So long for now.....

I thought about just walking away. But, I have too much respect for you, my dear readers to do that. I didn't make this decision in haste, but rather thoughtfully over the past month until I was sure. This will be my last post.
.
It's been an adventure for me to write this blog, to be more public with my feelings and opinions than I ever thought possible. Sometimes that's exhilarating, sometimes exhausting. Yet, always thought provoking.

It doesn't mean I don't want to hear from you, I do. This is the contact form on my website. Need help, have a great story or just want to chat? Write me and I'll send you my email.

Sometimes to make room for the things you love, you have to give up the things you like.

Kiss the ones you love,

ps If George Clooney ever wears my cuff links on David Letterman, I will be back to tell you!

Ohhh. I will miss reading your posts, Sherry - I have really enjoyed and appreciated them. Big hug! Brenda

Mary said...

too funny because I gave my blog up about 2 months ago....just over it...am probably giving up Etsy, too...take good care!

Rebecca said...

Well, Sherry... we are on the same wavelength it seems. I posted a couple weeks ago about removing myself from the computer for the most part... giving myself ONE hour a day for all things computer... new listings, website upkeep, blog, Facebook. It sure has cut down on what I do while sitting at my desk, so much, in fact, that I hadn't even been to my Google Dashboard in over a month, I think. But I checked today... and there was your new post with such an intriguing title. Enjoy your time out there, make the most of it, be creative, be present in the lives of your friends and family, and above all... be true. I've enjoyed your posts and I'm thinking I'll check in with you from time to time.

I'll miss hearing from you on the blogosphere, but I'll "see you" around your shop. Take care and good for you...this post was a lovely reminder that to do the things we love we must sometimes give up the things we like!

BlackStar said...

Yours was one of the few blogs that I actually read, so you will be missed.
I do know how you feel. I've cut back on everything associated with my computer.
Too bad that you and Rebecca don't live closer. We could spend some of our new free time hanging out.

Hi Sherry!
I totally understand, but am sorry that this chapter is coming to a close. Are you still thinking about the blog with Cat?
You are such a super sensible woman and I know this choice is probably the best for you. I do want to stay in touch with you--I feel like we were really just getting to know each other! I have appreciated all the feedback you have given me and I would like to support you however I can. Please think of me when you need some feedback or whatever!

"Sometimes to make room for the things you love, you have to give up the things you like."
You said it!

Best Wishes Sherry!

Sherry said...

You guys are so flippin' amazing, but you already knew that.

Yes, I would love to keep in touch!

Catherine Ivins said...

Oh boy- you are doing it! Well, I talk to you most days, but will still miss this blog because it was always so dead on with what I was feeling and going through, but I am 100% behind you and totally understand this decision! I think we are all just so burned out from the blogosphere! I do wish I could clone a little Sherry, who could blog advice all day long ...

Kate said...

Good for you! I'll be in touch often to pick your brains no doubt for parenting tips. I wish you super well and will miss your posts, its an inspiring move.

I'll really miss your blog - I love your work and find you have such insightful posts. But I completely understand where you're coming from - it's a juggle on a good day to try to create and blog and etsy and have clean underwear everyday! Thanks for always stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments and hopefully we can still keep in touch. xo

Oh Sherry...(Yes, I did totally burst into song for a minute.) I will miss your musings, but I will certainly stay in touch. Be well, be loved, be cool!

xox,
T

Pretty Things said...

Oh wow! Did not see that coming.

Enjoy your time!

Waterrose said...

I will so miss visiting you here sweetie.. But I do know where to find you. I also understand, I think... I have also been contemplating the best use of my time. I could be writing a novel, rather then a blog...

Sorry to see you go Sherry.

DancingMooney ♥ said...

Oh Sherry! I will miss you and all your wonderful posts! *sniffs* But I SO very much understand. I've been lately wondering if I should walk away from blogging as well to be honest.

I took a break in August, and I felt guilty for not missing my blog at all! But I did miss reading about all of those I've connected with through my blog, so for now I continue to blog.

*sigh*

You will be missed, but I know how to find you!

Miss Val's Creations said...

I hope Clooney wears your cuff links! How great would that be?!?!

Katie Gates said...

So Sherry... I'm behind on my blog reading so just came across this, your last post! I have enjoyed "getting to know you" and I look forward to seeing two of my favorite men on TV, one of whom will be wearing your cufflinks! I wish you the best in all your creative and life endeavors!!!

Byron Bay Productions said...

oh, i just found your blog. and I really like it. And it's over! Feel a bit sad. Like I just met a kindred spirit for a brief second. Good luck!

Barbra said...

I totally understand but will miss your perspective.
Hugs to you!
