All Good Things Must Come To An End

by HEAB on March 21, 2012

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Like my car…

Yep, The Beater was in a minor fender bender this morning.  Thankfully, no one was injured, but the car is totaled.  Time for that minivan, huh?

Another thing that must come to an end for the time being is this blog. It’s been an amazing 3 1/2 years, but it’s time for me to concentrate on other things…

We’ll be back someday.  I just really want to spend these next few months before the twins arrive fully focused on CD, Summer, and the pups.  Thanks for all your love and support over these last few years.  I love you guys.

Bye-bye.

I’ve been reading your blog since the beginning, and your weight loss journey has truly been an inspiration to me on mine. I have so much respect for you as a person, mother, and blogger and wish you all of the best, Heather!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Brittany,
I knew we went way back – thanks for sticking with me through it all. :)

Michelle March 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

You’ll be missed! Enjoy your time with your family! I wish you all the best!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Thanks Michelle. :)

Meg March 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Oh Heather, as sad as I am to see the blog go for a bit, I know it’s for the best and I’ll continue to keep you and that beautiful, growing family of yours in my thoughts and prayers. You all rock.

MUCH love to you, always. I’ll never forget the day (years ago…) that I stumbled across your blog and got SO PUMPED! :)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Meg,
Thanks so much for reading over the years and for your thoughts and prayers. That means a lot. :)

coco March 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Sorry to hear about the car accident, glad that you’re all safe.

It’s sad that you’ll stop the blog but I TOTALLY understand. But i’ll miss you so much and Summer… she’s sooo adorable. How can I keep seeing her cute face if you stop blogging? maybe I can add you on FB? Really want to know how the twins go.

You’re finally showing! I guess this time you show fast because they’re two of them in there!!!! Congratulations again! Really really happy for you and CD.

brandi March 21, 2012 at 2:01 pm

i can’t wait to hear about the twins when they make their arrival :) enjoy your time! i’ll miss you :)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Thanks Brandi. I’ll still be Facebookin’ it. :)

robyn jones clark March 21, 2012 at 2:02 pm

glad you are ok! it’s totally reasonable that you would want to focus on all of those cuties (CD included). You also need to rest and take care of yourself so that those twins can be well taken care of too! Lots of prayers for you. :)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Thanks RJC,
You know I’m thinking of you often and can’t wait to meet up whenever you come to Nashville. :)

Jennifer March 21, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Enjoy every minute Heather!!
Thanks for sharing so much of yourself and your family with us all this time.
God bless!!
xoxoxoxo

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Thanks so much Jennifer. :)

Julie March 21, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Good luck and Gods blessings to your growing family! I will miss your blog, but am happy for you! I will keep it on my list and hope that you’ll update us when the babies arrive! Enjoy your time with Summer before she becomes a wonderful big sister!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Thanks so much Julie, and I will definitely let you guys know when the twins arrive. Promise. :)

Jenny March 21, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Enjoy those babies, and I sure hope to see you back someday! You really are inspiring! Thanks!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Thanks Jenny. I hope to be back someday. Not sure when, but I know I’ll miss blogging and all of you. :)

Rachel March 21, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Twins! I had no idea! Very sad to see you go. Will the blog still be available to read past entries? I hope so!

Good luck and safe birthing!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Thanks Rachel, and yes, I don’t plan to take any of my old posts down. :)

Erica March 21, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I’m SO glad you all are ok. And I totally hear you on this…I’ve been thinking about doing the same thing

Annie D @ Annie's Simple Life March 21, 2012 at 2:10 pm

LOVE YOU! XOXOXO!!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:01 pm

LOVE YOU too Annie. Thanks for all your support. :)

Liz March 21, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Best of luck to you and your family, Heather! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and hope you come back someday but understand if you don’t!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Liz,
I’m pretty sure I’ll be back someday. :)

Jennie (the gf-gf) March 21, 2012 at 2:14 pm

You will be missed, HEAB! I’ve followed your blog for a couple of years, and it’s helped improve my relationship with food more than I can tell you – everything from getting over my fear of fat to making chicken salad in my food processor :-) Thank you for that!
Good luck with your new adventure(s)!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Jennie,
YES, the food processor is the only way to make chicken salad in my opinion. :) Thanks so much for reading over the last few years. I’ll miss you guys too!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) March 21, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Well, while I’m sad to hear you say that, you are a true friend so I know we will keep in touch. Trust me, I know life gets busy. There is no way I could have blogged when I had little ones. I couldn’t imagine having the time to write being that (even now) I have no time to do laundry. I love you Heather and I’m so happy for you and your new journey. xoxo

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Sarena,
You better believe I’ll be staying in touch. You’re one of my best bloggie buds! :)

katie @KatieDid March 21, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Best of luck with everything and hope you can really soak in these few months before all the excitement begins! You’ve been an inspiring blogger since the beginning for me… truly you have affected how I view health, food, body image, blogging etc.

