Here’s Looking At You, Kid

I wanted to say a proper good-bye.

Thank you for the years of listening to my bullshit. For following my story and laughing and crying with me. Being a blogger shaped who I am. Writing helped transition me from a Californian to a Seattleite, from single spinster to married woman. It got me through good times and terrible times, being able to come here to share my story. My time here mattered.

It’s been a long time coming but I know that it’s time to let go.

Thank you for everything, friends. Maybe I will see you again someday. Until then, be brave and be kind.

  1. I’ve had you & Mr. Darcy in my thoughts for so long Sizz….blessed to have been a reader/friend from afar. xoxoxkh

  2. Big step for sure. Lots of love and hugs to you and C on your next enormous adventure! I feel very, very lucky to online-know you! Sincerely hope to cross paths in person someday. X’s O’s and Cheerios, Sizz!

  3. Thank YOU. You sharing your stories have had a profound effect on me being able to process mine, especially over the past year. I completely understand the reasons for this and just want to properly give my gratitude and let you know that this place will be missed.

  4. Thank you for always being so honest and sharing yourself so freely. I wish you would still write but that seems like a silly request since I don’t keep my own blog anymore. Even through we have never met IRL, I feel like we are friends. I will miss reading about your life with Mr. Darcy and the fur babies. Best of luck to you, Ms. Sizzle.


  5. Awww Sizz, the blogging world is losing a great one. You were one of the most honest and sincere bloggers I know. The level of realness, the rawness of some of your posts, your humor, it all says so much about you. Though blogging has changed for many of us, it’s still so hard to see some of our first blogging friends retire. You are already missed. xoxo

  6. I’m sorry to see you go. I have thoroughly enjoyed your writing for so many years. Glad you are ending on your own terms. Hope things continue to improve.

  7. It’s tough but I get it. I had a sad moment when my domain was up for renewal, and I had to sit down and tell my blog, “I’m just not that into you (anymore),” and we hugged it out and then I backed up my data and nuked the whole thing.

    If you feel like it’s time to let the blog go, then it’s time for it to go. It opens up room for the next, better thing to come into your life.

    I’m glad I got to know you through Sizzle Says and that we are friends.

  8. It’s been an honor and a pleasure to get to know you by way of your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your triumphs and tears with all of us. You’ve been an inspiration to me in so many ways! You will be missed. Best wishes for many years of happiness to you and Mr. Darcy!

  9. I think a little piece of me just died. But I totally understand how times change and blogs fade. Thank you for every post you shared. And for being one of my favorite bloggy friends. Even if the writing stops, let’s not stop that part.

  10. I hope your future is filled with happiness. But on the hard days, please remember there are a lot of us blog readers who are all on your side and hoping for the best for you

  11. I’ve been thinking about you both and am sad you are leaving for good, although I understand. We’ll all be here if you change your mind! 😉 I am still determined to meet you in real life! xo

  12. I can’t remember when I started following your blog but it’s been at least 6 years. Your beautiful, honest writing made your blog a permanent staple in my feed. It’s weird (and probably creepy) but I vividly remember standing in the rain waiting for a bus back when I lived in DC reading the interview your friends did with Mr. Darcy. There were many literal lol’s and I knew that you had found your guy. Thank you for sharing so much of your life. Best of luck to you, Sizzle.

  13. I was sad to read this even though you said it perfectly and I still have you way in my life. You have had a unique voice in the blogging world and it’s been a bit of a security blanket to see you here all these years. You’ve given A LOT to your readers and this one is grateful. xo
