Hi! And goodbye! I'm moving (virtually)

our daughters (cousins!) jumping into a big cold lake

Hi there. It's been a loooong long time since I've posted up here...  In case you are interested, I am jumping into something new and moving my online home to this new site where I will sporadically post about various adventures in painting, family, and whatever else may randomly come to mind, when I remember to do so. (I know, I've made that sound tempting).

I speak for both Melissa and myself when I thank you so much for being a part of our lives for the past few years. Your comments have made us laugh, stimulated thoughts, and supported me through my random, stumbling self-improvement projects and various maternal crises. Thank you so much for being a part of our lives and for never judging us. Thank you for reading my rambling run-on sentences and for letting me tell you weird stories about my children. Thank you for enjoying Melissa's gorgeous photographs, furry clay creations and clothing designs with me. Thank you for teaching us so many things and sharing your insights and your favorite books. We feel amazingly blessed to have connected with a community of such tremendous women.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When I saw the title of this post, I was saddened...but glad to know Lynn will continue to post. I've so enjoyed your snippets of life. Thank you for sharing. It's given me things to ponder, fun books to explore with my children, and projects to consider. Best wishes to you both.

I was just thinking about how I loved being bloggy friends with you two and missing your voices.
I'm glad that Lynn will continue, and I hope that Melissa will come by occasionally too.

Thank you for the laughs (there were many!) and the boundless inspiration found here.

Sugar City Journal was one of the first three blogs I "read" and followed. The Princess and the Pea diorama was the first thing I found on the internet that made me overly excited to create- I spent the next 8 months looking for old clock cases to make one myself. Thanks for all of the beautiful things over the years!

It was SUCH a pleasure to read each and every Sugar City Journal post. Thank you for giving your readers so much beauty, inspiration and nourishment over such a long time. I'm hopping over to your new space right now...

Thank you so much for sharing some of your beautiful world with us for so long. I think Sugar City really helped usher in a new age of blogging, though I admit I am so glad that you stayed true to blogging for the sake of beauty, creativity, and sharing -- not for the click-through ads and paid gigs at mommy blogger conferences. Cheers to Sugar City Journal! What a lovely legacy.
