This is our last blog post. Despite the previous post, which announced the continuation of this blog into this year, I will not continue writing for greyandbriannas.com.
I started this journey a year and a half ago, by documenting our hike up Brokeoff Mountain on the Fourth of July. Since then, this space online, has blossomed into a place where we cataloged our favorite recipes, trips taken, family events, and even the birth of our son. I have enjoyed every bit of it, and am so glad I published that first post seventeen months ago.
I nurtured my love for photography, writing, and cooking through this blog. I don’t want this text to come off sounding sad, because the truth is I still like those things, as a matter of fact, I still enjoy blogging…very much, and may even blog if in the future if God asks me to. Now though, is a time to draw close to Him and my family. Time is the greatest gift we can give anyone, because we can never get any more of it.
After this blog is gone, Grey and I will still be in our kitchen debating whether to put crushed pistacios into the brussels sprouts, like we did on Christmas night. We will continue our journey of cooking and eating nutrient rich foods. …and we will still be loving our little man like crazy. I’ll still be writing him monthly letters to his future self, and showing him the wonders of this world. …I’m just not going to publicly blog about it.
I feel honored to have written this blog for those of you who have invested the time to read it. I am thankful for extended communication with people through social media, blogs, e-mail etc. to share and connect with friends, future friends, and family.
This life is an incredible journey, and I pray you never stop growing, learning, and seeking God. For me, this year marks a fork in the road, and my call now is to deepen my relationships with family on a more personal level. I am not sure yet, what He has planned for our little family, but I know it will be wonderful (Jeremiah 29:11). ….and… that He is asking me to devote my time to building a stronger relationship with Him (James 4:8), and to love people (2 John 1:6)…and, for now, that’s all I need to know.
I hope this blog was a blessing to you and your family, and pray that your time is well spent.
Love, Grey, Brianna, and Greyson.
