The Time Has Come...

I've been thinking on this for a while now. I began blogging even in the days before blogging was a thing. I wanted Damaris to have a way to know what the months before she was born were like, so I started writing letters to her on our website. She'll be 16 in October, so it's been a while. Over the years, there have been time when I've blogged more frequently and times when I've blogged less frequently. I've shared good times and bad times. It's been a journey just as I've been and continue to be on a journey.

However, in the last couple of years, I've been sharing myself online in lots of ways (links below) and just don't feel the need to blog anymore. It's not because I don't like writing (I still write quite a lot in my bullet journal and other places online). It's just become an obligation for me to blog, whereas in the past, I blogged because I wanted to.

So, this is the end of blogging for me. Does that mean I'll never blog again? No, if I come to a time where I think and feel blogging is right for me again, I'll start up again. But for now, for this time, and this place, this is goodbye. I have tons and tons of gratitude for those who have followed me over the years and read my work and commented. I appreciate each of you!

My pal Winnie the Pooh says, "It’s always useful to know where a friend-and-relation is, whether you want him or whether you don’t."
