After some serious consideration, We've decided to end the blog.
It's been 7 1/2 years since I started writing Cardigans & Couture, and it has provided me with an incredible outlet to share my favorite fashions, recipes, food, stores, restaurants, feelings and so much more.
When Katie joined me in writing nearly six years ago it helped lessen the load, but over the past year we've blogged less as other obligations have taken our time. As I move into 2017, I've decided I need to focus more, to have fewer commitments and not be spread so thin, and Katie feels the same.
This has been a really hard decision. I love this blog. I love that I know people look to us for gift ideas, for travel advice and to connect. I love that I can use the blog as an outlet to write about life, children, stress or whatever else is on my mind. I'm not sure what that outlet will be moving forward.
For now the Instagram account will still be active, and we may post there with more regularity, but I'm just going to take a month or so to feel that out. Do you want C&C to stay active on Instagram or is it the blog you are most interested in? (comment below)
My dear friend Pauline always tells me in times of challenge or transition that it is "this or something better." While it is hard to say goodbye to the time and energy I have put into C&C for the past 7 1/2 years, I know that it will result in something better.
And so for the last time, I will say thank you. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for trusting our recommendations and thank you for following this little blog for 7 1/2 years.
It has been a joy.
