A few month’s ago, I started thinking about starting a new blog. I have had a blog since 2007- The French Elements. It initially started out as a business blog but quickly turned into a blog about family, friends, travel, etc. As my life changed and things became more hectic, my blog fell to the wayside.
Last spring, I started blogging again, Not many posts but it started to feel right.
July 1st, 2015, that changed. My youngest son passed away and I was shattered. I did write a few posts after that but it just didn’t feel right. It didn’t help that “crazies” left very unkind comments. I ended up removing the comments and then disabling comments all together. A sad commentary.
Hubby and I have moved into a new phase in our lives. We always talked about moving to Europe. I was blessed to live in several countries and always hoped to move back to Europe someday. Last October we spent some time in Spain and decided the dream would become our reality.
Obviously, retirement (or a lotto win) needs to occur but we know it will happen (if it doesn’t we will be in Heaven and that is ok too). This blog will be kind of a “journal” on making the dream the reality.
If you are reading this, I am tickled pink. I have enabled comment moderation just in case of crazies. I have to tell you it took forever just to figure out how to log into blogger and figure out what I was doing. 2007-2016 is a long time.
Hopefully I will be able to figure my way back.
Always big hugs,
P.S After a few posts, I moved from Blogger to WordPress. Many thanks Rena for moving my blog. It looks fab and feels right.
