Moving forward . . . with a giveaway!

How is it possible that January and February have draggggggged on forever, but also sped by so fast I can't believe it is March 1st tomorrow?  My two months of daily blog posts have been a fun experiment, and as they come to the end I have been tossing over plans for the coming months.

Continue with daily posts?  Back off to a three or four a week?  I have enjoyed being in the habit of writing, and feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do with daily posts.  But life has been getting very busy.  I have had more than one person ask me, "How do you have time to do your blog?"  And the truth is, with the sewing and other writing that I want to do, I have decided that it is time to end my daily posts.

I am a little bit afraid that if I slow down, I'll stop altogether again, but fear is not a very good reason to keep going.  Now that I have done daily posts for two months, I know that I can keep on track.  At this point, I would like to have a little extra time to reflect on what I am writing.  A post a day can end up being a frantic "What am I going to post today?!" and that is not what I intend for my blog.  As I move forward, I do so with the intention of being more purposeful . . . more thoughtful of what I want to put out there.

I can tell you who will be glad that Mama is not going to do daily posts anymore . . .






Totally little girl hair, not toddler hair!


John and the kids have been very gracious and patient as I have had a busy couple of months with blogging, painting the bathroom and hallways, and sewing up a storm.  Taking a few days a week off from blogging will make these kidlets very happy!

So here we go, moving into a new month.  I will still be here, blogging away, it just won't be every day anymore.  To celebrate new beginnings and the coming spring (Soon, I hope!), I have a March 1st giveaway to tell you about.

Two lucky readers are going to win a new toilettries/pencil bag!  That's right, not just one, but two!  All you have to do is become a follower of my blog or "like" Ad Libs on facebook.  Want an extra entry?  Share a link of your favorite post that I wrote over the last two months on facebook, and be sure to tag me so I know you get an extra entry.  I will draw the winners at 7 p.m. tomorrow night (March 1st) . . . good luck!


The gray and red asymmetric bag is my favorite . . . which one would you like to win?
