Well, I went and did something I said I would never do. I just disappeared with no explanation. Sorry about that. It's been almost 2 years since I posted here. There are a few reasons for my absence. First, I moved to Instagram, posting a quick photo and short post appealed to the lazy side of my nature. I found a lot of my old blogging friends there and this little blog seemed somehow redundant and so much more trouble.
I think I also lost interest in blogging. It has changed so very much since that first day in 2007 when I sat down to write my first post. Remember when we gave away tea cups and aprons and just sweet little items that weren't expensive? Well, with the advent of the "influencer" things got more material. Big money, huge prizes and sponsored give aways just made those first sweet day brightening packages seem so inconsequential. Things started to seem more material and competitive. I admit, it eventually took some of the fun out of it.
At any rate, Thank you for all the years of sharing our lives and if anyone sees this 2 years later, just know I still think of many of you, you are friends. If you ever want to say hello, I'm over on Instagram under the same name. Kathyscottage. Thanks for all the years of aprons, decorating, and tea cup sharing. Barbara, I still use your crab apple jelly recipe, Penny, I still look in on you and I'm glad we haven't lost touch. BJ, Adrienne, Stacey, Patty, Becky, Julie and so many others, I'll see you over on IG.
Sending love and gratitude your way for all the years and all the joy we shared here at Kathy's Cottage.
