Winter Specials

I’m a girl who loves season changes. I would be hard pressed to live without beautiful fall leaves, the first magical pre-holiday snowflakes, or that glorious spring day when the sun shines warm and coats are optional. But this time of year, the winter stretch, when the twinkle lights have disappeared and the charming white fluffy holiday […]

This makes a lot of sense, Jen. I’m thinking of doing the same thing. You have a beautiful family and they are so much more important to focus on now. Love to you all!

I went off Facebook for a few months last year and it was wonderful! I had a more positive outlook on life because I wasn’t obsessing over anything and everything, and I had time to concentrate on the things that ARE important to me.

And of course I will not stop reading and waiting for your wonderful photos, both personal and professional 🙂

I wish I had your self control and will power. I have been thinking about getting rid of Facebook for a while now but I am just too addicted 🙁

Stay strong, seester.

Thank you for all of the support, ladies! It’s funny how often I go to sign on to Facebook without even thinking…what a habit it had become. This is an interesting experiment…it’s forcing me to take a closer look at my blog and website and other online tools. We will see what happens next, but I appreciate the comments!
