January 15, 2013
I've spent the last two weeks trying to find exactly what I want to say in this post. But rather than torture myself any longer I'm just sitting down and knocking it out.
While there are many sides to my decision to stop writing here it can really be summed up as this- I've outgrown this space.
Forever 29 was a great notion when I actually was 29. Staring down 31 in a few months I shake my head a little bit at that silly girl. I have learned so many things. To think of being that naive forever scares me.
Blogging in the mainstream blogging world just isn't for me anymore. It preys on some of my biggest insecurities. It has become a whole different animal than what I really long for when I write.
So I am moving on. And rather than crawling back a few weeks or months from now I've already set up a new home for myself on the internet. You will find my heart there.
I can't leave without saying a truly heartfelt "thank you" those of you that have encouraged me along the way. Friends that became readers. Readers that became friends. You helped me brainstorm, let me vent and supported me in ways that I won't forget.

I love January 1st.
I know it is just a day, but I always enjoy the the implied new start.
2013 is going to be a year of simplicity for me. Cutting out the excess. Working with what I have. And knowing that what I have is more than enough.
You might be thinking "who is this girl and what did she do with Amy?" But I've gained a lot of perspective recently and it's time for me to make some changes.
"what to wear?!?" moment. Less buying something new for every occasion.
As for What to Wear Where the future is uncertain. My time writing at Forever 29 will be ending soon and I hope to update y'all on that as soon as I can get my thoughts together.
It's been a great ride. I'm choosing a new path and wish you all the best in 2013 as you walk, skip, hop and run along yours!
