Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge! 

This challenge means a lot to me, and you all mean a lot to me! 
We've had so much fun together over the last 3 years, haven't we? 
I want to continue bringing you fun

that delight your creative mojo, 
but in order to do that,
at the level you've come to expect, 
I need to take a break and recharge my batteries.
