Andrea, Bravo very smart decision, nothing wrong with stay at home moms that are really at home and in touch with with their children, husbands, family and friends. Time does fly by and sometimes we all need to reflect on what is most important in our lives right now. You are going to go in a great positive ZEN direction. Creating when you want, not to keep up with a Shop at all the crazy demands Your taking control, great feeling just has good as YOGA. Congratulations Enjoy LiFe... And Bake by all means bake..

Good for you!! I would love to win one of those beautiful strawberries!!! Keep having fun! Laurie

I think that they are beautiful!

I'm glad you are doing what feels right in your heart. :) They do grow really fast and you wonder where the time went. Eat up those days of being his best friend, because he'll turn 13 before you know it and he will hate you most of the time. :) I know this from two and a half months of experience. Don't worry he'll still love you.

Wow! Congrats on the decision! Please put me in the drawing!

oooh sad for me as I just found you!

but happy for you - enjoy a bit more relaxation! :-)

I am happy for you!! Today is my daughter's 13th birthday and I can't believe it. My how the time flies!!! Treasure each moment. Thanks for sharing. Love the precious strawberries. I hope I win!!

What a wise, wise woman you are! I lurk here frequently but never comment because you get so many visitors & I iddn't want to bother you. But this post was soo touching that I just have to commend you...you are doing the right thing & you'll never regret it!

I had decided to leave this comment before I read about the give-away but since I'm here anyway ;o), throw my name into the hat please.

Andrea,
I've so admired your creative genius, blog and shop for some time now. As a woman of ummm... 50, I have just started to blog, sign up with Etsy and put myself out there. I couldn't imagine doing this when my boys were little! My hats off to you for what you have gained through being in touch with your passion and creative side. No apologies are necessary for wanting to take a step or two back. I will continue to visit your blog often and shop in your online store. Enjoy your babies!

It's the right thing to do - you won't regret it. You are an inspiration and bring beauty to us all. Thanks for your generous spirit. Love the berries!

Coming from a stay at home mom for the last 18 years and having that little boy graduate this year I have to agree with you. Although I will miss your shop terribly it will be the best for you and your little ones. Life is too short and time too precious. Want an example read my blog post "Zachary Ryan" you'll see why I have enjoyed every minute of this crazy ride called life and look forward everyday to it's continuance:)

Hey Andrea-
What a wonderful thing that you are doing. I totally understand where you are coming from. Time with your family is the most important thing that you will ever have. ;) I wish you the best with everything and know that you will continue to be a wonderful and creative inspiration to us all. Take Care.

Best Wishes Andrea! It has to feel good to know you did what you wanted to do and succeeded! I can tell you as a mom to a 24 year old son and a 17 year old daughter...it FLIES!!! Awww~and beautiful thing~they still love to "play" with their mom.(sometimes!ha!)The strawberries are awesome!

Andrea, You have found the truth. We cannot have it all all at the same time. Life has a way of forcing us to choose priorities and you have chosen well. I raised three sons and I can tell you that they will not need you when they grow up as much as they do now. So cherish the days, they do fly and enjoy being the most important woman in their lives. Your blog is delightful and your shop full of so many beautiful things. I have just started my blog and am still learning. I would LOVE to win one of those strawberries! Linda
