, situations change,, end or beginnings... we have to judge... I will miss your pictures with your lovely smile and great style. But you know, if you need a break, I support you, of course. Along many years you have been so supportive and I can't imagine not having your wise words every week, but as I said, I know that sometimes a break is needed. Be very sure, very very sure that I really like you and your mind and heart and that whatever you do, no matter how many members of family or friends you have, I want you to know you have a friend in me.
