Goodbye and Good Luck

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 4 years since I started this blog. It was a whim, and a completely emotion response to my step-sister and father each having their own blogs. I wanted to be cool too.

I've spent some great time here. I've wrote some wonderful pieces, even if some of you don't agree. It's been fun, and work, and honestly my heart hasn't been in it in a long time. Sure, I'm still writing, but everything has been more for me than for the blog world.

September 21st I'm launching a new blog. I feel that it's more of who I am now and where I want to go from here.  It's still about my love of cooking, and being crafty, and it will be full of snark, we can't forget the snark. Its about finishing things and doing the things that I always said I would do "someday" and I've created a bucket list for the end of my 30ies. I've made both personal and professional goals as well as stuff I've always wanted to do. Like going white water rafting and staying at a bed and breakfast. It's about not waiting for someday.

Of course it won't be all about my journey to turning 40, it will still be me, without the anonymity. I'll be sharing recipes, and craft projects, both good and bad, and my outlook on life in general. I'm not going to wait until "someday" to do the things that I've wanted to do. My friend Andi has shown me that life is so short and that we aren't promised "someday".

So, for those of you who are interested. Send me an email at lifebeginsat30 AT (except you know @) and I'll gladly send you a link to the new website, but since I get more messages from spammers than actual people, I'm not going to post the link here. Besides, I'm not anonymous any more. Gotta hide from the weirdos (Hi Mom!). No fake names of friends and family. No one was real here, didn't you know?

The new blog officially launches on September 21st with a fantastic giveaway. Fantastic I tell you!

That same day, this blog will cease to exist. It will just be a fond memory of where I started. I'll be removing this space, so that I can give my new space my full attention, since my heart is already there anyway. It's me, in color and not hiding behind Abby. Its me, flaws and all.

Thanks for the last 4 years. Thanks for reading. Thanks for letting me spew my sarcasm and nonsense into the world. Thanks for helping me find peace, and perspective, and a place to voice who I am. I hope you'll join me on the next phase of my adventure.

Much Love,
Abby Normal
