Freedom Fridays with All My Bloggy Friends - The Last One.

Freedom Fridays Gray Chevron PARTY

It is with great sadness that Evelyn and I are announcing the end of Freedom Fridays. We have both come to a point in our blogging life where something has to give in order to make time for other things we want or need to pursue.

I can't speak for Evelyn, but I know I need to refocus on some things. Number one being learning how to take a break from blogging from time to time .... I feel like lately, life has just been passing me by. My kids are growing up too fast and my blog has become my life. In addition, I have a few health issues that need to be addressed. Other than a few posts here and there, you may have noticed that I have been largely absent from the blog and posting lately. I have taken some time away from the blog and social media so I could evaluate what my next steps are. As much as Evelyn and I hate seeing Freedom Fridays go, we both know it is the best choice for us both at this point in time. I'm hoping to be back up and running in whatever my new capacity will be in July. I hope you'll stick around and join us for whatever the future holds!

We have enjoyed having each and every one of you stop by and party with us - and we are so fortunate to call you our friends! Just as we have enjoyed your posts here on Freedom Fridays, our readers have enjoyed seeing your recipes and projects on our social media pages too. I can't thank y'all enough for making this party as successful as it has been!

Even though we won't be hosting Freedom Fridays anymore, I still love to share great stuff from around bloggy land! Please, feel free to drop links on my Facebook page! Although I cannot guarantee shares, I do pull links from there from time to time.

  3. Hi Jamie,
    I have enjoyed your parties from the very beginning as single parties then after you merged the two parties.

My very best wishes to you and I will hope to continue to see you in bloggerland!!
