2013 was such an exciting year for us at ESM. This little creative venture of ours turned into something we never expected to happen so quickly... a success. It has challenged us to push our creative boundaries, put ourselves out there and work so incredibly hard. We've grown quite attached to our readers. Without you, ESM wouldn't be anything.
Over the past few months we have spent a lot of time thinking and praying about the direction of ESM and each of us individually. Those of you that blog know the demands set on you and that it cannot simply be a hobby if you want it to be successful. We've realized this, harshly, over the past year.
With much consideration, we have decided that it is time for us to take a sabbatical. This decision was not made lightly and with so much heart ache. This blog is so much a part of us. We've put our hearts into this, but now, it's time for us to focus on other things. Over the past year we've missed out on things happening right in front of us because we had to finish a project or edit photos.
It's time for us to stop and actually see what's happening in our lives, in our families and appreciate it.
ESM isn't dead. We've decided to keep this blog up so we can each post when we feel inspired and have to share. It just won't be a regular schedule anymore.
We hope you all understand and will support us in our choice.
Thank you for making this past year so worth all the hard work. We adore you all and hope to see you round the blogosphere. Much love and appreciation to you!
