Goodbye Felicity


As some of you may have noticed All Things Bright & Beautiful blog written by Felicity has sadly been removed. I recently had the pleasure of receiving a lovely phone call from Felicity letting me know that she decided to stop blogging due to the enormous amount of time it was taking out of her day and the time it was keeping her away from her beautiful family. She said she is already having blog withdrawals and is keeping a keen eye on some of her favourite blogs out there. I asked her if she might consider doing a guest post every now and then here at ABT and she said she'd think about it so {hopefully} all is not lost. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and will keep you informed as to her decision. Felicity we bid you farewell for now and "Happy trails to you until we meet again" - Dale Evans.

Sad to see Felicity gone, but for all the right reasons.
Hope to see Felicity guest posting soon though on ABT.

I get lots of emails asking about Felicity. We all miss her terribly! But, she has her priorities right and I admire her for letting the blog go for the greater good of her family!

Sending her big hugs...

I just discovered this myself! But I can certainly understand what she means. It does take time, and somtimes I wonder if I can fit in a post. Thank you for letting us know what happened, and wishing all the best for Felicity!

Thanks for posting this - I wondered what had happened. So glad to hear it was her choice. A loss for us but a gain for her and her family. She will be missed!

Oh Felicity and Anna, I do LOVE the sound of a guest posting every now and then! I hope you will think about this Felicity, it might just help a little with the blog withdrawal symptoms that I can only imagine you are going through. I'm glad you are happily no longer suffering from the back pain and family withdrawals, but now for a solution to your blogging withdrawals. Keep us posted! xxx

I've been clicking on her blog link over and over to see if she had come back. I'm so glad you posted that it was her decision and not anything else. She had a great talent for it but I understand the toll it can take. Wish her well we will miss her.

i wondered about that... and Googled all over to see if she'd just changed her name. It's good to finally hear from Felicity... it's a good reason to not blog anymore (to regain quality time with family)....

All the best Felicity.

Anna,

I too often think of pulling the plug. Blogging does take time however I cannot imagine my day without the support and kindness from the Blogging community. My family loves me more for it and besides, they need something to "tease" me about.

I really miss Felicity and hope she will return when she is ready. She is missed by many and I am thrilled she is taking time for her family. Lucky Family.

she erased her blog? what about all those great helpful hints - I would check those out! why erase it? I don't understand - awwww - those posts were so great, the helpful hints.

Villa Anna said...

I've been missing you Felicity desperately and waiting and waiting for you to come back. I'm sad you're not posting anymore as I ADORED your blog but I understand your reasons. If my children were any younger I don't think I would be able to keep up either. I will still hold out for your return someday. All the best my friend.

Anna :)

p.s Thank you Anna for this post :)

I agree it takes a whole lot of effort to maintain a blog, and it does take up a whole lot of time..

You will be missed Felicity!
