New Beginnings and Old Goodbyes

I am officially closing this blog. It’s been dying for a while now. I knew it, but occasionally I would come back to post something that I thought needed to be said, or something that I wanted to share. I will forever be thankful for all that this blog, my followers and readers, and this…
