Things have been a little busy around here.  My littlest "charmer" is done with preschool and my bigger "charmer" will be done next week.  So I've had lots of "mommy business" to attend too :)

Maybe you've noticed I haven't been posting or commenting as many other bloggers I'm feeling a need to back off a little bit this summer.  Somewhere along the way I think I lost track of my priorities...see those 2 sweet little faces up there???  They need to be at the top of my list.

You'll still see me around, I just can't resist sharing and chatting with my blogging friends.  I'm just going to drop that pressure I put on myself to post and comment...and hope that you don't all forget about me...

Looking forward to all this summer has instore...I don't want to miss a minute of this precious time with my "little people" before they become "big people" ;)

Take care...and chat soon,


  1. Me, too! :) Good post! I won't forget you!

  2. I know how you feel, Laurel! My little people have grown somewhat, but I still love having them around when they have my full attention. It sounds like you have your priorities straight!

    Have a wonderful summer!


  3. Your priorities are right! Of course it's been said before, you will wonder how it happpened that they grew up so quickly.

  4. I couldn't have said it better myself. I too feel that I am not spending enough time with my 12 & 14 year old... I think I'll be slowing it down too this summer..

  5. Forget you? Nah! no way! Spend time with those babies, in a blink they'll be grown. Blogs and bloggers are here to stay. And anyway, who are we all competing with? Post when you want to, if not, it seems like work:-) Enjoy your summer, and love those little ones.
    Best, Vicki

  6. I think everyone feels this way at this time of year. At least according to my lack of comments! Who wants to lug around a camera at every event in order to show photos? We are up to our eyeballs in wedding planning so my blogging seems to be at a standstill. I hope bloggers will wait for me and not delete me as one of the blogs they follow! Life, or something like it, must come first! Have a wonderful summer!


  7. Sounds like your priorities are just right, Laurel! It's why I keep the "Blogging Without Obligation logo on my sidebar! Enjoy your time with your sweeties! XO

  8. Mine are long grown. Spend time with them while you can.

  9. Oh sweet Laurel,
    You have your house in order! What a great Mommie! I am heading back down under to be with my sweet child and grand child. Have a wonderful summer. NO one will forget you! If they do it is their loss.

  10. Makes perfect sense to me!! Have a wonderful summer with your two charmers....we won't be forgetting about you!

  11. You've got things just right, Laurel - spend time with your little ones while you can! Once they're teens, they're not so interested in spending time with Mom anymore! Have a fabulous summer - nobody will forget you!


Thanks for your sweet comments! Please also feel free to contact me through email or on my Chipping with Charm Facebook page. I love hearing from you :)
