You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it!

Hi everyone!  I hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful day! I have a confession to make and I don't know how else to put it so here goes, I'm burnt out on blogging and  its time for me to take time off from Peetee's Palace.  
When I started this blog about 3 years ago I had no idea that I would meet so many wonderful women because of it.   I have formed real life friendships that mean the world to me and I intend on keeping those bonds strong regardless of what happens with the blog.   I hope each and every one of you know how much your comments and kinship have meant to me over the years.  You were there for me when my Dad died and offered up your love and support and for that and so much more we will forever be close.  I hope I was truly able to inspire some of you, for you have provided so much inspiration to me.  I wish you all the very best that life has to offer!
 I really mean that.

I love you all!
XXOO~
Krista

Blogging is wonderful, it brought us together and has helped form lifelong friendships but it does take time and effort. That's why I like at least a month off every year to recharge, enjoy and live.
We're going nowhere. Rest, relax and chill.
Speak soon?
Love you! xxxxxxx

Oh Krista, I'll really miss your kind, colourful and quirky take on life and blogging! But if you gotta go, you gotta go - just make sure you come back, OK? xxxx

Aw, I will miss your cheerful bursts of colour and your positive smiley outlook, but everyone needs a blogging break once in a while. Enjoy your time off :)

Helga said...

You are such a fecking FOX, and I am stoked (NZ speak for really happy!) to have actually met you! (You and Christopher were my motivations for coming to Portland in the first place!)
Fair cop; I've been struggling with blogging myself this past year, and have just SORT of started to get excited about it again.... a break does a gal good, for EVERYTHING!
Kisses for Peetee, and much love and kisses to YOU!

Oh bless you Krista, sounds like you need some time out to just be, don't blame you. It's been a full on year. It's always lovely to see into your rainbow coloured but very real world. Maybe next year we'll get to see you in real life. In the meantime, take care, be happy and have lots of fun, lots of love xxxxxx

Sarah Jane said...

I totally understand. I think most bloggers who have been going for more than a couple of years can relate to burnout. Take all the time you need as long as it's not forever :) xxx

i love your blog...and of course you doggy....hopefully you will be on facebook or the like....where oh where did you get your doggy carrier? Piggy needs one I think :)

Tammy McGill said...

3 years is a long time. I took a break after a month or so haha. But I'm started giving it another shot so we'll see how long I can make it this time. I'll miss checking in and seeing what you're up to but its understandable. <3 you

Suzanne Carillo said...

I will miss seeing your rainbow colours light up my week...but you know what? Life is meant to be lived. So go out...discover...create! just have a blast and when and if you decide to come back we'll be here. (I think! ha ha)

Big hugs!

Your doggie carrier is brilliant BTW!

Take care Krista x

Bobbi said...

I'm going to miss your colorful beauty! I always enjoy seeing your posts, even if I don't comment.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Hugs to you and your family.

Vintage Bird Girl said...

I wish I had discovered your colourful blog sooner. You are always a breath of fresh air. I hope the break does you good....we'll be here if you decide to return to blogging. Xx

Pennyblossoms said...

Wishing you a lovely blogging break! Do hope you'll come back soon!
I've popped in intermittently and will be sad to see new colourful posts...but it'll give me a chance to play catch up!!
You've had a bu**er of a year what with the passing of your dad and Petes' op and having to sell your dads' house too, so I truly hope 2015 will be very kind to you.
Lots of love, Zxx

Ivy Black said...

We shall miss you, you wondrous creature, but like Vix says, we're not going anywhere. We'll be here when you get back.
Loadsa love.

Hi lovely, its been a while since I was here after giving up blogging myself for a while. I am still not sure what to do but thought I would just pop over and say hi. I wish you all the best in your break enjoy and have fun. Best wishes, Dee x

Beth Waltz said...

Thank you, dear Krista, for sharing these very full years with us. Enjoy your break from keeping a public journal. We'll look forward to your return!

Forest City Fashionista said...

It seems that quite a few of us have been struggling with whether or not to take a break from our blogs. Good for you to recognizing that you need time away. The best part of blogging for me has been the wonderful women I've met and become friends with. We will stay in touch, but I will miss seeing the flash of pink and orange in my feed. XXOO

pao said...

awww Krista, I hardly knew ye. But I understand. I am so glad we did get to meet up and chat a bit back and forth. You are amazing and a pure delight. Wishing you the best.

thorne garnet said...

everyone needs a break and you've had lots of change happen to you this year. Take a must deserved break, Sweetie. Enjoy a wonderful holiday season!

Natalia Lialina said...

I have the same feelings about time - we make it when we truly want something. :)

I already miss you, Krista! Though I totally understand. Sometimes, it's just time for something new - it's life, we all need to let go of something to make room for something new. You've created such a beautiful, meaningful piece of art with your blog! Your posts are interesting, sincere, bright, full of life and joy for life. There are no other blog like yours, you are truly your own person! It is always a joy to see your posts, no exceptions. I "met" you in probably your hardest point in life, and I have been amazed ever since I started reading your blog how truly kind, compassionate and loving you are. Your posts were helping me to go trough something difficult in my own life. You are one of the kindest souls I've seen, in the truest meaning of this word, and it means a lot to me. And of course your creativity and unique style and beauty!

I wish you the very best too! If some day you'll decide to blog again, it'll be great. If we can meet some time either here or in Portland, I'd be so happy. But even if not, have a blast with your new projects, you have so many talents! You'll always have a place in my heart. Sending you warmest wishes and lots of love, Krista! xxxxxx

Carina Rosenholm said...

I really do understand but im going to miss you so bad !
I hope you will come back to us soon again and share your colourful loving world with us !

Lota of love and hugs !

Melanie said...

Krista - a big hug to you while we both jump up and down and laugh together. Your colour, your optimism have always been huuuuge jolts of joy. And the sharing of your sadnesses, well, of life as it flew around you, has wrapped everything up in your warmth as a person. Thanks so much for blogging. You will be missed - that's a fact.

The Style Crone said...

Dear Krista. So sorry to see you go, but know that life changes. You are a very kind, colorful and wonderful woman and you will be missed. Love to you!

Meghan Edge said...

Hi Krista!!

<3 I'll miss you! Your blog is one of the ones I always come back to blogger looking for, but I totally understand that feeling. I used to post every day and now I hardly post at all. Take care of you, honey.

Nat said...

I thoroughly enjoy your blog and sharing in the colour, joy and amazing spirit and energy that is you, Krista!
Really love all the fantastic, thoughtful comments you have left on mine too :-)
Take care Missus and hope to see you back on here someday soon...

You've had a tough year Krista and I totally understand your need for time off. Take care of yourself and have a cool yule. xx

dream time said...

Thank you for being you, and your colorful, wonderful presence on this planet. <3

Trees said...

I totally get it Krista! I've been feeling the same recently, that's why I've been posting rarely. Do what you need to do and I will totally be here when you return. Also your pink tree is amazing.

Sana said...

I´ll miss you Krista (I´m already missing). You have a so inspiring colorful life and a lovely style to me (even with me living in the collorful country of Brazil). And also I grew up with the image of Portland as a great alternative city and believe it raised my will tho visit the city one day.
But yes, we all need a time off. Take your time! ;)
Love, Sana
