Sailing Away

I had hoped to make it to my second anniversary on May 30, but I find that, unfortunately, I need to take an hiatus from blogging, and I need to begin now. Because I find that I cannot visit the blogs and comment in addition to posting photos on a daily basis, I need to bow out for awhile. I'll check in every once in awhile to make sure that you're behaving yourselves!

I want to thank each and every one of you for the pleasure you have given me during this period of time. I have learned a great deal about many parts of the globe and have loved the friendships that have developed. For many of you I have strong feelings of affection. Thank you for sharing your lives with me!

  5. I want to think you'll be back very soon...It's in these sort of cases that I am furious about my weak English which doesn't allow me to express all I'd want to write. But I think you already guess all I am not able to say...Avec toute mon amitié.

  6. Kate, how I am going to miss you. I have loved getting to know you and sharing lives. You were one of the first blog sites I visited and your encouragement and know-how kept me going.
    As Abraham said, forget the deadlines and come and visit now and then.
    Enjoy

  19. Now this one hurts. Losing another St Paul photographer, the best city to grow up in and be a part of. You had also shown me things in St Paul I hadn't seen before through your photos. I'll be looking forward to your return and our next local breakfast club gathering.

  31. Kate, you were one of the first people to make me feel so welcome at CDP, and I will always remember that.

    I understand how you feel; I've had little blogging time of late. I hope that you enjoy your time away, and perhaps will come back from time to time.

  42. I just passed by to see how it was and say "hi !".
    I read that you're tired with blogging
    I can understand that, it happens sometimes to me too.
    I was in California during three weeks and it was good, I'm still tired, however I was happy to meet my friend again when I came back home a week ago.
    Maybe will you blog again ; maybe not, it will be your choice and your life, wich I hope will be nice.
    What is sure is that it will be different fron before you mzde your blog and met lot of friends from all around the world.

    Best wishes for you and your familly, Kate.

  43. I TOTALLY get the need to sail away...after all, you've been a mainstay here for so long... you were one of my first commenters and friends. I've looked through all your blogs after you commented today, and you must still be on the high seas, and I say HOORAH and cheers with a toast and more champagne all around with you dear one!
