goodbye

As much as I hate to say this, the time has come for me to stop blogging on olive & a so that I can focus on my family and school. It has been a decision I knew I had to make but have been putting it off for a while. I've finally come to terms with it but it still makes me sad. I love blogging as it has allowed me to learn more about myself, feel inspired, and "meet" new people. I hope to be able to blog here again in the future.

I really just want to thank you sweet readers for reading. It's been two and a half years since I started olive & a and I've loved getting to know my readers over that time. I truly appreciate the comments you leave and your nice emails, they all make my day.

If you still want to keep in contact you can always email me, find me pinning away over on pinterest (email me if you want an invite to pinterest), and on facebook as I may post links to things I am loving, sort of like the mashups I do.

I wish you all the best and thanks for reading olive & a!

This definitely hits home with me because there have been many times when I wonder if it's worth it and if I need to focus more on my family...I'm proud of you for making this decision to put the most important people in your life first! That is a really hard decision to make...Just know you will be missed her in the blog world, girl!!!
