I keep coming on here to update our birth story for publishing, but for some reason (beyond an immediate need of Little K that I’m attending to) I cannot share it at this time. Throughout my winding road of blogging I have always felt unsure about how to share while respecting the privacy and innocence of my family life. Numerous blog names, formats, general themes, etc. – like I was renting and not ready to settle in to a home…
At this time I feel done and I’m not sure if that will change…
I will be keeping up on all of you and my e-mail address whimsicalbird[at]hotmail[dot]com is always open – as I’ve already promised a few, when/if I return I will let you know if you ask to be added to the list (my about page will also have any new information/stuff, too), but don’t worry I know how time passes, how life and needs evolve… I have so so appreciated all the wonderful e-mails I have received, especially in the last few days. Thank you. Rest assured, everything is lovely but I find myself soaking up every moment of my 15 pounder (he will be 3 months next Friday and my gosh has the time flown) with little desire to do anything that doesn’t enhance our family life.
At this stage of my life, blogging doesn’t do much for me anymore – at least this way and at this time.
I began blogging desperately wanting a child and waiting for the right time sometime in February ’07, I blogged through the pain of our February ’08 miscarriage, and shared a few tidbits of our February ’09 conception. My pregnancy really brought out the need to protect myself and our family, which for me includes limiting their exposure on the internet, and almost 1 year to the day that we conceived our sweet little boy, I end it.
Full circle and happy.
I know for many that the journey doesn’t end so smoothly, but there is always a new song playing with dance steps to be learned and my hope for you (as it is for everyone) is that you’ll find the joy in the ordinary, the lessons in the pain, and the sparkle in the night that gives way to the amazing possibilities that we cannot even conceive of.
Love and much happiness:
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

February ’10. Thank you.
