After much consideration I have decided to step away from my blog, Nancy On The Home Front, and take a summer break. At least somewhat of a break. I will still be co-hosting the Homestead Blog Hop on Thursdays and sharing recipes on Friday. I’ll also be sharing some guest posts periodically.Summer Break


When I started this blog I had a strong focus on “prudent living” and did posts on gardening, having a prudent pantry, frugal tips and of course recipes. During the last six years I have written over 1,400 posts! As our house is now on the market my focus has shifted. We no longer have chickens on our property and I have cut back on my garden substantially. summer break


Instead our focus here on the home front is selling our home! I have been de-cluttering for the last year and we are also packing. The realtors tell you to pack up the personal stuff so that the potential buyers can imagine themselves living in your home. Eventually we will be moving and when we get that offer we want to be ready. Our garage currently looks like some sort of storage unit and the house itself feels very empty and impersonal. I sure hope we get an offer soon!summer break


I am so thankful for you, my faithful readers. You have been with me over the six years, many of you since the first post on September 19, 2011! I appreciate your faithfulness and your loyalty. Each comment left has meant so much to me. The blogging community is a wonderful thing and the friendships made are so special. I couldn’t have made it this far without the encouragement and support of other bloggers.summer break


I will be posting on my Facebook page and the other social media sites. If you are not already a follower on Facebook, please stop by and like my page. I may be taking a summer break but I still want to stay in touch.summer break


Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to returning full-time  in the fall!fall colors

Your home is so beautiful…the setting is just so serene! I can only imagine how hard it would be to leave that place! I know what you mean about the house seeming so impersonal. That lull in the waiting room after listing the house and actually selling it is a very hard time to navigate through. I trust the Lord will send a buyer to you soon, so you can move forward into the changes and out of this state of limbo. It looks like you started blogging just a few days before I did…my first post was published on 10-1-11. 1,400 posts is a LOT! I am sure you are very ready to stop and take a break for a while, and while I will miss seeing your posts, I hope you have a wonderful summer! Hopefully, when you come back, your house will be sold, and you will be on your way to your brand-new life!

Thank you for your kind words today! I sure hope when I return on a daily basis our house is sold!

Enjoy your break, summer goes by so quickly.. We have our farm up for sale too and we’re just waiting… for the right offer and the waiting is probably the most frustrating part. I’ll be praying that we both sell this summer so we can move on to that next chapter.

Have a wonderful summer and I’ll be praying that your farm sells this summer too!
