I’m not one to apologize for an absence. Or write cryptic posts that leave you guessing what on Earth I’m even attempting to speak about. But I guess there is a time and place for everything.
Sometimes life throws a curve-ball your way when you’re least expecting it and you’re left with two options: dodge it and wait for it to happen again or let it hit you head on so you can deal with it right then and there. Today, and moving forward, I’m standing tall when the curve balls come my way.
Yesterday something happened to my family that will ultimately change our course in some way or another. Good or bad, there’s no way that it’s continuing on the same path that it has been. I’m not really ready to talk about it and I may never be (and out of the respect for my family/loved ones, I’m not sure that this is the appropriate forum for that), but I felt like I owed it to myself to get this out there. To force myself to accept a true need to step back, refocus, and move forward with life in whatever way I need to. Instead of just pushing forward and hoping that somewhere, somehow I’ll find the answer . . . it’s time to make time to find the right answer.
I’m not planning a hiatus. I’m not ending the blog. I’m not doing anything beyond temporarily closing the After Nine To Five Decor shop and pushing the launch date of the Gnarly Whale back a week while I’m there for my family and myself.
For all A9T5 Decor shop orders prior to today and giveaway prizes – everything will be shipped out early next week.
For those expecting things from me - I will get to it when I can, I promise.
For the new Gnarly Whale launch date - We will now be launching on Tuesday September 11.
I have some really awesome giveaways coming up for you over the next couple of days that I’m co-hosting with someone wonderful ladies so be sure to check back each day for those. I’m looking forward to the long weekend myself and I hope you all have a spectacular three days off!
