A belated welcome to March!

I read blogs and I see such creativity and beauty and honesty.  That’s what I want you to see when you come here.  It used to be.  I used to have some really great things to offer.  What happened?  No, I am really asking.  What happened?  NotQuiteJuneCleaver is just sad.  Not me, NotQuiteJuneCleaver but this blog NotQuiteJuneCleaver.  Sad. Sad. Sad.  Neglected.  And I miss what it used to be.  So, change is in order I suppose.  This blog is not magic.  It cannot change itself.  It cannot write itself.  It can’t read my mind.  So I suppose it could be said that it is my fault.  I mean, if we are assigning blame.

I think my state of mind, of being is reflected in the last two years of blog posts – or the lack of blog posts.  At one time I had as many as 20K hits a week.  Unbelievable.  Well I suppose I could just say that was yesterday, this is today and close up and go home.  But I don’t want to. I want to create and share.  I want to write and share.  I want to be a part of this big old world that has been made smaller by bloggers.  We can meet for coffee and conversation without traveling across the globe.  We can make friends that we would never have had the opportunity to meet.  Sometimes we even have the opportunity to meet new found friends in person. Sometimes with mixed results.  But our lives are made richer all the same.

I miss doing interviews and bringing women I admire to you, my readers.  I miss doing contests and giveaways.  I miss doing reviews of good (and bad) movies and books.

So with all the changes my life has seen in the past two years, NotQuiteJuneCleaver got left behind.  I feel really bad about that.  Honest and truly.  So…here we go again – I hope you will continue to check in, subscribe to my blog, comment when you can and I hope to bring lovely things to you again and again and again.

HAPPY MARCH! This month will bring great changes to my life.  A move to the city.  WOW.  I still can’t believe that.  ”Tis true.  The movers will be here on the 20th.  Lots and LOTS of things to do before then.  Lots of giveaways will result.  March will be a very busy time for me so I am going to approach a few old friends to see if they would guess blog for me to not only bring lovely things to you but to help me get back in the groove.

Much peace and love to you all and thanks for stopping by.

Susan – There seems to be so much pressure to keep up in everything in our lives. I am still here and I know many, many others are as well. Life happens and it happens behind the scenes. At times, we bloggers are too busy living our lives to record our lives, to blog. This is okay. You will reboot when ready, when inspired, and we will all be right here. I am struggling to reboot. In my life, I am starting over and even thought about abandoning (un)Deniably Domestic for something new. My bestie convinced me to move on. She said I don’t owe anyone an explanation and I don’t have to look back, just keep going. This is what I am trying to do. Want to do something together – a weekly linkup? A theme? We can support one another. ~Kelly

Great minds! I was just writing you an email when this came up! I am contacting a few of my old blogging friends to see if they would be interested in helping me breathe new life into NotQuiteJuneCleaver. So the answer is YES! I am going to finish the email to you right now. THANK YOU! XOXO

Great minds indeed Susan! Life is what it is. We, who love you, will always be here, whether you write once a week, or once a month or once a year! I count myself priviledged to call you friend. Exciting times are ahead. New house (and a gorgeous one at that!) I can’t wait to see what you do with it! Love you to pieces. xxoo
