Goodbye...For Now

April 23, 2017

Recently, I had dinner with a good friend, who also happens to be a psychologist, and she shared some awesome advice about self-care; namely that it's incredibly important, and that I need to be taking better care of myself. I went home that night and mulled over her advice for a long time. It wasn't news to me, but for some reason her words really resonated with me, and I realized that I had some very important decisions to make, including one about this blog.

After much consideration, and changing and re-changing my mind, I have decided that, for right now, it's best for me to stop blogging here. I've loved blogging as the Savvy Girl for the past four years, but taking care of two little girls, running a freelance business, making time for my husband, and now that I'm pregnant with baby number three, trying to squeeze in naps is a lot of work and I just don't have the energy to commit to this blog the way I really want to.

I'm not sure what the future holds, or whether or not I'll be back here in a year (or three), but I'd like to thank you for reading. I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have had your support over these four years. Please revisit and bookmark your favorite tips (I know I'll be utilizing these tips when I give birth this fall) and recipes--all the content will still be here. Again, thank you so very much!

We've had a pretty busy spring break so far, from play dates to museum visits and even a trip to IKEA, where my littles enjoy "testing" all the sofas, beds, and desk chairs. This weekend we'll be celebrating Easter with family, which is always the best time. There are cousins and aunts and uncles running around and talking at the same time, the house is filled with laughter and food, and we all just feel tremendously blessed to be able to celebrate our risen Savior together. I wish you a Happy Easter, and God bless!

Spring break is in full effect! This week was sort of slow and relaxed for us Golden girls, but since a few of my friend's children are out of school next week, we're planning some fun surprises for the kiddos. Also, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous, so on the days when we don't meet up with friends I think I'll take my little ones to the beach for a picnic. This weekend we're taking them to their first play--Junie B.'s Essential Survival Guide to School, based on the character from one of my big girl's favorite chapter book series--and all of us, including my husband, couldn't be more excited. Have a wonderful weekend, and God bless!
