So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple tooAnd up in the nursery an absurd little birdIs popping out to say, "Cuckoo"Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel usTo say goodbye to youSo long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good nightI hate to go and leave this pretty sightSo long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieuAdieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieuSo long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehenI'd like to stay and taste my first champagneSo long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbyeI leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, goodbye... 

 I have some things you deserve to know.

I think I am being unfair to you all by holding off so long. I'm going to be completely honest with you all- I can't blog on here anymore.
This has NOTHING to do with my interest with AG, I still really love it, but I can honestly not keep up. My life has taken on a new level of busy, fast-paced and never slowing. With my average day being filled with homework, piano, swimming and more homework, sometimes I have no time to check my e-mail let alone take pictures and post! I feel its unfair to all you to always have my posts apologize for lack of updates or taking so long. I feel guilty that it's approaching almost a month since I have last posted. I keep promising that I can do better, that I can post more often or that I can make time to do doll photo shoots. But I can't. I have too much stress for essays or I have to rush off to a swim practice. It's not that I don't care about my blog or you, it's quite the opposite. I am writing this (sorta painful) post so that I can let you know that I can't post as often as I wish I could. It's so that I don't always leave you haging, because that's unfair to all you readers.

Just because I am going for a break doesn't mean I will never be back. I will still post if I have time, but there are no guarantees, and it's likely posts will have a gap of months in-between. A lot of thought has gone into this post, and the thing I wish most was the I would never have had to write it. But it wouldn't be fair to you to keep writing short "sorry for taking so long" or "I will post more in the future" or apologies that will happen again and again with promises I can't keep. It wouldn't be fair to you not to tell you how it will really be: that I will have to go away for a while. This blog has been an incredible journey for me, as it started out as just a spot for a girl (me) to muse about AG, and has turned into a place for all sorts of differnet girls from all over to meet and talk and laugh and obsess. I am so proud to be a part of the AG Blogger Community, and to get to know so many girls just like me.

This isn't your typical farewell from an AG Blogger, though. From the ones I have read it was signaling that they were gone, that they were un-interested and have moved on from their dolls. But I am not leaving forever, and I am not abandoning my blog, or dolls, or moving on. I could never sign of forever. Because I will never sign off of AG, or my dolls, or you, or all the happy times and laughs and thrills and tears and love I poured into this blog. This has been such a blessing in my life, and I will never abandon it. YOU have been a blessing in my life, all 129 beautiful, wonderful, fantastic, awesome, heartfelt, sweet and followers. No, scratch the follower part, you guys have been my sisters, my BEST FRIENDS. I love you guys with all my heart, and I will never sign off completely from you.
