Just two and a half more days left as the editor of skirt! Magazine and it’s all very surreal. I’m so busy planning our first birthday party (ironically. Wait – is it ironic? Let me consult my dictionary…and not Alanis Morissette, who, although well-meaning, got the whole ironic thing terribly wrong, misinforming an entire generation), writing stories for Carolina Bride, and finishing up the last issue of skirt!, that I’ve thus far neglected necessary things like cleaning out my desk, gathering my clips and tear sheets for my portfolio, and recording all my contacts.
I’m looking forward to Tuesday, now, when this will all be over and I can breathe a great big sigh of relief. When something’s coming to an end – even if it’s something really good – it often gets to the point where you’re just ready for that end to come so you can move on to the next thing.
There are so many things I need to get on with in preparation for the next season of life, and for you faithful people who so graciously read Great Smitten, be on the lookout for a switchover to a new url – greatsmitten.com – a new design (wee!), and some new features.
Thank you for the prayers, emails, comments, and encouragement. In a time when I could so easily be discouraged and feel insecure about my skills, God has really been showering encouragement on me through people around me, and it only confirms what I suspected: He is at work, and has gone ahead of us, preparing the way.
