last post





with a heavy heart i've decided this will be the last post for our blog. the decision has come during a difficult chapter for our family.
as most of you know, jim lost his job this time last year and immediately a job close to home was sought after. the search ended four months ago when the decision was made that a 9-5 weekly job would be taken over 800 miles from our home in chicago (yes we live in maryland).
i wish i could say this has been an easy transition for our family. for our marriage. i'm sure most of you can imagine the answer to that one. it has been an emotional roller coaster that simply has no end. the waves have ranged from overwhelmed, lonely, to recently bitterness and resentfulness.
our family would very much appreciate any thoughts and prayers and are thankful for each and everyone of you that has followed our stories and enjoyed the photos. i truly miss having the time each day to share them with you. however the plate is full, the load is heavy and i must give my children 100% of what i have left to give.
with much love, tara

Good luck with everything. I pray that you adjust quickly in Maryland and the new job turns out to be a huge blessing! :)

I am going to miss reading your posts and seeing your children grow. I can completely understand where you are at. Know that I will be praying for you and I hope that someday you will come back to the blogworld. I had no idea that you had already moved. Praying for you and this transition.

I am so sad, selfishly. My heart is breaking for you because I have been where you are. Our transition to Texas was not an easy one on us either (and we did not have two kids). I will be praying for your sweet family and that God can restore you! I will so badly miss the beautiful moments you capture in the lives of Luciana and Greyson but ultimately, they come first. You are great mommy to give up something that you enjoy for their good. I wish I could give you a hug. But even better, I am praying!

I am so sad to see you go. I have enjoyed so much watching your little ones grow and getting to know you. I cannot imagine what you must be going through, but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that we can keep in touch through email. Good luck Tara to you, Jim and your precious angels. Your blogger friends are all here for you if you ever need us!

I will miss seeing your gorgeous children and reading about your sweet family. You have such a blessed talent for photography! I think you are wise for taking on one less thing...even the small "fun" things can add up and start to become a stress. My best friend is working full time and raising three little boys while her husband works in another state - it is NOT easy! I wish the best for your family!

Tara, God has great things in store for you all. Hang in there, pray and keep being the wonderful mommy and wife you are. I will be praying for you and your family. The children are so adorable!! It is so different with two. :)
