Saying Goodbye. For now....

Hey everyone,

I think it's time for me and Dog-Eared & Bookmarked to part ways. At least for a while.

With everything that has happened in my life, and with my mom, I think it's time for me to take a break. My mom's health is getting better and better, yet I still find myself overwhelmed with not having the time to dedicate myself to this blog.

I love it and it hurts my heart to write this, but I think it's the best thing. I'm not sure how long I'll be gone, but I will be back... that is my promise!

Thank you for your love and support these past seven months. These have been some of the hardest months for me to get through. It's been your support and encouragement that has helped get me through. For that, I am truly thankful.

Dog-Eared & Bookmarked will be back one day, and I'm hoping it will be better than ever.

Thank you,



  1. come back when you are ready. Your blog will always be in my google reading list.

    Take care, my friend.

  2. Cyndi,
    I will miss your blog, but I definitely understand you needing a break! I hope we can still keep in touch via twitter. (((hug)))


  3. I <3 YOU CYNDI!!!
    I'm glad your mom is getting better and better.

  4. I will miss reading your blog, but real life stuff is definitely more important to take care of. I hope that life slows down and gets less overwhelming for you soon!

  5. Sad to see you go. I hope all turns out well for you and that you always have time to sit in a corner and read a book and get away from the world for a little while.


  6. You my dear are such a wonderful, strong person! I know I haven't said that lately but you know it is true (plus you're a hottie and you know it!) This must have been a really hard decision for you, but in the end you have to do what's best for you! Your blog and the rest of us will always be here when you are ready to come back, I promise :) In the meantime, you know I am just a simple tweet away!
    p.s. Katelyn <3's YOU!!!!

  7. I will miss you, but I can still talk to you on Twitter. :) I understand completely why you need the break, though! Take some time for yourself and your mom. So glad to hear that she's getting better and better. :) *hugs*

  8. I will miss you, but take your time for yourself and your family. I'm glad to hear your mom is getting better! I'll be still here when you feel ready to come back to blogging.

  9. <333 We will miss you but you need to do what YOU need to do. We'll all be here. Glad to hear your mom is getting better!

  10. I missed this post...I'm gonna miss you! Don't disappear from Twitter! If you ever need to chat, just find me. And I understand wanting to step away...I feel like I should do that at times as well.
