A Bittersweet Goodbye

Hello Family, Friends, Readers, and Fellow Bloggers,

I have a pretty big announcement to make!! I have decided to stop blogging!! I have always said that I would blog until it was no longer fun and unfortunately I have reached that point.

I have been blogging since March of 2009 and have enjoyed every minute of it until recently.

Honestly, it started to take up too much of my time. I realized I wasn't scrapbooking as much as I want to, I wasn't reading as much as I want to, and I had started to get frustrated with how much time it took when making a new recipe! A lot of people don't realize how much time blogging takes and kudos to all you bloggers out there that have been doing it way longer and post all the time!!

It actually took me a couple weeks to make this decision and I kept thinking that I'd change my mind, but unfortunately the thought of giving up my blogging makes me feel more relief than anything else! I get to start cooking and baking new recipes just for fun! I can trade in the time I'd be editing photos and writing posts for reading and scrapbooking!

I want to thank everyone for all their support and interest in my little ol' blog! It really has been a fun experience and even though I won't be writing any longer I will still be an avid reader of blogs!! If I follow you don't you worry I'm not dropping off from the blogger world completely!! I will still be checking in often and reading all my favorites!!

I feel the need to recommend a couple recipes and one book to you before I sign off -

The Violets of March by Sarah Jio - Go out and get this book immediatly! It's one of the best books I've read in such a long time! It's an amazing story that keeps you guessing and keeps you completely involved from the beginning!! I highly recommend this book and give it an A++++!!

And here's a couple recipes that I've tried recently that are a must make :)

Breakfast Sandwiches - making the eggs in the oven was genius!

Pumpkin Mac N' Cheese - this recipe was pretty involved but so delish! It was a little rich so you won't each much and I highly recommend a salad on the side, but if you love Pumpkin (as you all know I do) then you must try this recipe!! Did I mention you include bacon?

Well folks I have enjoyed sharing wonderful books and delicious recipes with you all but it's time to wrap this post up!! I've been putting off writing it for a few days cause once it's done it's done!

I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving, where you eat lots of yummy food and spend time with family!!

Enjoy the Christmas season, you all know we definitely will!!

And a Happy New Year to You Too!! 2013 is going to be a year of relaxation and free time for the Chuckles and I!! I hope it's an amazing year for everyone!!

Awww I am so sorry to read this.
But I totally agree with you it is a lot of work to blog, and if your not happy doing it then you shouldn't do it.
All the best to you :)
