Hi, friends. It’s been a while. I have some great news!
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you’ll know that my life has been in almost constant flux for the past two years. Living the life of a freshly graduated, newly married young-20s woman has been… fun? Interesting, to say the least. But I’m thrilled to announce that my life is changing yet again in a way that I pray will bring some stability. I’ve accepted a job as an Editorial Assistant at a local publishing house!
This means that, for now, I will no longer be accepting new clients for freelance editing. Sad… But I’ll be learning so many more skills and getting to see the workings of a publishing company from the inside, which means I’ll be a much better editor farther along down the road if I take up freelancing again. Yay!
It also means that, once again, Andrew and I had to move. This time we stayed closer—just thirty minutes down the road and still in California—but it was moving all the same. If you’re counting, this is our fourth move since we’ve been married. And I never want to see a stupid box again.
And with all of the fun and excitement comes really long to-do lists. I need to unpack all of this shiz, clean the new place, shop for the things we need, and prepare for starting work on Monday. Plus, I still have editing work to catch up on, friends I’ve promised to hang out with, and a Bible Study I’m leading. Which means I’ve started avoiding my computer like the plague. Every time I see my email account with messages I still haven’t responded to, I have a small heart attack. It’s all I can do to keep reading American Wife.
The other day my husband said, “Hey, honey—you haven’t blogged in a while. Are you going to do that soon?” And I swear my lungs stopped working. Sometimes having a blog stops feeling like the immensely joyful hobby it usually is and starts feeling like a huge commitment—Things to Do, People to See, Posts to Write… Eek. I don’t want that.
So, at least while my life is in happy tumult, I respectfully decline the necessity of posting every day or every other day. I will post when I have the time, energy, and goodwill to do so. One Little Library is a blessing, and I want to keep it that way.
I’ll see you on Friday, May 3 to review American Wife. Don’t forget to be reading along!
