I'll Be Right Back, But First A Preview


Things will be pretty slow around here for the next couple of weeks, but I’ll be back on July 15 with a vengeance. If you’ve been following the blog using Google Reader, you already know that it will be gone after today. I’d love to keep you as an e-buddy, so please be sure to subscribe by EMAIL, FEEDLY, BLOGLOVIN, or you can follow using Google Friend Connect at the bottom of the page.  
What will I be doing over the next two weeks? 
Preparing myself for my new life. Planning. Tying up loose ends. Being still. Taking a quick vacation to refresh myself and disconnect from responsibility for a moment. Breathing it all in. Praying. Centering myself.
During the second half of July, I’ll be introducing some new features to the blog. I’ve already hinted about the new Crush series. But since I can’t keep my mouth shut when I’m excited, I have to tell you how thrilled I am to be featuring the work of two beautifully spirited women who make jewelry and accessories. The future state of Crush will showcase the work of creative entrepreneurs that I admire as well as other products, services and places that I love. 
If you have a product or service that you think AML readers would appreciate and is in line with my mission to encourage creative living and authenticity, feel free to contact me at ggrenee [at] allthemanylayers [dot] com. 
I’ll also be introducing a new series: The Introvert Diaries. I’m still receiving emails about this article and the overwhelming response has had me reeling with ideas for how to engage this niche audience and keep that fire burning. The Introvert Diaries will be a series of essays designed to continue the conversation. It’s not just for women who identify as introverts either. The anecdotes, tips and insights will be helpful for anyone who appreciates their need for solitude in order to maintain their emotional health. (Hint: That’s ALL of us.)
More to come, chicas. For now, I’m checking out, but you can probably find me posting on Instagram and Twitter here and there while I’m away. I love you like sliced bread. xo
