  1. My husband and I were just talking about this yesterday. We are designed to need periodic rest… the sabbath concept. I have great empathy for those whose lives don’t allow for a window of “pause,” and who have to keep going every day no matter what. It burns us out. I wish you a wonderful summer, as you disconnect and reflect and create!

  2. Yes! I have been saying that summer is the time to “repair the foundation” of all the different aspects of our lives so that we are strong when the inevitable busyness of fall shows up. Enjoy your break.

  3. Your wit and wisdom will be missed – glad to know it’s only for a short time while you get the most out of your summer – enjoy! BTW Please don’t totally disregard the post comments – some of us just don’t do social media :o) Have a wonderful time off!

  4. I’ve thought about life before every moment was controlled by the internet and technology, how we’re able to know anything and everything at the touch of a button. It’s scary, in all honesty.

  5. As others have mentioned, I will miss you! However, I also say, have so much fun!
    I am exhausted from the mess that is I my inbox and my newsfeed. I am culling every day, and purposefully adding positive content. I think I may just log off and join you in the garden!

  6. Such a great reminder that we ALL need to take a break.

    I’ve been devouring the podcast and loving every episode. Getting ready to read your At Home book, so I’ll have enough Tsh to tide me over until you get back. 😉

    I can’t wait to see what you have on the horizon. See you on the other side.

  7. Amen. Enjoy your break and look forward to reading more and better articles because of it. I think it takes courage to stop when you don’t have to. Thanks for leading by example on this. J

  8. Definitely agree with you! It’s always nice to switch off and take a break from social media- it can be exhausting at times. It is sometimes like we are trapped in a vicious cycle, one where we are afraid of missing out and have the need to “catch up”!

  9. Tsh, it is hard but so important to take time to slow down and step away, get perspective, spend time with family, in nature, recharging, finding inspiration. Thanks so much for setting that example for us! I’m excited to see what your next season holds, and I really enjoyed the book. Thanks for sharing your family’s journey.
