……and unfortunately it wasn’t very good. it wasn’t TOO bad just out of the oven, but after that it sat like a lump on our counter. i think it had to do with the fact that the only oil i had in the house at the time was some grape flaxseed or something or other oil and it tasted funky and was the color of snake venom……………..or so thought amelia. but it was fun to make and document.

the facebook break I am taking is going so very well. I may extend it over a month…. i love not being “addicted” to the computer. (i am posting this link on facebook, but that is because I can share it straight from my blog…not even having to go on facebook and therefore be tempted to spend an hour catching up….heh)

the other day we fed grant some avocado and he loved it. amelia loved helping to feed him and chase asked “is the baby mr. grinch? he is all green”

summer is almost over. i am in denial. the thought almost makes me want to cry. like childhood, summer is a season i want to bottle up and keep for those long winter days when we yearn to lay outside. i feel like this summer even went faster than ever. how. how is it that we only have about 2.5 weeks until school starts? argh.

dear facebook,

i am writing this letter to tell you that our relationship, as it is now, is over. it’s not you, it’s me. okay. i lied. it is somewhat you. you suck me in and make me crazy and keep me from being 100% present in my day to day life. i know you are great for so many people…really you are great…it is just that I have no self control. I let you suck way too much of my time. I find myself checking in on you more often than doing so many other things. i find myself spending more time with my computer than face to face with my friends and family. and things have to change. and they have to change now.

so as of now. we are on a break. right now i think it will be a month break. when a month is over, we will see where we go from there. but for now. yeah. you and I? on.a.break. (think of ross and rachel….without the girl from the copy place).

unfortunately, i can’t completely leave you….I have a business page I will have to update every once in awhile. but that is all. i won’t allow myself to get sucked into checking every little comment, status update or photo that my uncle’s second cousin’s best friend’s cat sitter’s little brother’s daughters turtle’s hair dresser’s toe clipper is doing. i won’t.

i have books to read.
kids to play with.
rooms to paint
running to do.
a baby to snuggle.
bread to bake.
photos to take.
editing to finish.
the open sky to sleep under.
a husband to go on dates with.
friends to write letters to.
lessons to learn.
family to love.

and so much more. so many things that i was stealing time from by being glued to the computer.

so yeah. a break. starting now.

love, krystal

{even though i am leaving facebook, i still love all my friends and want to keep in touch. so. email me. call me. text me. let’s GET TOGETHER. face to face time is key for this break. i will still post on this blog. i will still post on my business blog, and every once in awhile, my business page. i heart you all}

off to be with these little people, mostly.

woke up this morning. smiled at the rising sun. three little birds, by my doorstep. singing a sweet song, of melodies pure and true…
