Time for Change

Good morning friends!  Today I’m going to talk about change.  I’m not really a fan of change, which is why I’ve put this post off for a long time.  Honestly I love getting to hang out and share with you every Monday through Friday, but in this current season of life I’m finding that it’s just too much.  With my daughter being the beautiful, busy age of 3 {almost 4} I feel like I just can’t keep up right now.  As a family we are also spending more time with the awesome girls at the nearby “safe house” {read that story here}.  I feel like my heart and my time are so torn between having a good blog, that people want to visit every day, and what God is up to, and how he’s working in our family. 

It’s a battle I struggle with daily because I want to be the best I possibly can be for you, but I also want to give as much time as possible to what God is doing in and through my family.  So after a couple months of agonizing over this decision, and putting it off because I wanted to be able to do it all, I am faced with reality.  I can’t do it all.  Yep, that’s right, I’m not Super Mom!  Dang!

So starting this week I will personally only be posting 3 times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I know 2 days isn’t a huge difference but announcing that I’m going down to 3 days a week makes me feel like I’m letting you all down.  There may be weeks when I have a lot to say, so I post an extra day, but for now I’m going to try to cut back to 3 days a week.  I still have my awesome contributors that will post most Tuesdays, but you will only see new posts from me Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

I hope you will see this decision as me wanting to write the best content possible for you, not me wanting to spend less time with you.  I love all of my readers and I am so incredibly blessed to have one of the best jobs in the world.  I am so thankful that all of you read my blog and keep coming back for more, I can’t even tell you how much it means to me!

If you want to see my post for today please head over to Tatertots and Jello today and say hi!  I’m over there sharing my delicious Sea Salt Caramel recipe.  Trust me this is a recipe you won’t want to miss, everyone will love these delicious caramels!

  1. One of the things I struggle with is accepting that I’m can’t do it all! So I think it’s wonderful that you are moving on and putting your family’s needs first. I’m sure your daughter, as well as many others, think you already are Super Mom! :)

    Oh and thanks for the recipe!

  2. good for you! it’s all about balance!! :) :)

  3. Good for you for finding what works best for YOU! Take care of yourself and then everything in your life will improve!

    Faith and Family should always be first. Enjoy them with no guilt. We understand, and we’ll look forward to M.W.F

    You absolutely need to do what is best for you and your family. I prefer the blogs I read a lot to post a little less often, because quite frankly I just can’t read them all if they post every day. I am trying to run my own blog, I have two kids at home and a life outside of the computer. Add reading in blog posts and keeping up with social media and I just don’t have time. I am trying to be more present in my real life as opposed to my blog life. I think the most important is the quality of the content, not the quantity! :)

  6. May I say this is probably the most impactful blog you have EVER written. You have become a staple in many of our lives and we have become better homemakers, friends, cooks, etc as a result. Now you are setting a very important example of making the choice to put your family first. GOOD GIRL! We all need that reminder to take advantage of the short time we have as moms and pour into our kids. You will NEVER regret making this step.
    I am so proud of you!

  7. I love your blog, it’s one of my favorites. I love your consistent helpful hints. And you are right, two days is not a huge difference. I will look forward to your posts on your new timeline. It takes a very wise woman to know when she needs to cut back a bit to take care of herself and her family, before she feels too overwhelmed! Enjoy your time with your family and loved ones. We will still be here!

  8. I totally understand the conflict you are having w/ being pulled in sooo many different directions! Just wait… As your daughter gets older and IF you have more kids… then you feel lucky somedays to get your teeth brushed! And mine are 18, 12 & 10…. Personally, I would rather have quality (w/ anything) over quantity! You also need to make some time for YOU. Or you won’t do anyone any good! (Easier said than done somedays)

    You know what you have to do! So don’t struggle w/ it! Everything will work out like it should!

  9. Good for you…follow where God is leading you!

  10. I so hear you, Anna! When I dropped from writing my blog daily to only twice a week, I literally went into withdrawal. It hurt, but I knew I had to clear the table to make room for my book to launch.
    Will still look forward to your posts, my dear!

    • Thank you Martha. Yeah a book is something I’ve been wanting to do but I just haven’t had time! Hopefully now I’ll be able to get around to it. :)

  11. You decision is such a reflection of my heart at this very moment, too. I regret reading your post at my work desk (wink*) Tears welling up in my eyes, but good for you for listening to HIM! I am so honored to have found your blog these past few months and will look forward to any number of blog posts you create. You are a gem. Thank you for stepping out of a comfort zone and being the example for many others around you! WELL DONE.

  12. You can’t argue with God’s guidance! I’m amazed you’ll only be cutting down to three days. As I read all you do I expected more cut than you’re doing. I have less going on in my life; it’s just full of a family with an assortment of chronic illnesses that wax and wane but never disappear, So my posts are erratic but I hope those who read what I write come away with something. I certainly respect your putting Him first. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

  13. The lat few years I’m shameful, I just can’t seem to get control of my sewing room mess — I’ve never been this bad before. My storage room is now shared with my husbands Fly Tying supplies and table — I have vintage sewing machines and I’ve tried organizing- re-organizing, so many times and each time it’s never any better. Does having a clean sewing storage area mean I have to get rid of my stash — no matter the cost? I’ve tried plastic bins – (non see through able), changed to see-through; no bins just stacked then when I pull out the fabric the fabric on top topples over…..wanting to be organized again doesn’t seem like I’ll get there
