I think we need a break...

Dear Readers,

You may or may not have noticed, but I have been struggling with Swoonworthy lately.

A little over a month ago, I started a new, much more demanding job (which I love), and have been overwhelming myself with freelance projects during my "spare" time. Essentially, I'm back to my normal, pre-cancer self: Way too busy, and loving every minute of it.

This blog kept me creative during a very dark point in my life; but now that I have climbed entirely out of that hole, it's time for me to take a little blog hiatus.

Sadly, blogging has become a chore; just another line on my checklist, one more obligation that, unfortunately, has started to stress me out.

It is with great reluctance that I step away from Swoonworthy for an unknown period of time. I just can't keep providing you with posts I'm not proud of.

I hope you will understand my decision, and that you'll return to Swoonworthy when I eventually do.



  1. I've enjoyed reading your blog Paige! Let me know when you start writing again.


  2. I understand that feeling. I hope you have a nice break and occasionally give us a nice post or two. :) You have a great sense of style and design.

  3. Totally understand Paige. It is so rewarding but it consumes a lot of valuable time. The good news is your feeling great & enjoying the day to day. If you decide to come back, we'll being hanging out here somewhere in the blogasphere. Take much care & live large Xxxdeb

  4. so bittersweet! i'm glad you are feeling wonderful enough to be so busy (and loving it :) ), and will dearly miss your adorable swoons. thank you so much for the inspiration and sweet, sweet words.
    enjoy your break :)

  5. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :(

    at least i still get to see you in real life :)

  6. I look forward to reading your writings on style and design every single day - so will really miss them (and you!).
    I hope that you can put a post out to us every now and then and let us know how you're doing. Enjoy your time with your family and the Boyfriend and maybe too, your house-hunting dreams will come true. Thanks for all the blogging you've done for us - no one can fill your shoes (and we know how much you love your shoes!) so you MUST eventually come back to us in the Blogoshpere!
