Everything Must Change
Ah, the New Year, a time of fresh starts and little changes. You will notice a few little changes around here as we start 2015. First of all, I will be saying good bye to the Morning, Noon and Night weekly post. You might see the occasional post from me, it just won't be weekly. I welcome you to continue, if you feel inspired to do so, and I will definitely pop in to take a peek if you do. Thank you to all of you who participated, it was lovely to stop by your spaces to see little peeks into your day.
Second, and the biggest change around here, is that I will be here less often. I have thought long and hard about this one, and it wasn't easy. This place serves as a journal of sorts, of our life and the path we walk. I have came here almost every day for just over three years to record little parts of our lives, not everything, but the parts that I want to look back on, the parts that made me smile, and sometimes, the parts that I struggled with. It honestly is a joy to write in this space, and to share with you, but I feel a need to step back. In July of 2014, I decided to shut down all of my social media accounts in an effort to find more time and space in my life. It was something I planned to do for a month, and here I sit, five months later, and I haven't gone back. My desire to continue to find more time and space in my days, to maybe slow them down a bit, is the reason I will quiet myself in this space a little. I am not quite sure what that looks like yet, I will definitely be participating in the 52 Project, and the rest, well, that will fall into place as we move into the New Year.
Thank you so much for being a part of my journey as a mother. Mothering is the single most amazing thing I have done in my life. It has changed who I am, made me a better person, and honestly, completely changed the course of my life. I can't imagine doing anything else, and I can't imagine having a better group of friends to share this journey with. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for stopping by each day to read what I write, for taking the time to comment or send an email, for sending letters and little packages, and for just being here and sharing my journey with me. I hope you will continue to pop in and enjoy the ride with me.
