I feel like I really want to say something poignant, something that makes sense of this random need to do what I'm about to do. Of course, nothing poignant or clarifying comes to mind. The only words that are lingering in my head are..."I feel like it's time to go."
I created this blog in February of 2008 in the midst of the Obama/Clinton democratic nomination war. I had so many feelings, thoughts and emotions swirling around in my head about what was happening during that election cycle so I figured I would start a blog and have a platform to let it all out. Once the election came and went and Obama officially snagged the nomination AND subsequently won [GOBAMA :) ] I didn't have much else to say about politics anymore. This blog turned into an "all about me" spot & the things that entertained me. Favorite tv shows, outings, vacays, private thoughts. This blog contains so much of my life between 2008-2010. It was my first one. A girl can only have one first :) But as with what happens to most firsts....it's time to walk away and let it rest. I don't blog here at all any more. Maybe once in a blue moon, if that. But that's not my reason for retiring Remarkably Chanel. I don't want to make any excuses for it. I just feel like it's right. My life is so different now from what it was four years ago. I'm so different. I would like to start my blogging journey from where I am now and see where it takes me.
To my forty something followers, thank you for any of your time and comments that you shared with me. To have any followers at all who were interested in what I ever had to say is humbling and rewarding and I thank you so so much. I'll post the link to my new digs one I move in and get comfy.
I'll leave with the sounds of someone I just lost way too soon and still haven't fully coped because her voice meant everything and then some to me. Ms Whitney Elizabeth Houston. RIP, beautiful.
