Moving On

It is the first day of 2009. I find myself in a completely different place than I was when I started this blog. We've finally attained our dream of starting a family. This blog has been a great source of comfort for me. It has allowed me to process my thoughts and emotions while at the same time tapping into an amazing online community of women I never knew existed. Women who don't even know each other and yet support each other with every ounce of their being. Women who let me know I was anything but alone. This blog has also brought us closer to some of our friends and family. Sharing our journey has been incredibly rewarding in so many ways.

Because I know how other blogs have helped me, I hope that this little blog of mine has helped others and will continue to help others. So I will leave it where it is, out there for the world to see. As for me, it is time to move on.

I still want to continue to write as I don't want to leave behind the support and connection we get from blogging. So I've created a new blog to chronicle this next phase of our lives. Because I now have two other little lives to think of and they didn't choose to have the details of their lives out there for the world to see, I feel the need to protect their privacy a bit. Therefore, my new blog will be invite only.

If you wish to continue following our journey, please leave me a comment with your email address and I will send you an invite to the new blog. Please state in the comment whether or not it is okay to publish the comment so that I know if I should publish, or simply get your email address and delete the comment. If you happen to already have my email address, please drop me a line and let me know you would like to be invited. I know some of you have already mentioned that you want an invite and even sent along an email address. However, it would be easiest if these were all in one place, so please leave me a comment here as well.

Until we meet again.

*ETA*  If you have requested an invite and have not received one, please refer to this post.  If you still feel that I have overlooked you, please post another comment for me (I may have forgotten!).
