Much as I'd like to spread the cash around, I only pay for one blog here, and that is this one. I'll continue to subscribe until you decide to stop writing, which I hope is never.

65 sounds like a milestone to me - I'm only a few short years away myself - and I would say a good time to try something new! You are so talented - I'm here for it - and for your upcoming birthday!

A milestone that I didn't see coming! HA! I don't know how this happened. I 'feel' around 40ish (most days). Thank you so much for your support and the birthday wishes, Linda! xx

Thanks, Chantal! And no culture wars here. I'm kind of against all negativity these days - it's just too rough out there in the world.

No refund here Victoria. I think you know how much I love and appreciate the content you provide us. I was just thinking about this yesterday. For me, you are a much needed pivot from the chaos in this world. I’ll look forward to your words and gorgeous photos in the future. Take care.

😘 Excited for the new direction! I’ve been mulling one over for myself on this platform, too. I was told so many times “You make it look effortless!” Which is how perfectionists roll, but dear lord, it so much work behind the scenes to get there. Here’s to less late nights with tired eyes squinting at photoshop for you, V! 🥂 xo

Hahaha. I wish I could be a slacker, Jen - it's what I've always wanted. ;) But, no, I always have to have everything just the way I envisioned it - which takes hours and hours!

Thanks always for your support! xo

Hello, I am a relatively new subscriber to your substack. I enjoy it very much, and hope that you are able to shift gears and find a new balance. One thing I have noticed, you post much more content and more frequently than the other writers I have followed. Perhaps you can consider scaling back on the number of posts, but I do love the pictures and links you share with your comments. Good luck in the transition. By the way, I was once a visiting curator at Laguna Art Museum - beautiful place!

Hi Katherine, thanks so much for joining us! And yes, that's what I was realizing, too, so I will be scaling back, and hopefully offering still the same photos and links, but in a more condensed posts, rather than 2-3 posts.

And wow! What a fun job. It's a beautiful museum! :)
