taking time

15 February 2013

i have been somewhat of a ghost around here lately, i know. the transition into the new year was a difficult and emotional one for our little family as we endured a significant loss. time stopped for awhile. everything became quiet and still as we took the time that we needed and allowed ourselves to grieve, wrapped up in a world away from here. 

i have also been hard at work on a number of projects, keeping them mostly to myself during this time of solitude and repose. but i am happy to announce that BIG changes are coming to this ever-evolving space as part of a larger re-branding project. i feel good about where it's headed; where i'm headed. it feels much more 'me.'

here is a little peek.

until it is time, 


p.s. Jane's thoughtful post came at the perfect time for me as i was wrestling with my own emotional terrain and when and how to return to this space in a way that felt right, that felt honest. hopefully you will find something in it, or take something out of it, too.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the tough time you've been having. Take your time but I look forward to your return :) And thanks for the link to Jane's post, my husband in particular can really identify with the first few paragraphs.

    1. Kerry, thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot :)

      Jane is wonderful. She writes with such a beautiful honesty. I'm glad you (and your husband) enjoyed her post!

  2. Sara, I'm so sorry to hear that the New Year has been a difficult for you. It can be so healing though, to take time away to rest and reflect. The new site looks exquisite, and the love and care you've put into it is obvious and inspiring. Can't wait to see what will come next. Sending my warm wishes to you.

    1. thank you so much, Briar. your kind comments and warm wishes mean the world to me. your work is always an inspiration too.

      it is definitely healing to take time, regardless of what prompts it. i am glad that i was able to allow myself to do so....

  3. Hi Sara - Thanks for including a link to my post in this. I hope things find their even keel for you - I'm sorry to hear it's been a rough start to 2013. xx

    1. thanks, Jane. i have been meaning to comment over on your post as well, about how much i appreciated what you wrote, how timely and supportive it was for me. it is funny how long it can take to craft a comment sometimes (almost like a post!), in wanting to accurately express yourself and find the right words.

      while i wish i had the ability to go back in time and change certain events, i don't mind the rough start. it's made me stronger, i think. it's all a part of my journey and i think it can only get better from here!

      thanks again :)
