Until Next Time...

I've decided to take a break from writing for a little while. 

In the last year, this blog has completely changed my life. I've poured my heart into each and every post... and as a result, I've been able to connect with so many amazing people. I've shared tears with you. I've shared laughs with you. I've shared my life with you.

It's been nothing short of incredible.

While I'm not quite sure how long my "writing hiatus" will last, I'm positive that it won't last forever. I could "break" for just a few days... or maybe weeks or months. Tonight, I really don't know.

But here's what I do know: the next time I feel compelled to write something... I'll know it... and then, you'll know it. Because I promise to share it with you.

Until then... I'm sure I'll miss this dinky-ole blog like crazy. And of course, I'll miss all of you.

Until next time...
-Ash

*In the meantime, I'll still be running Lucky Dog Rescue, which relies on donations. Please don't forget about my Lucky Dogs while I'm "gone."

    i have to say this post hurt my heart, i understand the need to "feel" what your writing, but your posts have kept my hope and spirit going, when i just didnt think i could do anymore, there would be one of your posts..you have been such an inspiration to me and the 6 foster dogs whose lives were spared because of your encouragement...im sure you get overwhelmed but we need you and words of wisdom..do not let the haters get you down, they are everywhere and only successful if we let them discourage our goals, be strong girl, the world is a better place because of you!
