My 7 month old Easter egger has been laying for almost 2 months now, very regularly, rarely with two days between laying. It has been a week now since she has laid an egg. Should I be concerned?? If so what do I do?

I wouldn't be concerned. It somewhat depends on where you are located. At some latitudes in the northern hemisphere, you could be getting 3 hours less daylight now than at summer solstice.
That change normally doesn't affect birds as young as 7 months but it definitely will in subsequent years.
An EE I had laid well but sporadically. She would start laying in January, lay 2 or 3 months and then take 2 months of but she laid very well for about 6 years till a mink killed her.
