Back To Pretty

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Hi loves! Happy Monday! It's so good to be back after my break.

Thank you all so much for the kind words over the past week. It really touched me to hear from all of you.  I rested up and am starting to feel better. In addition to my illness I've been having a tough time with the medicine I have to take. All in all I was quite the mess but I am slowly getting better with each day.

It was hard to be away...actually this was the longest break I've ever taken in 3 1/2 years of writing this blog. I missed you all but I'm back now. So fill me in. What did I miss? Did you all have a good week/weekend? Sure hope you all did :)

I'll be around soon to say hi. But in the meantime, I wish you the most beautiful of Mondays!

xoxo

Dawn,
I'm so sorry I didn't realize you were ill....I, too, took the week off. It's good to unplug a bit and make time for other fun.

So glad you're feeling better, Dawn. Summer is no fun to be under the weather ... but if there's a way to get better, the beach sounds like it with a stack of books! Sending hugs. {I just pinned that first pic and one from a couple of posts ago of grass on the beach ... and of course said via The Alternative Wife ... they are so gorgeous!} xoxo

Anna said...

Well there you go - I never knew that you had had this gorgeous space for 3 1/2 years!! That's amazing. I think its SO important to listen to our minds and bodies though so it was probably the best thing you could have done taking a little break (although it was the hardest). Hope you're recovery gets speedier and speedier.
