Before God showed His plan for us with regards to kids, I especially wondered how God would use me, if He was not calling me to be an earthly mother. When we moved to Minnesota, I in a way, went through an identity crisis. We had just left a pretty difficult situation behind, and here we were, in a new state, with a new start. That meant new opportunities and almost a starting-over process.
Minnesota in March is pretty chilly, so I found myself at home. Often. Wondering how to fill my time. I decided to foster a dream of mine, which was to start an organizing blog. At the time, I had our personal blog, but I found myself being even more intrigued with organizing and how to live life with less.
That is when I decided to start my own small business with a blog called Organizing Life With Less. I have absolutely LOVED being an organizing blogger and have learned more than I ever imagined, met some incredible people, and realized that in creating this blog, I became even more content. I discovered the type of life I really wanted to live - a life with less.
Over the past 2 years, I have spent countless hours developing Organizing Life With Less and when I look back, I can't believe that dream actually came true! It took a lot of hard work, but again, it has been completely worth it and I am a different person (for the good) because of it.
Well, now I have entered a new chapter in my life; being a mother to our absolutely beautiful daughter (okay, maybe I am a little biased). Since having her, I have realized my time looks very different, and I want it to stay that way. I do not have the time to keep up the organizing blog like I need to, and I am okay with that. I just didn't want to give up all the hard work I put into it. All of those posts! All of those pictures!
Even though I have decided to stop blogging for Organizing Life With Less, all of those posts are now imported into my personal blog, which is www.dksterk.blogspot.com. It is a new chapter that I am excited to embark on - and that is living life with less. Living with less commitments, so that I can be the mother I want to be!
I have enjoyed the past few years blogging for Organizing Life With Less, but it is also time to close this chapter too. So thank you for being a faithful reader and supporter! I have loved all of the challenges, giveaways, guest posts, and opportunities that Organizing Life With Less has given me, but it is now time to enjoy even MORE time with our baby girl! I do plan on still writing about organizing when I get the chance on our personal blog, so head on over there!
So, thanks again for all of your support, sweet comments, and faithfulness in reading this blog! Now it's time to start a new chapter and time to live my life with even less...
