I started this blog way back in 2008.  It's hard to believe I've been writing this blog for 16 years.  It doesn't seem like it's been that long either.

In those years we raised kids, dairy goats, chickens, pets, and so forth. I've shared our going-on's and gardening ups and downs.  I've shared my home repairs, upgrades and renovations.  I've shared my dehydrator experiences, handicraft and other craft experiences. 

I learned a lot from fellow bloggers and followers.  

I've shared many foraging recipes, DIY salves, lotions, chapstick recipes and more.  My blog was a great place to both share and learn.  

I really enjoyed writing my blog, reading blogs and sometimes laughing out loud.  Our family also went through many losses in the past 16 years.

It has come to the point where screen time is less, and more person to person is more, and overall more free time.  It's time to put an end to Pioneer Woman at Heart blogspot.

Kristina, you know I can relate to this decision. I don't know if I've ever missed reading one of your posts. I've enjoyed them all. The two pieces of your beautiful crochet work I have on the wall of my quilt room will always remind me of you. Blessings to you in whatever the future brings. Hugs.

I am sorry to read that this is the finale of your blog. I certainly learned many things from your posts. Thank you for sharing a glimpse into the many various things that you do. I will miss your posts but understand that it must take a lot of time to get all your posts together to publish with all of the things you accomplish in a day. Best wishes.

Leigh said...

I absolutely get it. I support your decision but still feel sad about it! Still, you've got to do what's best for you and your family. I hope you will leave your blog up as a future resource.

I will miss it also! Only discovered it about 5-6 years ago and although I go awhile between reading your new posts, I try to catch up when time allows... Best Wishes going forward!
