End of Blog

I do believe that it's time to end my blogging phase. I haven't wanted to write for a few months now, and it looms in the back of my mind - thinking that I should. This has been an incredibly theraputic outlet for me, especially last year after Smitty died.

But....I'm putting some closure on that part of my life and leaving a few of my favorite pictures behind.

I was so excited to see a new post from you in my bloglines, then I was sad to read your decision. I understand, tho. Real life must take precedence, and I thank you for sharing part of your life with us, and wish you all the best for the future!

Maple, I will miss reading your blog and seeing your lovely critter pictures. Hope we can still keep in touch, it's been a joy getting to know you. (And I understand that when something is no longer "fun" it's time for a change)
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I am so sorry to see you stopped blogging. I will miss reading your posts. It was always good to hear what you were up to.

(Sorry I didn't post until now. I had a baby in Sept. and I haven't been reading blogs for the most part. It is the first chance I got to check in with yours.

If you need to see baby pics:
