Adventure is Out There

Well I have a confession for you today. I have been cheating on this blog. My time and attention has been diverted elsewhere (if ya hadn't noticed!) and it has caused me to be very unfaithful to posting here as often as I would like.

It's not like I haven't been writing - quite the contrary. I have been a WRITING FOOL for the past several months, although it's not all been clicking keys around here....

I've been journaling like crazy, sharing a lot of my thoughts with a notebook instead of unleashing them all on the internet.

And then there's this whole cheating business....

I guess it's time for me to tell you all that there is a new blog.

It's a different blog, with a different name, and a different purpose. And it's been eating up a lot of my free time lately as posts keep coming to me and I keep writing and writing and reflecting on all of the things that I want to share. I had NO intention of ever starting a new blog, but one day God said to me...

"Adrien, start this new blog."

So I said, "Okay, God. I will. Later."

And he said, "Nope. Now. Now is the time."

"Are you sure?"

"Yes, Adrien, I am God."

It literally did go just like that. Yes, God speaks to me, and maybe you'll find out how...on the new blog! Haha. The truth is I'm going through a lot of crazy things right now and I had been thinking that, you know, maybe I should wait until life settled down or I had a few more answers to things before I jumped right in to start sharing the things that have been on my heart lately. But God. He wouldn't leave me alone about it, so here we are.

To clarify, the new blog which is called Standing Still (for many reasons that I'm sure will be explained over time) is in no way a replacement for this blog which I dearly love. This will still be the place where family-oriented memories are shared. This blog has been intentionally kept very small and shared with family and friends.

The new space is open to anyone, and while the content is DEEPLY personal to me, it won't be plastered with pictures of my kids quite like this one is. :)

My plan is to consistently upload at Standing Still on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So while there isn't much there today, by tomorrow there will be another post to read and share!

Whether or not you're a fan of this space or that one, both or neither, I hope that you will occasionally pop in and see what's going on! If only because we're pals, right?  Haha. Here's to new adventures. Thanks for checking in with us, and happy reading!
