As "Pretty Little Liars" came to an end Nia Peeples has joined the cast of "The Fosters" for season 5 which starts broadcasting in the U.S. on July 11th 8/7c on ABC Family and Freeform.

Nia also announced on Facebook that she was taking a 2 month Sabbatical to Peru.

Nia said: As most of you know, I have been on walkabout for the past 2 years. Walkabout historically refers to a rite of passage during which one would journey into the wilderness for a time to listen, and basically, return to the essence of who they are. And I am so grateful for your company as I have traveled. For me, it has been a profound experience, each and every day offering up opportunities to identify and release ways of being that no longer serve me or humanity to the fullest potential.

For most of my friends and family it has seemed radical: living day to day without planning, not producing much, nowhere to go, nothing to get or achieve, very few goals. In this western world of “achieve, achieve, achieve,” this is Radical indeed. And yet most of my friends desire the experience themselves. Deep within, “Radical” is calling them, because radical actually means a return to ones roots or origin. And our greatest desire is to embody our inner truth and our unique expression of it. 

In a few days, I am headed to Peru. Then I will be tucked away in nature for a couple of months, completely unplugged and off grid as much as possible to listen more deeply and to complete “Confessions,” if the inspiration springs forth.
I will be silent on Social Media during this time, but please know that I will be sending you loads of love and light from wherever I am. There may be some updates, but only through email.

If you’d like to be notified upon my reemergence or receive periodic updates on my whereabouts, please sign up here.
I love you like crazy!

Erica Gimpel spent her birthday at the beach and had this to say on Facebook:

Thank you for all the birthday calls, texts, emails, cards, songs over the phone, and the numerous Facebook messages, they all touched my heart. I truly felt the love... What I've come to see, feel, and know is... What truly matters most is the treasured connections and friends I've made along my life's journey. I am deeply and truly grateful. And to those of you who had to walk a few miles to find us on the beach, thank you. 

 As I begin my new year around the sun, I am grateful it started at one of my favorite places, with some of my favorite people, beholding the first sunset of my New Year.... This holds great meaning for me. Peace and Much Love Always💜💜
