Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

NOTE: I am still designing blogs and accepting clients!

I've gone back and forth about whether to continue blogging, and I've come to the conclusion that I ultimately just don't have the time for it right now.  I've been delaying writing this post in hopes that I can come back in full force, but it's not in the cards at this time.

It makes me sad because I have loved blogging: the keeping up with people, the meeting of new people and the outlet it provides.  Hopefully, soon, I will be at a time and place in life that requires loads of photos and blogging, but right now I'm going to let go and enjoy these precious moments that go by all too quickly.

Thank you to all who have read and followed and stuck around!  It's been fun.

And because it's never a true post without photos:
Joy Boy

All the cousins

And all the family (on my side)

half-loving/half-jealous sister dog

 slow down!

 showtime

blessed.

Catch you on the flip side. :)

SO nice to see you, your husband and son in your family pic! Cannot believe the photographer managed to get a great shot of ALL of you smiling at the same time, even the kids. That's amazing. I also especially love the first shot of Joy Boy! GREAT smile! He's simply adorable!

Hi Carolyn,

I have been following your blog for about two years now, all the way from Australia! It has been great to check in every couple of months and see your beautiful photos and inspiring posts. Although it's sad to see you stop blogging for a time - fantastic decision to spend time with your family, time passes by so fast. I'm sure you will continue to do great things with your blog design business.

Thank you and take care x

What a beautiful family! I will miss your posts. I completely understand how you feel...The time moms have with their babies is so brief you have to enjoy every moment. Wishing you and your family the best!

Hate to see you leave but love to watch you go...

Just a quick note to say hello and that the picture that inspired this room is my son's nursery. So fun to see it on your site. Checking back a few months later I noticed your son wearing two outfits that my son has too! We were meant to be friends! Best wishes to your new journey. Kudos for closing down your blog.
