Remember in Forest Gump when Forest was the running man? The man who runs and runs and runs, and then suddenly, one day, for no reason, stops? I think I may be done.
This is post number 501. Coincidently, it’s also the two year anniversay of Dandelion Mama. Almost 100,000 of you have checked in on my life over the last two years- and that is both flattering and a little frightening- why on Earth would my life, my ordinary, messy, simple life be so interesting?
Many fabulous people have come my way via this blog- people who are now real, flesh and blood friends, whose faces and children’s snapshots grace my refrigerator. I have learned about myself, have journaled my children’s lives, a cataclysmic pregnancy and a joyful birth.
But lately, I have been phoning it in.
And I just don’t want to do that. My life is so much more hectic than it was when I began Dandelion Mama. What was a lifeline for my creativity and thought-spillage has of late, been not serving it’s intended, desired, and ultimate purpose.
For now, I will still be on permanent staff at MMW, and will continue to write parenting posts for those fabulous ladies and friends. There are absolutely blogs I will continue to regularly read- and keep up with your lives. My archives will remain open, for the time being.
To those of you who have given me so many lovely words, gestures of friendship, and kindness, over the last two years, I kindly and warmly bow my head, and say, with genuine and deep sincerety, Thank YOU.
So, with a tender heart, and a little trepidation- but suspecting it is, indeed, time, I bid you farewell.
All is Well- and Much Love,
