May is always a tricky month for me. I think many of you who live in colder climates can relate. May is when the weather finally begins to moderate, and though we love it, it always brings an interesting challenge: how to adjust our daily rhythm to include as much outside time as possible!
Instead of the freedom spring weather should bring to our souls, it often brings the added stress of fulfilling all our indoor responsibilities even as we long to migrate outdoors (if only to keep an eye on the kids, who only come inside to sleep these days).
The transition to a new season cannot be complete until we let go of the old one. (<–Tweet that if you thought that was a surprisingly profound statement to come out of pregnancy brain fog. I sure did!)
For me, winter is a time where I snuggle down deep into writing and engaging in my beloved online community.
So, this is a little farewell for now. I find I need to completely let go of the online realm for a little while in order to discover how blogging will fit into my summer routine (instead of trying to get summer to fit in the cracks around my blogging, you know? just doesn’t work).
It’s been an awesome season here on the blog–new friends, deeper community, and publishing that book that God put on my heart to share with you. It’s been one of the most exciting seasons since I started blogging, and it’s been so delightful to be on the journey with you.
I’ll miss you, but I’ll be back. (You know I’ll be back. I just love people and telling stories too much to be quiet for long!)
I’ll be sending out one more newsletter before I pull the plug on my computer for my scheduled social media fast for the rest of the month. Sign up over in the sidebar if you want to keep in touch with me via email (yes, I will still be checking email! Hello!). Also, I’ve written a few guest posts that have yet to go live–I’ll have Jeremy post them to our facebook page when they do, so follow me over there if you
are addicted ahem, don’t want to miss anything.
Here’s to embracing seasons!
(is there anything you need to let go of to enjoy the present? C’mon–it’s fun!)
