My husband and I have separated and I will likely be returning to the work force in a few months. In order to earn some extra money, I plan to stock my Etsy shop as much as I have time for. I considered closing my blog but I sincerely enjoy blogging so I’ve decided to keep the blog going, although I may not have time to add free images every day.

Sorry to hear about your separation. I’ve been through it and survived. I hope you find the strength to keep positive and “follow your heart” to a new happiness.
Julie it’s always tough to hear someone going through what you are. I wish you the best through this change, and just remember the old Winston Churchill quote: “If you’re going through Hell, keep going.” Hopefully it will get easier to transition. There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.
You have a beautiful blog and truly beautiful images – and I will keep coming over to visit, as I know many will. I love your Etsy shop – and speaking of, I need to get my butt over there right now!
Take care and even though it might be terrifying, you’ve got many friends and supporters on the net ~

Sending love and hugs your way Julie. xx
So sorry to hear your news.
There are no perfect marriages and it is tough at times, seemingly no place to run.
Keep busy, visit friends and have a prayerful disposition James 1:5
Perhaps in time you may find a way to reconciliation.
with great appreciation for your kind work for all of us

Thank you for all the encouraging words and uplifting messages! Although I can’t even begin to guess what the future holds and it feels uncertain and scary from this vantage point, I do believe that, one way or the other, it will all work out and something good can come of this.
I will pray for those of you that are going through similar heartbreaking situations.
Susan Sherwood says
Sorry to hear about what’s going on in your life.
All things DO work together for good, but it’s difficult to remember sometimes when things are scary and uncertain. Be kind to yourself in this time. Stay close to God in prayer, and spend time with family and true friends 🙂 I know that you will find your way.
I hope that you are able to keep going with both your blog and etsy store–they are such a joy and an inspiration!
I wish you all the best–personally and professionally, and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!!
I’m so sorry about the rough time you are going through. My heart goes out to you!
