see this little girl? she's harnessed to me in this photo. she's protected... and that's important. i'm going to write this post with as least emotion as possible.
i hate to do it, but i have to make this blog private.
i love to write--it brings me happiness and relief. it allows me to express myself in a way that i can't do when speaking. i can be free, and i can be myself. writing is who i am, in a way. i also love my daughter and my husband. goldie has become the single most important thing in our lives, and it seems like since she's been born nothing else really matters. i like that. we know what's important, and we're very thankful for how much we've been blessed. we've been tossed and turned emotionally since the end of february with things that i will not discuss on here (not things involving us as a couple, but things happening against our family). i'm in protection mode; call me mother bear. as dear as all of you readers are to me, i can't continue to have this blog be public. some things are just too precious. i love my blog. i love sharing my life with you, and i love that you share yours with me. it's been a good ride, and maybe one day things will slow down and i will be able to trust those around me again. but until then, private it is. leave me your email if you'd like to continue reading. i'll do my best to make it work for everyone. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, just in case you ever need me.
well, it's pretty obvious that i can't invite you all. wouldn't that be nice? so i've decided to create a new blog so that we can all keep the party going. this blog right here will become private, and i will post about goldie, my family and friends, and thoughts/experiences as well. the new blog will also be thoughts and experiences, but also things that purely inspire me.
if you don't receive an invite to view this private blog, please don't be offended. understand that it is what it is, but this new blog will basically be the same thing--minus most family stuff. i think it's going to be great.
so follow me on over to the new blog. i'm glad this is going to work for everyone.
