Good Morning!!



I have been getting emails and phone calls from some very dear Facebook friends wondering where I am. I want to let everyone know I am fine. No need to worry.
I thought I could quietly remove myself, but I guess it didn't go as planned.
;> )

You see, I had joined Facebook many years ago but decided to leave. I'm always talking about living simply and how important it is to enjoy nature. Yet I was spending much of my time with technology and quite frankly it was sucking the life out of me. That had to change, so I left.

Then last June my mom passed away. I wanted to get in touch with friends to let them know and Facebook was the best way to do it. So I tried to sneak back on for a bit. When I was "found out" I got such a warm and wonderful "welcome back" from some, I promised myself I would stay but only for one year.

Well, it's been one year. I kept my promise and left. I hope you all understand this is a personal decision. I have met so many wonderful people that I hope I can stay in touch with you somehow. Maybe with blogs? I'm guessing blogs aren't as hip and cool as Facebook or Twitter. But I like to blog. So I will stick with what I like... unhip and lame. ((giggle))

So there you have it. I hope this puts some minds at ease.
Thanks to all of you who contacted me with worry and concern. You guys are the best and please keep in touch when you can.

<3 I was scrolling through my friends list cleaning it up and you were gone :( but now I see why and I COMPLETELY understand.....I will keep up w/ you the old fashioned way though-lol! Hope the jeep adventure and new paint scheme are going well! I will miss you on fb but I too am seldom on and as my career life path are changing (hopefully soon) I will be on less and less as well.

I'm with you Peanut!
Even though I'm on Facebook it absolutely drives me nuts!
It's too busy for me. I like "SIMPLE". If it wasn't for the group I'm in now I wouldn't be on Facebook at all.

I enjoy reading the blogs. I wish more people would get back into it.

Sending you love and hugs my friend!
Audrey

Me too, Audrey! Probably wishful thinking, but I would like to see everyone get back into blogging. It's much friendlier and personable. ♥

Thanks, sweet Jinxie!! You know if I'm not painting a wall, I swinging a hammer. (And not at my sweet hubs) ((giggle))

Hey Stace!! Yes, please stop by and stop by often! I'll do the same. I always get the giggles from your posts! You crack me up!
I agree with you about FB. Sadly the negative on there outweighs the positive. I found my "light" was starting to dim. Not good for the brain. Or for the soul.

Dixie Dill said...
