I just wanted to write a short and sweet post to let you all know that I’ve decided to leave this little corner of the internet, at least for the foreseeable future. It hasn’t been a sudden decision, nor a conscious one. It has happened gradually, and I feel that things have come to a natural end. Over the last few months, I’ve been reluctant to begin any new projects and writing posts has become less and less appealing. For me, blogging has lost its spark.
As we head towards September, a quieter pace of life is heading my way, and I feel excited to spend that time doing things that I enjoy. I want to start going swimming regularly, I’ve booked my first singing lesson (which I’m very nervous about) and relax a little more in the evenings. I feel proud of this blog that I have created, and content with the things that I have shared. A lot has changed in my personal life since I started this blog, and it’s wonderful to be able to look back on so many memories.
Is this it? The honest answer is that I really don’t know – it could be, it could not be. In six months when we’ve moved house and I’ve had a break, I may feel inspired again, but I’m going to play it by ear and let it be. I’ll still be using Instagram (not so) regularly, and you can find me here.
One last thing…thank you so much to everyone who has ever read my blog, shared it, commented, liked it, loved it and especially to those who have expressed their love for it in person – even though I probably looked awkward. It really has meant so much, and I cannot thank you all enough. I’m so thankful for all the opportunities and income that this space has provided for our family. It’s been an interesting journey. I have learnt so much and connected with so many inspiring people, and fantastic brands. I will always be so thankful to them, and I’m so thankful to Jared for always being so supportive.
Oh just one very last thing…following my recent trip to Leros; Blog Authentic have set up a fundraising page. It would be absolutely, ridiculously amazing if you could donate anything at all to such a worthy cause. Leros Solidarity Network and ECHO 100Plus are run entirely by volunteers, and they do a marvellous job. The volunteers have hearts of gold.
Thank you so much you lovely bunch and goodbye…at least for now.
