Big News…Today is Bittersweet


Hi y’all.  I hope you had fabulous holidays and 2014 is treating you well.

As many of you know, I have once again been MIA.  I have tried and tried to get back into the swing of things around here, but have found that my heart isn’t in it anymore.  Most of you know that a lot has changed in my life over the past year and a half (a divorce and two moves) and I am very proud to say that I have grown and evolved greatly during the transition.

I feel that it is time to finally let go of the old and allow the new to flow into my life.  I have heard the knock for awhile, but it is hard to let go of something you truly love and something that has taught me so much and at one time brought me so much joy.  I have the best readers, and you are the reason that I have struggled with this decision.  I am blessed for each and every one of you.  Thank you for being with me on this journey.

I will end this blog today, exactly 3 years after starting it.  I began writing on my 30th birthday.  It has taught me so much, way more than I ever could have imagined.  It taught me how to trust in my interior design skills, it helped me learn, start and grow a graphic design business (which I will continue). It helped me reach out and connect with like minded folks when I needed it the most…and it taught me how to blog and market and so much more.

I am excited to say that I am not leaving the blogging community…just growing, evolving and following new passions.

Today, I am starting a new blogging journey.  I hope you will join me at Fresh Living