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Katie,
Thanks so much, and also thank you for reading. I started my blog to help others, and you have no idea how happy it makes me to hear that I did make an impact on someone’s life…and hopefully both of us have inspired others to embrace the savory breakfast. I’ll miss you, but I hope to be back someday. :)

Sarah @ See Sarah Eat March 21, 2012 at 2:18 pm

I am so sorry about your car but very glad no one was hurt. Cars can be replaced but people can’t. I’m also sad you won’t be blogging for a while but it’s for the best reasons ever :) Blessings to you and your sweet family!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Thanks so much Sarah. I’m going to miss your sweet comments. :)

Sheri March 21, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Heather- I don’t comment very often, but I do read every post. I’ve emailed you a few times and I must say- that of any blogger I’ve ever emailed- you’ve sent the most genuine, complete and caring responses back to me. I can really see how much you care about and appreciate all of your readers.
When you announced you were pregnant with twins, I was completely blown away! How exciting for you and your family. It’s probably a little overwhelming! Enjoy your time off, we’ll miss you!!!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Sheri,
Thanks so much for reading and for your emails. I always enjoyed hearing from other bloggers/readers. I never knew how many amazing people I would meet when I started the blog – such a neat and inspiring community! We are a bit overwhelmed at the thought of twins + a toddler, but I know we’ll survive. :)

Thanks again for reading and for the support over these past few years. I’m going to miss you guys more than you know!

Holly March 21, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Heather I sure have enjoyed your blog for quite some time! Jason and I still enjoy CD’s almond butter chili now and then :) Good luck/take care/be healthy/be happy/etc!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Thanks Holly…I love your love of the chili. Makes me smile. You take care as well, and I’ll still be on Facebook. :)

Lauren @ Wholewheatorbust March 21, 2012 at 2:22 pm

I am so glad you and your family weren’t hurt in the accident. And not that it means much, but I completely support your decision to check out of Blogland. Your blog has been an incredibly POSITIVE influence on other blogs, bloggers, and readers. We all love you and wish you and CD and Summer the absolute best!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Lauren,
Actually it means a lot. Thanks for your support over the last few years and for your understanding. I wish you the best as well – keep making people laugh. I love your sense of humor. :)

"Bid" ding farewell !! March 21, 2012 at 2:24 pm

SOMI ;-)

just kidding, but ya know you are the best!!!

xo

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Bid,
So wish there was a “like” button for comments on my blog. So, since there’s not, “one person likes this”, and that one person is me! :)

Coco March 21, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Do what’s best for you and your family. Enjoy this time LIVING instead of writing about living. We’ll all be here when you get back :-)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Thanks Coco. :)

the delicate place March 21, 2012 at 2:27 pm

oh no! hey mini van ;) glad everyone is ok! you will be missed heather! you were one of the very FIRST blogs i ever read! i understand your time now is important and must be divided and dedicated to your family. hope to see you back around eventually ^_*

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Melissa,
Thank you, and I’ll still be around and reading your blog as well. :)

maggie March 21, 2012 at 2:28 pm

totally understand. enjoy these last few months!! <3

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Thanks Maggie. :)

Amber Shea @Almost Vegan March 21, 2012 at 2:32 pm

We’ll miss you, Heather!
Much love to you and your beautiful family <3

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Thanks Amber. I’m going to miss all of you as well – lots! :)

Liz @ Tip Top Shape March 21, 2012 at 2:33 pm

If there was ever a reason to put the brakes on blogging, I can think of no better one than your family :D Good luck with the twins and everything else!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Thanks Liz. :)

Lissa March 21, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Heather, you will be missed, but I can completely understand why you are stopping blogging now … Looking forward to seeing your family grow and change. Love and hugs! Lissa

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Thanks so much Lissa. I’ll still be around on Facebook. Can’t do without my occasional Maya fix. :)

Averie @ Averie Cooks March 21, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Omg Heather…where to begin. First, thank GOD you are OKAY!!! My mom was in a fender bender in her 1970s VW Bug when she was pregnant with me, it was totaled, and my dad said, that’s it, you need a more substantial vehicle. And I spent my early days being chauffeured around in a Buick. lol

Next, you, the blog, your life’s direction…I am not all that surprised to hear of the blogging break, vacation, hiatus…but of course, will miss your updates. I can’t believe we’ve “known” each other for 3.5 years. Boy, life sure changes, eh? :)

Much love to you and the family!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Averie,
Yep, all okay…well, except for the car. Hoping to get something new this weekend.

Thanks so much for all your love and support over these last few years. I’ll still be in touch. Promise. :)

Shannon March 21, 2012 at 2:42 pm

glad everyone was safe! you’ve so much in store, i’m excited for your new adventures with all the heablets :)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Thanks Shannon. We’re excited too. :)

sarah r March 21, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Enjoy you time with your sweet babies and CD. We will miss you!

sarah r March 21, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Enjoy your time with your sweet babies and CD. We will miss you!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Thanks Sarah. I’m going to miss you guys too!

