"Sommer Pause" (summer break: in German)

1.9.12




I know that everyone loves vacation, but I realize that many have very little time to take off.  

This is one thing that Germans really value.  Vacation time.  Most all Germans have at least a month off every year.  They take a few weeks off in summer, a week off at Christmas and maybe a week around easter.  They love vacation and can really set things aside as they take a break.  



I can be somewhat of a Workaholic, much like my mom.  So, I think for folks like us, we need to really set time aside to not do anything. 

It August I took a vacation!  It did me good to get out of the house and spend time just being. 








In addition to taking time off my day job, I didn't work on my shop, and I took a vacation from this blog. That was a challenge because this blog doesn't feel like work to me.  I participated in the August Break.   I stepped away from the little pressures of blogging and just shared visually.  

This vacation and even break from the things I love in my life, really helped me to value them.  The break made me really excited to get back into it.  Back to writing on the blog, back to working on my business.  I am super inspired and ready to get back to work.  



Have you taken a vacation this year?  A break from the pressures of life, even the good ones?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences of it.  

Thanks for reading lovelies!
