So, Remember When I Used to Blog? Yeah, me neither...

It has come to this point.

I'm calling it quits.

I thought I could juggle my new life as a mommy and blog writer but I just can't.

I can't.

Phillip is almost 10 months now and my oh my how fast time flies! He is climbing on everything and loves to explore. His personality is developing quickly and it's so amazing to watch him grow into a little boy.

I have come to realize that I much rather slow down and disconnect for awhile than try to keep up with all the changes that surround me.

I can barely keep up with Phillip, let alone this crazy world we live in!

So I've decided to disconnect in more ways than one. We've downgraded our cable and will soon be downgrading our cell phone plans. The decision to do so was mostly financial but since we've cut back on cable I find it very refreshing. My retinas aren't tortured by the likes of Honey Boo Boo and Real Housewives.

By disconnecting from the outside I hope to better connect on the inside. With my family, with God, and with myself. I won't be posting any blog posts for awhile. And my Twitter feed has been super quiet lately. I am on Facebook but am finding difficulty in creating a purpose for my page. I'm still available by email as well (islestyleliving@gmail.com).

I may return to the blog world but at this point I'm not sure. I will do my best to keep up with all of your lovely blogs. If you have a blog and I'm not yet a follower please let me know in the comments below. If you have any questions about my previous posts (running for a beginner, pregnancy, gestational diabetes, pain-medication free childbirth, breastfeeding, etc...) please send me an email or contact me through my Facebook page.

Thank you all for being so supportive and inspirational to me!

A hui hou! (Until we meet again)


  1. I will certainly miss you Nessa! Please keep in touch via email if you have time. I've always thought you are one of the sweetest bloggers I've ever come across.

  2. BABES!!!!! I miss you sooooo much don't disconnect from meeeeee and definitely keep this page live so we can refer to old posts etc. I totally get about not having time or not making time to blog so don't even feel bad. It was so great to hear from you yesterday -- I love and miss you CHOKE! Send me pics and videos of my lil man growing and I seriously hope to come home for a visit soon. A HUI HOU!!!! <3

  3. I have missed reading your posts but you have to do what is best for you! i hope that you are able to find some relaxation in your disconnect :)

  4. I'm really glad I got a chance to read this today - thanks for letting me know about it! I think having a chance to disconnect and enjoy Philip is a good idea - and you can always come back if you miss it! :)

  5. Ahhh! I've missed you! I was MIA from the blog world for the past month but have been slowly getting back into it. I hope you're still able to blog at least once in a while so we can keep in touch!

    ♥ Duckie.

  6. I will miss you, that is for sure. Please never forget you are an inspiration to me, and I hope to stay in contact with you through FB/email. I completely understand why you are taking a break and cutting back, but that does NOT mean you will be forgotten here, my friend! :) Talk to you soon!
