about me blogging vivre bien 2017

It is time.

September 14, 2017


Change can be scary, no? But oh, so necessary when the time is right. This space has meant so much to me over the years: a space for me to share with you hand-picked parts of my life’s adventures. A space that has held some of my most precious memories, and life lessons. It still holds all of those things. It has been a place to connect with all of you, to form genuine friendships and encourage and/or inspire a stranger or two on a similar journey. And you all have encouraged and inspired me so.


Currently, as most of you know, I am writing my first novel. As of September 2017, it’s about 80% written. So it should only be a few more years until it is finished 😉 (I kid, I kid.) (But seriously. It might be a few more years.) I will keep you all posted with this, okay? My hope is that one day this space will hold previews and news related to this story that has been in my brain and in my heart for so many years now. It’s one I can’t wait to publicly share.

But, it is time for the blog portion of this space to slow, if not completely cease. And I have reached the point where I’m not just okay with that, but where it has to happen in order for me to be fully present in all of the (other) things. A funny and beautiful and seemingly ironic thing has happened this last year now that Crew has become not just a part of my life but a part of this world: to put it bluntly, I have wanted to keep those things private, safe, separate from the internet world.

I may still pop on here occasionally to blog, to update, or to share when I have more than what Instagram allows me to type. But know that in the times the blog side of this space remains silent, it’s because I am busy adventuring in the following titles: Mom, Wife, Friend, Daughter, Sister, Life Liver, Dreamer, Writer, Jesus Seeker, Donut Eater, Michael Bolton Listener, and everything in between. I vowed to LIVE in 2017 and as I have attempted to follow through with that promise to myself, the craziest thing has happened: I have realized that, for me, it means to actually DO and not just share. Sharing does not always mean you’re doing, and just because you’re doing doesn’t mean you have to share. Maybe you connect to that right now, perhaps you don’t and that’s okay. But, it’s where I’m at.

These days I spend my free time working on my novel and writing from daily word prompts over at embergreywrites. You can also find me at emilyecullen, where I continue to share some of my life’s daily adventures.

Thank you for continuing to follow along, encourage, and inspire me. While the blog posts in this space may be dated, in that moment in time they rang true for me. They might currently ring true for you, depending on where you are in your journey. Regardless, the words are still true to my story, and I would love to hear from you if they connect to your story too.
