A Sad Farewell…

It has been a month since my last post here on And Three To Go. Shameful, really.

We have just gotten back from three weeks visiting friends and family in America. It was a fantastic time which took us to Disneyland in Southern California, San Antonio, Texas, and then back to California near San Francisco.

During our trip overseas, ‘back home’ really, I did a lot of thinking. I mulled over the fact that I just wanted to be present on our trip and to not have to write about it. I didn’t want to take the time out of my visits to make sure to post about our adventures. I just didn’t feel the desire to write at all. I wanted to live it for me and my family, not just to remember it for a blog post later.

I have struggled with these feelings in recent past and I have always have strived to power through them. I have always come back, mostly because I love the interaction with my friends, family, and fellow bloggers on this site.  But I think that this is it. I have to stop writing now.farewell-961598_1920

I hope that you all will continue to share And Three To Go with those that want to travel the world. I hope that in some way I have helped you to want to travel and helped on the travels you took. Most of all I hope you enjoyed following along on our adventures.

This is not an easy post to press the “publish” on, it was a post that I thought, prayed, and wrestled with for a seriously long time. But I think it is time, time to say farewell. It’s been a great run everyone! Thank you to all my lovely readers and followers and staunch supporters. I have loved the friendships I have made here on the site.  You are all the reason that I have kept this going for so long.

I will be leaving the site up and running so that hopefully it will help others to travel the world and hopefully inspire them as well. Travel often, travel anywhere, just travel.

    This site has helped me keep in touch since I don’t do social media so I’m bummed I won’t be able to anymore. But you gotta do what you gotta do! I’ll have to figure something else out ?

      I know Patti! I wish you guys were on Instagram or something so you can at least see what we are doing… if you want to email me so I have you email address, maybe we could schedule some times for the girls to skype each other. 🙂 My email is andthreetogo@yahoo.com. Sad we missed you guys when we visited, but we will see you next year when we visit hopefully, and skype until then.

      Aw thanks Kimberly! Those are very kind words. 🙂 Who knows what the future holds, but for now, I am glad that we can keep in touch on facebook and instagram.

    Your courage to let go and move on from something that you have invested so much into is as much of an inspiration as your ability to share the world with us. Thank you. I believe your blog must be a stepping stone to where you are meant to go next! XOX – B

    I am so very sad as I have so greatly enjoyed reading your posts and often feel as though I’ve been there right alongside you three. If, in the future you begin writing again, I will excitedly follow again!
    You and your tales of adventure will be missed. Be safe and enjoy!

      Mom I so appreciate your support and encouragement about this blog the whole time I have been writing on it. You have been my cheerleader and I love you for it! Thanks for always making me feel like it could be done. 🙂 Love you! xoxox

    I’ve enjoyed your blog for many years now. Thanks so much for all the time you’ve put in. I know it can be exhausting. Good luck !

      Thanks Tieshka! Thank you for sticking with me through the years! It has been a long and crazy journey… I am hoping that someday I come back and write again, but for now, rest time. I will stop by your lovely blog and say hi on occasion for sure!

    We love you and will miss your posts! But kindred spirits always hold hands with long arms, one way or another. If only in occasional, fleeting thoughts that prompt prayers.

    The graphic for this post was really neat. Evoked the sense that I think you were shooting for. Such a well-clad lady, prepared for the future but fondly saying good-bye to the past.

    I will travel. You and Kemkem keep me destined to travel. The fourth child interrupted my travel bug, and perhaps, if not for you two, I might have dropped it in sheer exhaustion and overwhelm. But you kept travel thoughts on my mind’s burner.

    I will be in touch occasionally! I hope Amazon would somehow let me know if/when Chad’s book makes it out! I hope you, Zoe, and Chad are always blessed with unity and joy and peace and contentment with each other. If your health ever struggles, look at real food, no processed fats, and consider an elimination diet trial taking out the top eight allergenic foods. 🙂 That’s my propaganda in a nutshell.

    May God see fit to make your path light and joyful.

      Amen to that Terri! Please do email me with updates and promise I will as well. I will also still be following your blog and will make sure to show my comments there on occasion as well.
      When chad’s book is published you will be the first to know! 🙂
      I love your propaganda and am hoping to make that lifestyle change at some point for sure.
      Love to you and your lovely family. May God bless you guys with calm and fun.

    Sorry to see you go. I hope you will stay in touch from time to time. So many questions. But I will respect your privacy. Hugs and kisses.

      I will definitely stay in touch on Facebook and Instagram… we are trying to get a trip to Cambodia planned for next year, with an absolute imperative trip to Angkor Wat. 🙂 Z has been asking for months… Will definitely want to meet you in person! Thanks for always reading my blog and commenting. I have loved getting to know you!

    I knew your heart wasn’t in it for a while. It’ still a shock but l’m glad you decided to leave it because your heart was no longer all in. When it starts to be a chore, it becomes a horrible job which is what you wanted to get away from..haha! I hope all is well with the family. Imagine we are currently in Bangkok right now, but just for a week and leave Sunday night, so no Chiang Mai or Phuket 😉 . Take care..

      I know… it was a long time coming, but I am ready for the break. And I love that I can still follow along on your travels… I will pop by and say every so often! xoxoxo

    I’m really sorry to see you go, as I have enjoyed reading about your life in Thailand. You’re brave and courageous to go with your convictions and do what you feel is right.

    Blogging is hard, but it’s even harder to say “No!”

    I’m glad that you’re leaving your blog open and look forward to catching up with you somewhere on social media. Stay strong and stay free. Love to all xx

      Oh Victoria, thank you for the kind words! I will be stopping by your blog and saying hi on occasion (and living vicariously through your travels). 🙂 Thanks for always reading and commenting! It has been a pleasure getting to know you.
