Time for a Summer Break
This is the first summer in a long time that I’ve actually been able to enjoy–there has already been a lot of walks, working and reading in the garden, taking drives, etc. It’s been so restorative, in fact, that I’m inspired to take a three-month break from posting here on The Minimalist Woman.

I want to take this blogging break to focus on writing fiction, as well as renewing my wells of creativity, which is always a good idea for any writer. This was part of my long-term plan, and it feels like the perfect time to move forward with it. I will occasionally journal about writing at my other blog, megwolfe.com. I’ll also be available via email or the Contact form, though, so it won’t be like dropping off the face of the earth.
The garden studio turned out great. It’s the one room in the house from where the view is both inspiring and conducive to creative concentration, and makes a great place to write for a few hours. I suspect I’ll be doing a painting or two in there, as well. The new park downtown has begun its full schedule of concerts, markets, and other fun activities, and it seems like the perfect time to just kick back a little and live the life. There aren’t any big home improvement projects scheduled, and there’s only a few things that need decluttering–and if I don’t feel like dealing with it, nothing’s lost. There’s room enough in my house and my life to take advantage of summer time–a nice benefit of a Minimalist lifestyle.
Are you planning to do things a little differently this summer, too?
See you in September
