Today is the day. Spring break begins. A time to get away from the ordinary daily scheduled life and make new memories as family.
I've debated my next move. I've thought a lot about what I should do. This year is going to be different. It's hard to write these words, but this is the first spring break vacation that is not a stay-cation at home or a visit to my parents' home. Our days away will be full and busy and exhausting and fun.
Living life is more important to me right now. Time with family and friends is more important to me right now. Snapping photos and capturing memories in my notebook are more important to me right now.
This is my seventh year of the March SOLSC. Over the past six years, I wrote all thirty-one days in March. That's a celebration. I enjoyed it and I had the time to dedicate to writing and commenting in those seasons of my life.
I will not apologize for letting go of this challenge this year at this time. It's what I need to do for myself. I have enjoyed the journey so far, but I'm getting off at today's stop: Spring Break and I'm taking a break from the challenge.
I wave goodbye for now with tears in my eyes. Sad to know I will miss YOUR stories and YOUR words. But I am happy to know I can live freely in each new moment to come without worry.
I'll catch up with you on Tuesdays. Hugs to you all.
P.S. My amazing Mom and fellow slicer has graciously accepted to complete my month-long task on the Welcome Wagon. Thank you so much, Mom!
