In Conclusion

17 Jun

Well, my friends, it has to come time for me to say adieu.  I never thought that I would have so much fun being a book blogger, nor did I realize that I was going to “meet” so many great people online and in the blogging world.  Reading through some of the best childrens books during the past year has been an amazing literary journey, but now I must start on a different type of journey.

My husband and I are in the process of adopting a sibling set of 3 children.  Over the course of the past few months, we have started preparing our lives for these children, and one of the hardest decisions I made was to discontinue The Literary Wife.  While I absolutely love blogging and sharing my love for reading with friends through this medium, I want to ensure that the majority of my time is spent with my children, caring for them and giving them the attention they need to recover from the traumatic few years they have experienced thus far in their lives.  I will definitely still be bouncing around, reading posts and commenting when I can, but I hope that I have your understanding in this new endeavor.

Thank you for your faithfulness to reading this blog and encouraging me in my reading challenge and my life challenges along the way.  Happy reading!

    Will be sad to see you go, but don’t blame you! You’re going to have your hands more than full. Hope we’ll still be able to chat occasionally when you have a free millisecond 🙂

    Love you so much. I stopped blogging, too, during our adoption journey. Sometimes it’s just nice to turn a few extra things off, take a deep breath, and experience the seasons of life. I’m glad I have other ways to catch up with you, though! 🙂
