with change comes... more change

I started this blog back in 2010.
Hard to believe now.
The last few years have seen me change from highschool girl to married woman... and they have also brought me to the realization that I am not the same person who first laid words on page at the start of this blogging endeavor.

I have made amazing friends and watched them grow; some with me and some away from me.  I have fallen in love with a man, married him, and given my heart to him.  I have carried, loved, and lost a baby.  I still spin stories around in my mind, but don't spend as much time writing as I did in past years.  I have been learning how to cook.  I have grown, back-slid, been picked up by my loving Lord, and started over again.  I have screamed into my pillow and laughed into the sky.
I have changed so much.
Writing this blog has been such a blessing.  But times change along with people and I have known for months now that I have outgrown "Maid for More".
Don't worry... I'm not done blogging.
Just be prepared.  All of my posts will stay here and my blog location will not change, but pretty much everything else will be different. 
I have loved "Maid for More" so much; all of the friendships, ministry opportunities, etc... but this blog needs a new look, feel, and name which, perhaps, will better suite the person I have become and encompass whoever I grow to be as life continues to change.
With this new year comes a new version of blogging for me.  I don't know what to expect from it, just like I have no idea what this new year will bring.  Please expect a continuation of my modest outfit posts, ramblings, pictures, and the occasional poem or recipe... but also be ready for even more of this girl/writer/poet/wanderer/dreamer as she- and also her blog- grows up!
I hope you will continue on this journey with me.  Your input, encouragement, and friendship is such a blessing in my life.
God bless!

I also felt the need for some change in my blog over the last few months, so the New Year saw me heading over to Wordpress to continue my blogging journey. It's hard to grow up so much, in blogging and in life, in so little time!

I hope your New Year is spectacular :D
