I’ve been a bad blogger. I’ve been cooking. And I’ve been taking photos. But that’s only 2/3’s of the food blogging equation. That final step, the writing, has not been happening. So I’m going to take the month of January to relax and recharge. Hopefully when I emerge from this hibernation in February my head will be full of stories to share.
Until then, I’ll be highlighting old posts from Exit 51 for you to get your regular BAH fix. I’ll still be flapping my wings over on Twitter, skimming the blogs in my Google Reader, and responding to comments here.

We all need a break now and again. Enjoy it. I look forward to a refreshed Wendi in February! 🙂
Amber, if only I could manage a month long break from the office…talk about refreshing.
I agree, we all need to recharge at some point. Enjoy your month off!
Thanks Jen. I hope the stories come out of hiding so I can get back to writing.
Enjoy your blog siesta, Wendi. Everyone needs a little time to regroup and recharge, especially after the holidays.
Indeed. I think I’m going to send my imagination on a vacation somewhere warm and sandy to recharge.
I suggest pretending you are in Aruba. I’ll send warm & sandy vibes your way from there on the 22nd.
Good luck Wendi! I look forward to seeing you back in February, fully recharged!
Beth, I’m definitely looking for some inspiration during my hiatus. I’ve been so blah about cooking lately. Maybe I need to hit the bookstore and find a new cookbook to light a fire under me.
Enjoy Wendi! It sounds like a great thing to do. We’ll be here when you get back!
Jenna, I’ll still be lurking and reading and everything else. Just giving myself some time to get new posts written…and maybe quietly regret all the cookies I ate over the holidays!
Rest well, see you here when youre back.
You havent been so bad, you did have a house guest!
Omawarisan, what do you think pushed me over the edge? It was The Jolie. But I enjoyed every second of her visit.
i feel you. i know i said on my FB fan page that new changes were coming on the blog space but i think that change will be some absence myself. it makes the heart fonder.
Lan, sometimes a little time away is the perfect change.
Enjoy your sabbatical, see you when your batteries are recharged Wendi 🙂
Good for you girl! Enjoy the downtime. I’m doing the same myself. Hope you come back refreshed and energized after some good downtime.
Erin, glad to know I’m not the only one stepping back for a bit. Hope you are enjoying your time away as well.
Hope you enjoy your month “off”… I’m sure it will be refreshing and renewing for you. And, you’ll be back to blogging happily in no time. I’ve been contemplating taking a blogging break, too. Let me know how it goes!
Jen, I’m a firm believer in creating some down time to mentally recharge. Every so often we all need a break…even from things we enjoy doing.
Oh my gosh I love that picture!! I am totally with you Wendi, I feel a little slow out of the gates too!
Elizabeth, that picture was from the blizzard last year. It’s amazing how a blanket of snow can make everything calm and tranquil. Maybe that’s the feeling I’m hoping to capture over this month.
Love the photo, Wendipants. Have a nice rest in January!!
Thanks hon. It’s now the 10th and I still haven’t written a single word of new material. I may be doomed.
