A temporary break…

I have taken the shopping cart buttons down temporarily so I can rest a bit and heal from a back flare-up. This time will also allow me to work on some business items that need to be researched.

If you read the SF Chronicle article and my blog post about it last fall, you’ll remember that I crushed a vertebra in an accident years ago and had major back surgery with a long spinal fusion. My back flares up periodically if I sit beyond my tolerance, and the best thing for it is just to rest it to let the inflammation settle down.

A few years ago I had to take an extended break (ending in March 2011), but that was different because of a family situation that was going on at the time. I don’t face anything else like that right now, so this recovery should go smoothly.

I’ll also be working on the new scent formulas and taxes. I can’t wait to finish the next two natural scents. I tested the Spiced Citrus Vetiver last night and loved it; the formula is done and just needs to be scaled up and batched.

If you need anything during this time, feel free to email me and I can take care of it for you. I can’t say for sure the exact date I will put the cart back up, but I am hoping it will be just a couple weeks. Thanks so much for your patience!

      Thanks, Brie! I worried that was TMI, but I knew people would think I was nuts for taking a break right after a release, and I didn’t want people worrying that this break was like the one two years ago. I should be caught up and feeling better soon.
