{It's not goodbye, it's hello} For my dear readers an announcement.....

Many of you know that I write another blog and some of you may not. I've been in thought for some time about the future of my blogs, what I want, where I want to go. I have so many hopes and dreams for the future some of the dreams I've shared here, some I've shared over there (my other blog). The more I look at my future, my hopes and dreams within the blogging community and outside of it one thing I'm reminded of is doing what works for me.

I started this blog as part of my healing process after I lost my twin girls Elle and Meg, I've shared it all, all the nitty gritty, the heart breaking stuff. But I've also shared some glorious journeys as well here, through becoming a mum to my Cohen and Sarah. I've shared personal successes as well setbacks, again I've shared it all and all that has been put at my feet to walk through.

If you haven't worked it out, in the time you've been a part of this community, I'm a dreamer. I like to dream big for the future, I want to be so many things for me, but for my family, but I also want to help others, I want to relate, teach and be of service. With this blog I've had so many hopes and dreams, I've had a long term desire to create a space here that would be place for others to turn in a dark hour through pregnancy loss. I've hoped it could also be a place in time I could assist with breastfeeding stories and support and cover natural parenting topics. As well as being everything it is for me and more, and for you.

I've been assessing my goals lately and the vehicle for me getting to a place to achieve them, these aren't just blogging goals, they're life goals as well. It is an extremely emotional thing for me to be contemplating this, but I no longer feel that I can take Journey to Bliss in the directions I want to, all by its self, when I have attentions focused on My Vintage Vow too. But it works both ways, I feel as though my efforts over at My Vintage Vow are held back, by keeping two such huge parts to my life separate.

So what does that mean, to you, to me, to us? You've shared so much with me, you've supported me, cried with me, cheered me on and loved me. I don't want to say goodbye. What I'm working on is expanding and incorporating my blogging efforts, so that all my wonderful supporters here and at My Vintage Vow can get to know more of me, the whole me. The vehicle I will be concentrating on doing that with is My Vintage Vow.

I want to invite you to join me on the next step to my Journey to Bliss and come join me over at My Vintage Vow, as I try to incorporate my two worlds into one. It's going to be a lot of work, a lot of tweaking and rearranging but I'm sure I can do it. But I'm asking for your patience, because you're important to me. At this point in time I am also tossing up several options for what will become of all the content here.....that's the emotional bit, my baby girls are here, my Elle and Meg, my breastfeeding journeys, the birth of my children. I also want to honour these journeys and incorparate them where appropriate and have them continue to help others faced with the same or similar challenges I have faced.

In the initial stages of making this all happen and possible, I won't be continuing to blog here on as a regular basis as I have. I will keep you informed of developments at the moment, but the best place for you to see me starting to weave these two lives of mine together will be over at My Vintage Vow. When decisions have been completely made about the future and content of Journey to Bliss, you will be the first to know. I will be ever so thrilled and honoured if you join me over at My Vintage Vow and embark on this new journey in finding my bliss and balance in life and this bloggers world.
