well, not really. i am fairly sure the only people who look at this blog are my friends. so not really goodbye. but, i am going to stop blogging. i figure to wean me off i will blog 2 or 3 more weeks, then throw in the towel. i have had so much fun doing this and i can always look back through the blog as a kind of timeline. i will of course never stop uploading pics of the family on flickr for my far away friends. for those of you that did enjoy the blog, thank you so much!
