onwards and upwards


I'm done here, guys. I wish I had it in me to write some lengthy post about why I'm finally quitting and how blogging has affected my life, and blah blah blah, but I just don't. I haven't had it in me to write anything here for quite some time, and the last thing I want to do is force myself. Also, Cheech is starting school next year, and it's time to give her and her family (meaning Joe and I) a little space and privacy. But before I go, a couple of a little bit lengthy things.

- You guys are my everything. I mean that from the absolute bottom of my heart. Some of you have been reading since before I was even married, which is insane! I am forever grateful for the time you've spent in this space and allowed me to share and rant, all while always being supportive. These past five years have seen lots of ups and downs, and I'm fortunate to have always felt that I could say anything so openly on this blog. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

- I've met and befriended the best people through this blog. Truly. Never in a million years would I have ever thought that that would or could happen. You know who you are. I love you so much, and will continue to do so until the day I die. Or, until the day you get sick of me loving you. But even then, you better believe I'll put up a fight. Because I love you. SO MUCH.

And with that, I say farewell. I'll miss you guys like crazy. And maybe one day, I'll be back. Or, maybe I won't. Or, maybe I'll start another blog. Hey, the sky's the limit. 

Love, love, love,
C

P.S. Just because I'm quitting blogging, doesn't mean I'm falling off the face of the planet completely. You can still keep up with my shenanigans on IG. Also, Happy New Year.

  5. I'm certainly glad that I found your blog all those years ago and that I got the chance to hang with you and that gorgeous girl of yours a few months back - one of the highlights of my time in the States. Your posts will definitely be missed but I'll be playing along on IG. Happy new year to you and your goodlooking family. xx

  17. I've read over the years and I'll miss your blog. Your blog even entered conversations I've had with friends. I'm sad, but I do have instagram so I'll consider myself lucky in being able to see adorable snaps of your life.

  18. Sadness. I have lived this blog for almost five years. Holy shit, is that true? Yes, it is. But I get it. I don't have time to go to the bathroom by myself anymore, never mind write a blog post. I'll follow on IG and hope for pop up posts. Ps. Thanks for all your amazing advice on my now defunct blog.
