So Long

I've been putting off this post.

I have been pretty quiet around here.  I've typed these same words a time or two in the past few months.  The truth is I've been quiet because this mommy blog season might be coming to an end.  My online presence has been less and less and initially I was scared to let it go but I’m ok with that now. 

I have changed so much since I began this journey with this post in 2012.  I never knew just by sharing who I was I’d find a group of friends who shared my struggles, my heart & my faith.  I've become more confident, more accepting, happier and more free.  I've become more creative and more thoughtful.  I've grown into a bolder woman for all that I believe and stand for.  At 32 I like who I am. 

I rediscovered my love for writing and found a voice.

I will never be the same because of Sarah, Christina, Brooke & Britt.  I love each of you so very much.

I'm grateful for Andi for encouraging me to get started in the first place.

As I say goodbye for now to The Houtz House Party I bid you all very best wishes, prayers and love as you continue writing your story.

  10. Oh How sad....I am sure you are making the best decision! I wiHi friends,

    OK I have been in a blogger nightmare the last few days. My .com was high jacked and I have been trying to work out all the kinks so
    Google friends connect and feeds will still work. I think I did it!!!!

    Even if you already re subscribed once IT IS NOT WORKING. I had to adjust some sight settings and you need to do it again.

    Anyway I want to ask once more time that you would visit my new URL and resubscribe through which ever reader you uses.

    This is the instructions to resubscribe through Google friends Connect

    Go to my new address

    Go to Google friends connect and sigh in,
    Then go to options, sight settings hit stop following this blog (on the right hand side)
    Next refresh the page
    last re-follow the blog

    I am so sorry for the hassle. I love the relationships we have built through the internet let keep them going!
    Thank you so much for your support and understanding!
    Teshall miss you!
