Goodbye, Everyone

This is going to be a hard post to write. I don't know where to begin. I'm leaving my blog. I just don't have a big interest in dolls anymore. Of course I will always love and cherish them, but I just don't feel like playing with them or dressing them up anymore.

To be honest, I never thought it would come to this. I thought I would blog until I had to go off to college. But I'm entering my freshman year of high school instead. I've changed and my schedule doesn't allow for doll blogging anymore. 

I'm so sorry to leave, but it needs to be done. I give a big thank you to all of my followers and all the people who inspired me to start my blogging. This has been an incredible year and three months.

I'll leave my blog up, and who knows, maybe I'll come back someday. Maybe someday I'll have daughters of my own who love American Girl Dolls as much as I do.

Goodbye, everyone. Thank you so much for a truly fantastic time.
