Putting on the "breaks"

It's nice and HOT here.
I'm taking a break from blogland.
Have a sizzlin' summer my friends.
I'll leave you with the last of my N.C. pictures.







































And with this, I will say aurevoir.

Au revoir. Profitez de votre été.

Julie Harward said...

What a great time, and you look divine! I will miss stopping here and you! My blogging has come down to a post every week or so. I used to get 89-100 comments but since going private I get about 20ish. I miss lots of ladies but my daughter wanted me to do it because of the children, plus I don't have to correspond back to so many..that is good, it was getting too big. Time off and away is a good thing...we do have a life to live after all! Have a fun summer and I hope to still see you on FB. :D

wendy said...

For sure sometimes we need that "blogging break"...especially in the summer with great weather, a nice pool, and lounging to be done.
I'm afraid if I don't blog for several weeks, I'll loose all my readers?????
Hmmmmmmmmmm....should that really matter??
You are so gorgeous and I've told you that a thousand times.
Seen many of these photos from your facebook, and you put in some new fun ones too.
I enjoyed them all.

We'll keep in touch, and as soon as I'm back in Alberta, I'll give you a call so we can have a nice chat.
always your BGF

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Have a fantastic break. There is SO MUCH TO DO away from blogland! Give my best to any of the girls you may see, s'il te plaît ma belle?

Anita

racheld said...

Cheri,

Have a wonderful break-time---stay cool and sassy!

from your Deeeeep-South friend,

OHHHH VWAAAAAH,

rachel

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dearest Claudie!

Merci pour être venue ma belle!! I hope you are well and that Sister is well too! You are taking a blogging break my dear? Well I so appreciate you coming over. Our summer is starting off so lovely with good weather, home projects and my launching off more ideas in art to show to local shops. It is so hard to think BUSINESS when art has to come from INSPIRATION. Oh well, I am learning every single day.

Much love to you my dear...you are very much in my thoughts. Anita

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hey sweetie! Enjoy your break! I will have to e-mail you to see what you are up to!

Love,
Deb xo

Kim @ Bluebirds and Butterflies said...

Hi Claudie! Your photos are all so beautiful in this posting! The peonies are fabulous, too. Looks like you had a wonderful trip! I would absolutely love that Balsam Mountain Inn. The photo of you on the porch is truly a wonderful one. Hope that you put that in a nice frame to remember your trip by. Such great memories for you! Love ya, Kim xoxo

Sandy Michelle said...

I love the pix of you with the umbrella and that wine is so funny! Have a great 'hot' break!

Sandy xox

Sandy said...

Everyone needs a break so enjoy your summer! I just popped over here after seeining your comment on Bluebirds and Butterflies! Love everything French but sorry, I don't speak or understand the language. There is plenty here for me to read while you're on your break. I love the south and love all the places you have visited. Windsor, Ontario is just over the border from me. I live in a suburb outside of Detroit, Michigan.

Red Rose Alley said...

Blue ridge mountains is beautiful, Claudie, and the picture of you in the meadow with the purple flowers is lovely. I think that should be framed. So, you are taking a break? I think I could use a break right about now too. I hope you are having a good summer, and please know that you will be in my heart while you are away.
~Sheri at Red Rose Alley

Jeanne, backyard neighbor said...

Hi Claudie, This is a fun memory and I love reliving our time together. thanks for the great cropping. smile!!!

I haven't posted most of these. The Balsam Inn pics are so nice. I hate to think it is the last of our wonderful time together. The umbrella pics are especially pretty because you are in them. Little did the girls in the store know how much fun we would have with there sweet gift to you.

The Hartmann's are on a photo shoot and I begged off. I am way behind in visiting my blogging friends. They will be leaving on Saturday.
Then we will go camping with our kids on July 7th for a week.

Is Wendy home yet? I can't figure out how many places she is going.

I am sorry about your cousin but it is a blessing for him not to suffer anymore. Condolences to all who will miss him.

I love you and miss you my darling friend.

xoxoxo, Jeanne

Jeanne, backyard neighbor said...

Oops "their" not there. sigh!!!
Me again. xoxoxo

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Chère Claudie,

Thank you for visiting. I hope you are well, enjoying some quiet time and having a wonderful summer. I hope sister L. is doing well! HUGS TO YOU Anita

Plumrose Lane said...

All those delicious wild flowers and the star lanterns of the Balsam Inn had to be my favs. Enjoy your time away!
♥Sharon

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Claudie Sweetie...
We must catch up. I can see what a beautiful time that you and Ms Jeanne had together on the road. Laughter, love and so many smiles. You would make a gorgeous model sweet one, you are SO photogenic. Just seeing you makes my heart smile. Thank you for sharing all the beauty that surrounded you. I was born in Charleston on the naval base. It is a beautiful place but like so many has been commercialized in many ways.

I have been working 7 days a week on a realy big project, and have not had much time to blog. I miss you terribly. Email me and bring me up to date on your life sweet one. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Annesphamily said...

I am taking some time off too! My baby is heading off to Kansas for college. I long for a quieter life. My work place is a disaster and the doctor is worse than King Midas with his new Audiologist. She is young and in his opinion attractive. He dotes on her and treats the rest of us like slaves!
Plus no one likes my posts about the shooting here in Aurora, Colorado yet it does affect all of us. So many sightings of God Himself in all this. Lots of little miracles popping up everywhere. I suppose I hurts my heart because most of the victims were around the ages of my own children.!
Enjoy your break, your photos are always beautiful!
Blessings,
Anne

Jeanne, backyard neighbor said...

Hi Claudie, when ever I want to relive our NC time together, I come to this post. I love it and the memories make me smile.

Thanks for your comment about my son. He is the sweetest man and a fun loving person. We are so proud of him.

I love you to pieces and miss you so much. You are in my thoughts every day.
Jeanne xoxoxo

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine said...

I hope your summer is going well and you're staying cool. I've taken an unintentional break from my blog too. Hope to see you back in the fall. I miss you!

Val said...

GORGEOUS!! and love-filled photos. ♥♥ I hope your summer has continued to be happy and healing. I miss you.

Love and Prayers,

Val

~CC Catherine said...

Oh My Peanut Butter my Belle! lol Is that your Umbrella in the field? I just bought one EXACTLY like that! And I love it! Too funny! Would you believe that I'm BLOGGING tonight? Don't fall over.... lol This post brings back memories from your visit earlier this summer...TOO FUN! WOW - where did the days, weeks, and months go? It seems like forever since you were here. :( I decided after Facebooking tonight that I was GOING to post and VISIT a few of my cronies! :) Of course, YOU made the list! I love & miss you friend! hugs/Kisses to the MOON & BACK! Got home from NC today - went up to enjoy Jonny for the weekend. Poor little guy has terrible styes in his eye. :*( Love you! xoxo

Laser Woodbridge VA said...

I really like to read.Hope to learn a lot and have a nice experience here! my best regards guys!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Claudie, you have been on my mind a lot lately, and no wonder! Jeanne said you are having surgery today. I caught Mr. Magpie before he went out the door, and we prayed for you.

My email address was sent a virus, and I have a new one which Jeanne has. But I doubt you will be able to do emails with surgery of the nature you are having. I do want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers for a full and speedy recovery.

Take good care of youself!

XO,

Sheila

Val said...

Oh! According to the comment above mine, your surgery was a month ago already? I do hope the recovery is going smoothly.

Love to you, xox♥
