The End: My Last Post

1 0

After over 12 years of sharing my thoughts, lessons, and personal life happenings at, I’m officially closing up shop and archiving this website effective today, July 7, 2018 (my 33rd birthday).

For 11 years we’ve met right here on July 7th to reflect on another year past and share hopes for the year to come. And here we are again doing our annual thing here for the last time.

Two years ago, I would’ve never imagined this day would come. I launched this site in March 2006 I was in college and knew about as much as a blank piece of paper. Yet! You stayed and stuck it out with me as I practically grew up in front of you!

I mean seriously, in my first post, “Thankful For Where I Am…” I used the number “4” in place of the word “for.”

Clearly text messaging was taking over all forms of modern communication at the time. *shakes head in shame*

As I’ve reflected on our years together, I’ve felt a deep sense of gratitude that we’ve been able to journey together all of these years. The readers of this blog have been absolutely amazing.

Here’s Just a Piece of What You’ve Done:

So THANK YOU!! Thank you 100,000 times over. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of readers and supporters. And I hope this isn’t “goodbye” for us, but that you’ll each come along for what’s next.

So What Is Next?

Now I know you’re wondering why I’m shutting down this site.

There’s really only one reason. It’s time for something new!

My husband and I have decided to start a blog together! I’m so excited for you all to get to learn more about him and hear his heart on so many topics. Plus, he’s totally got me beat with the wordplay and communication skills so this should be some fun and challenging reading for us all!

We’re going to write some posts collectively and some individually. We want to bring you into the conversations we have every week over dinner or on a long car ride. We regularly discuss articles, books, music, sports, race relations, culture, marriage, dating, a whole gamut of topics and we want to open up the conversation to you!

So I’m excited to announce that my annual birthday blog will be continuing on our brand new website,
