There was a catch to all that growing though - it only happened with my responsibilities and not my daily hours! When Tales of a Castle was launched, I had many hours at my disposal for writing, blogging, picture taking, etc. But 386 posts later, we have embarked on the busiest year of our lives up to this point, and I will admit that there is no use pretending anymore. . .I do not have time to blog.
My emotions are bittersweet about this scenario since there will be many memories lost in the shuffle of life, but there are four little men in the making who need all of their mama's attention. And since I am not into half hearted blogging on my end, I think I'll close this chapter for now.
As Bilbo Baggins says, "I feel like butter scraped over too much bread." (Or something like that. I'm too
lazy busy to look it up. :-) I have enjoyed all the friends I have met on this avenue and loved getting better acquainted with my old ones. Thanks for all of your reading, kindness, and comments over the years! (Has it really been years?!)
Following this move from Virginia (and the baby is older), I may start a new blog chronicling life after grad school as I have many ideas for my next house. I have called seven different places home in the last 12 1/2 years, and I am ready to put down some roots! My excitement is bounding as I think of creating a haven/fun spot for my big man and little men, but with the knowledge this place was temporary, I just put decor and other things on hold. Yes, I still love thrifting, creating new items, color, color, color, and I hope to release all that energy in the next castle! :-) I love sharing my new ideas with others (and convincing my hubby they are not that whacko!).
For now, as Bilbo said in his farewell birthday address,
"I wish you all a very fond farewell."
