Well, hello there.

It’s been a while!

I feel a bit foolish… but at the same time, I feel an overwhelming sense of peace.

The last time I was here, I was on the fast track to my 12 month planned Adventure to Bliss. Clearly I’ve epic-ally failed at the blogging goals. Three times a week, I believe it was? Yeah, no.

I’ll be totally honest and share that my intense reading goals, and my French studies have fallen short of where they should be at.

However, in my giant deviation from my PLAN, I’ve found solace, refreshing relaxation, new things to learn and take part in, and most of all, more bliss than I could have imagined.

So, what have I been up to? Lots of traveling, working my tail off, applying to grad school, finding my way to “eat right”, exercising like crazy, and even puzzling…

My writing as taken a back-burner. For better or for worse, I’ve found that my little corner of the internet has deviated from being my outlet, to something that drains me… clearly, not what I’m going for.

I’ve found too, that I don’t necessarily want or need the whole world to know all the little details of my world, my thoughts, my everything… I’ve found enjoyment in privacy and a generally heightened sense of poise – an air of mystery I can’t help but loving.

At the same time, words, fascinate me. Putting my thoughts down on “paper” fulfills me.

I go back and forth about this little corner of the internet I call My Life in Snippets. I adore all of my readers – all the friendships I’ve made during MLIS’s time, I’ve made several friends and I’m so excited to keep up with your blogs!! However, I have to say that, for the interim, it’s over for me. I’ve learned so much about myself, and so many other things, with all the energy and effort I’ve put here…but like all things in life, it’s time for me to move forward – on to the next thing!

Maybe, I’ll be back someday to share a story or two… or maybe not.

But for now, I wish all of you the very best, and I’m praying that each of your snippets is filled with something good.

With the Warmest Affection,
Ashlee DeLine
