"" From Now Till 'I Do'...: Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

walking away

I remember starting this blog back in 2009 because I wanted to write for Weddingbee. Newly engaged, I discovered this wedding site full of blogging brides where you followed their journey to the altar. They were on the lookout for new writers and I thought why not; the only caveat - I needed to have my own blog.

New to the world of blogging  and with the cheesy name of afamwedschichi, I started documenting our wedding planning journey to a handful of readers.

I never did get picked for Weddingbee but I enjoyed writing so much that I continued to blog beyond the wedding, seeing the blog evolve to include topics such as my faith, family and marriage as I shared the things God was teaching and showing me.

This year my life changed and so did my priorities and there comes a time in every ‘project’ were you realise that it has run its course and you need to move forward into other things. This is that time and it is with peace in my heart that I announce that this will be my last blog post.

It is something that I have prayed and thought a lot about and is the right choice for this season of my life. I do plan to return back to blogging in the future, but only when the time is right.

I want to thank you for being such a loyal reader over the past three years. For your comments and messages, prayers and stories, I will truly cherish the memories from this blog. You are part of a wonderful community on here.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me.

Stay blessed!

ps. The blog itself will remain online, so that the archives are still accessible but I won't be posting any new posts.

The Facebook page will also remain open and I will frequent there from time to time to post things I find around the web. Please check out my resources page for other blogs you might like to read.

If you want to stay in touch you can find me on twitter.

pps. We celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary tomorrow (26/6)– woo!

  2. Awwww...Pls dont goooooooo...

    I've been an ardent but silent reader since 2010 and your blog has sincerely helped me through some rough times. I remember introducing my good friend Tola of the callmemummy blog to your site because you were going through the same phase, pregnancy, and I can see you are e-friends now.

    I remember almost freaking out when the site was requesting for a password which you later explained. Many thanks for been a tremendous blessing to me. You do not know how this life has been touched but I am thankful that you are moving on to greater heights. I will continue my stalking on Twitter, **double winks*. Massive hug from here yonder!

  3. Awwww... Mrs C. Eruchalu, I enjoyed your blog so much and will definitely miss your writing. You've been such an immense blessing, not just on the subject of marriage but more so as a contemporary example of godly virtue. I sincerely hope through God that we will read from again before long. Stay blessed, you and yours.

Take care of yourself and enjoy that precious family God has blessed you with. If you are ever in the states please come by and visit. Abby would love to play with Siobi.
