Well...hello everybody! It has been a long time since I last posted anything and I wanted to come on to address my absence. First of all, let me just say that I sincerely appreciate all of you who visit the site, read, comment, and overall support Naturally Leslie. Secondly, I want you to know that if you have sent an email asking a question or making a request of some kind, you were not intentionally ignored! I simply have not been able to devote myself to blogging the way I did in the past.
Over the last few months I have been consumed with work, motherhood, and just life in general. Since the last time I posted we bought a house and moved on top of everything else that was going on. My little baby is now a cruising, babbling, days-away-from-being-a-one-year-old little boy. While it has been a whole year since his birth, to me, time has flown by and I still feel new at this mommy thing. I have found that I simply don't have the time or energy (baby just started sleeping more than 3 hours at a time like a month ago...eek!) it takes to devote to blogging. That sucks for me because I have truly enjoyed the time I spent with all of you in this virtual realm.
I also realized that while deep down I love natural hair and pretty much anything to do with it, I am also a bit bored with the whole thing. I've been natural for 12 years now and honestly I am no longer as fascinated by styles, regimens, products, etc the way I once was. Call me jaded! I totally get how a newbie or even someone a few years in can still enjoy it all but I have to say, I think I've maxed out...for now anyway!
So all in all, I want you to know that while I have not been around, I appreciate you. Your readership, your support, your patience. I am not going to be posting anything else but I wanted to come on a say good bye officially. I am going to put up an away message on my Naturally Leslie gmail account stating more or less this same thing in case people skip reading this and send me an email!
I hope you all have a wonderful journey, both with your hair and in your lives. I bump into readers all the time so please feel free to say hey if we cross paths out in the "real world", lol! I wish you all the best in your personal and/or professional endeavors and it has been a real pleasure sharing this experience with you.
Peace and lots of love!
