I don't want to worry anyone, I'm taking a short break from this blog, but I promise to return. I started the Jaunty Magpie five years ago as a personal blog to collect all the things that inspire or bring me joy, (above photo being a huge part of that, which I'm very grateful for!), but I'm sad to say a recent and sudden death of someone very close to my heart has left me feeling rather broken. Right now, everything is tinged with sadness and a bit of pain, and I don't want that to seep into a blog about good things. I do want to share about what's happened, I think that conversation could potentially be helpful to others going through something similar, but right now the hurt is too close, and I don't want to make announcements before close friends and family are fully in the loop. And frankly, I just need time to recharge, rejuvenate, and find Hope again. So, wish me luck, I promise I will be back soon!
