Time flies when you're having fun!

Time flies when you're having fun...or are super sleep deprived...y'know, whichever (c;

I can't believe so much time has gone by since I updated my little corner of the blog world! It always starts out as "I'm just going to take the week off..." and before you know it, it's been two months! 


I'd like to introduce you to little Leah Beth, she's three weeks old today and I can't even believe how fast time flies with a baby! It seems like every time I turn around she's changed again and I just want time to STOP. That's a possibility, right???

Meeting little sister for the first time...
And the only picture I have of all 3 of them (well, all smiling...):

And that brings us to now...

I have been going back and forth and have written this post a thousand times in my head, but couldn't bring myself to put my words into an actual post...because that makes it *REAL*.

I always told myself that the second that blogging didn't feel like a hobby, like something that I really truly *wanted* to do everyday, I would let it go.

It sounded really easy.

But it isn't.

I have loved and nurtured this little corner of the blogosphere for a long time and it felt like part of my identity. I have had so many amazing opportunities and experiences thanks to this little blog, definitely not the least of which is all the amazing friends that I have come to know and love through this fabulous blog community.

I absolutely adore every single one of you that have brightened my day through your amazing posts, inspirations, comments...y'all are the best! I wish that I could do a blog friend tour and hug every one of you that has made my life better by getting to know you.

But at the end of the day, my heart is in a different place now and I've finally made peace with that fact. I really hope that someday life brings me back to the blogging world, but even if it doesn't, it will always hold a special place in my heart. 

P.S. - If you want to know what I'm up to, I still use my Instagram @allthingsbright3 fairly often and would love to still keep in touch with everyone!

Long time reader, first time commenting! Congrats on your new baby! She’s adorable! Just wanted to say that your blog helped me with my lack of style! I bought a yellow pencil skirt, wore a striped shirt with it & I get a ton of compliments about how cute my outfit is. I can’t take credit because I saw it off your blog! Never in a million years would I buy a yellow skirt! Don’t hesitate to IG more cute outfits. It helps fashionably challenged peeps like myself! I wish you all the best in life! God bless.
