Farewell Readers!

I’ve delayed writing this for a few weeks now. I wanted to be sure.

Part of me is not quite ready to say goodbye to this blog but life has changed a lot from when I first started it and I’m not very good at doing things half way. I’m the type that likes to do things 100% and if I feel like I can’t give it all I’ve got then I’d rather not do it at all.

This blog has served its purpose and I want to thank you for your support! When I started this blog, I was living in a small, rental property. I had one little baby boy to keep me at home but not keep me busy full time. I needed something to pour my energy into so I dreamed about food and recipes. I love to bake so spent hours experimenting with new things. It became my hobby. Stan gave me a camera for Christmas and I actually had time to play around with the settings and watch YouTube tutorials. πŸ˜‰

Fast forward 3 years and we’re in the process of fixing up our very own home. The landscape needs a ton of work, there is touch up painting to be done, huge projects to tackle this winter…..you get the picture.

We’re involved with the youth at church so rather then laying awake at night dreaming of peach pie (okay, maybe I still do sometimes! Haha) I’m planning the next event or praying for someone.

Not to get long winded or anything but I guess when I look at my priorities in life, this blog just didn’t make it very high on my list. It was fun while it lasted and I enjoyed it but life has filled up and sometimes you have to cut something in order to make room for the more important things in life! Maybe someday I’ll pick it back up.

My little family is so dear to me and I want to be involved in every aspect of their growing up years.

We went camping this past weekend and it was so relaxing, refreshing and fun. It’s times like these that I just want to live in the moment and soak every bit of it up. They are already growing up too fast.

I want to thank Charlene Waldner for contributing her delicious Trim Healthy Mama recipes to this blog. You inspired me with fresh ideas.

I’ll keep the site up for a few more weeks to give ya’ll time if there are any recipes you’d like to print out before it’s shut down.

Thanks again for your support and making this a positive experience for me! – Joy

  3. It has truly been a joy to read your blog and enjoyed you recipes. Little did I know when I started following you that we would sort-of become connected family. It warms my heart to see you connecting with your children and husband; keeping priorities straight is always a challenge – ask me how I know!
