Saying Good Bye

Hi Everyone it's a beautiful sunny day here today - nice warm breezes blowing in off the ocean and we have been spending the time outside enjoying it.  Fall is definitely on the way - finally.  And I am excited to be able to spend more time out enjoying it.

Today I am sharing a most difficult post with you - one that is hard for me to write. I have been fighting with this decision for a bit now and finally after much quarreling with myself and knowing what the right thing to do is - I am closing the blog down. I have been blogging since 2011 - 4 years and it has become part of my life - you all have become part of each of my days and I am truly going to miss every minute of it.

However, I am having some health issues and need to concentrate totally on making myself better for my family.  And since the blog requires so much time and effort - it's time to say goodbye so I can spend that time on resolving these issues. I will miss you all but I am continuing my Face Book Page so I can keep up with what you are doing and maybe share a thing or two I am doing with you. Please be sure to come by and say Hi occassionally.

I want to thank you all for your support and loyalty over the years.  You have become such great friends and I have enjoyed working with and chatting with each one of you over the years.  

See ya on FaceBook and remember get out there and create something you love.

  1. Oh no, I hate that you're not going to blog anymore, please at least keep your blog open so people can still see your posts.


    I hope you get better and I'm glad you're going to still be around on FB.

  2. Lou, I plan on leaving it open just so people can see what I have done. Maybe when this is all over I will be able to pick it back up but not right now. I will definitely be seeing you on FB and Instagram - love all your wonderful pics.

  9. Cathy,
    I am so sorry to hear this. But I do totally understand. I wrestled with this same decision last year and realized that if I did not make major changes in my life,my health would continue to go down hill as it had been doing over the past few years. Please take care of yourself and Be Well. As no stranger to major health issues, I know what a toll it can take in one's life.
    I will be watching your face book site and I am sending love and prayers your way. Thanks so much for always stopping by and for taking the time to leave sweet encouraging words on my blog. That truly meant a lot to me.
    Best wishes and if you ever need to talk, please email me .....

    Many hugs,
    Deb
