This week is a big week for me and for this contest. This marks the one year anniversary since I started this contest and it has been such a joy to see the amount of talent that has come through. Each week I have so much trouble deciding on the winners because there are so many beautiful amazing images submitted.

Having said all that, I have decided that this would be a good time for me to pull back from the blogging world for a while. I do not have the time needed to devote to it and now with another little one on the way I will have even less time. I have met so many wonderful photographers since I started this blog a year and a half ago. I will miss the interaction and wealth of knowledge I have gleaned from so many.

My co-host, Kim at Mom Tried It has decided that she would love to continue hosting this contest each week, so please hop on over there right now and follow her blog so you can still continue to participate. Be sure to hop on over there this weekend to choose this month's winner as well.

A big hug to you all!

Thank you so much for hosting and co-hosting for so long. Time for you and your family is the most important. You may find in time you enjoy a little blogging and sharing without having any blog "responsibilities" for a while.
Thank you again.
