Hi – and an Update
Hello everybody and long time no see! I wanted to give you an update about where I’ve been. I’ll no longer be updating StrivingBean.com. I love blogging, but have had some major events in my life that have prevented me from updating my blog on a regular basis.
Sadly, my father suffered from lung cancer most of 2010 and passed away at the end of the year. 2011 has been about adjusting to this new reality, rethinking, and prioritizing. I don’t claim to have life figured out – but I do know that my beloved blog Striving Bean has to be set aside as I readjust to life as it is now. Hopefully you understand – I think you probably do.
Despite this new reality, my life lately hasn’t been solely about difficulty. One bright spot is I’ve been fortunate enough to travel in 2011. Travel is a great love of mine that went by the wayside after our kids were born (see old French vacation photos here)! So far this year we’ve been to Disney World, I went to Maui with my mother-in-law, and my husband and I plan on going to Chicago for a weekend getaway. I’ve always loved to travel and have really savored my recent adventures!
I’ll be adjusting Striving Bean to make it a permanent web resource. And someday I’ll return to blogging – I like it too darn much. Who knows what the new subject could be? When I return I’ll be sure to keep it interesting (hopefully!) and I’ll be sure to let you know when I’m back.
In the mean time, you can find me tweeting at @micaelavega on Twitter. And thank you for reading – your support has meant so much to me. Let’s keep in touch!