Kailey March 21, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Your blog is one of the first I ever read, which means it helped me start my very own blog. For that I’ll always be thankful!

I’ll miss reading your blog, but I wish you and your family the very best! I’ll be reading whenever you return! xo

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Thanks Kailey, that means a lot. :)

Samantha Angela March 21, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I’ll miss reading :(

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Thanks Samantha. :)

Melanie March 21, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Meh. I hate endings:( so I’m sad to see you go, but it is totally understandable. Best of luck to you with the twins. You have been quite an inspiration and a source of information for me over the past couple years. I always felt if we lived closer we would surely be good friends.

Are you taking the blog down completely, should I start printing recipes?

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Thanks so much Melanie – for reading and for your kind words.

I don’t plan on taking down any of my old posts. So, the recipes will be here whenever you get a HEAB-like craving. :)

Susan March 21, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Heather,

You have been consistently one of my favorite blogs since the time I started reading 3 years ago. I don’t comment often, but I want to let you know how wonderful your internet presence has been. You are a warm, unique spirit and an amazing mother, wife and friend. Your light truly comes through and I selfishly hope you will be back someday! However, I fully understand wanting to concentrate on other important right now. Sending you lots of love!

Susan

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Susan,
Wow, we go way back. Thanks so much for reading and for your support over these past 3 years. I hope to be back someday – not sure when, but someday for sure. :)

Carbzilla March 21, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Lots of love to you, Heather! Can’t wait to see the family as it grows! {{hugs}}

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Thanks Tiffany. :)

jenna March 21, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Awe! Bye bye for now. Enjoy your next few weeks hanging out with your big girl :) You’ll be missed!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Thanks Jenna, I’m going to miss all of you!

Heather March 21, 2012 at 3:06 pm

To my Tennessee Twin!
Thanks for an amazing intro to the blog world! Good luck and blessed beginnings to you and your growing family!
XOXO Heather

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Hi Heather! Thanks so much for reading and for your well wishes. I hope to be back someday. :)

Ana March 21, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Ohh, I will miss you tons Heather, but on the other hand I completely understand your side and I wish you all the best in this time for yourself and your family. Enjoy your precious loved ones, you are one beautiful and blessed woman!
You and Summer are gorgeous, so beautiful! Summer is too precious, you are more than right to spent your time with her and Cd!
Let us know when the twins arrive, I will love to have an update on you all!
Much love and hugs to you all!
Ana

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Ana,
I’m going to miss all of you guys, but you have my email and please keep me posted on how you’re doing. I promise a twins update whenever they decide to show up, and you have to let me know when you’re all done with school and about all the ice-cream you enjoyed during your last semester. If you don’t get any, I’ll be quite disappointed! ;)

lindsay March 21, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Youre allowed. But you will be missed like no other! Im just glad i stalk you on FB. I mean I stalk you and summer. hehe. Much love to you and your sweet family.
XXOO

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Lindsay,
Yes, I’ll still be on Facebook, and you better stay in touch.
In Marmite love,
Heab :)

courtney March 21, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Best wishes to you all!!! You will be missed!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Thanks Courtney, I’m going to miss all of you as well!

Mandy March 21, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Aww… too sad! I’ve followed your blog since before you were pregnant with Summer and became a mommy myself about a year after you, I really enjoyed following your journey. I was hoping to follow it as it continues with the twins, but I completely understand – your family comes first, and I imagine things will be hectic in the not too far future.

I wish you and your family all the best! :D

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Thanks for the support and for reading over these past two years. I love hearing from other new mamas, and I wish you and your little one all the best. Oh, and I promise an update when the twins arrive. :)

Denise Billings March 21, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Enjoy the precious time in your life! I’ll miss your blog but our friendship will never go away. Love you!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Denise,
Never ever! :)

Heather @ Bake, Run, Live March 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Heather, I echo so many of the above comments- your blog has always been a joy to read. I greatly appreciate you sharing your life with us. Best of luck to you, CD, Summer, and the babies. Take care. Lots of love.

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Thanks Heather, and thank you for all your sweet comments. Lots of love to you as well. :)

Sarah March 21, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Oh man, I am so glad everyone is okay!

I am sad there won’t be a public dose of HEAB to brighten my days, but I know there will still be many personal doses. Or at least I’ll bombard you with personal doses of me. :)

Love you, Heabs, CD, Summie and the HEABlets!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Sarah,
You know I love my personal doses of Mama Pea – much love to you, Pea Daddy, Lulu, and Gigi. :)

Victoria (District Chocoholic) March 21, 2012 at 3:50 pm

We love you too, HEAB! I’ll be thinking of you and your growing, adorable family.

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Thanks Victoria – I’ll be forever grateful to you for those Brunsli cookies you sent me. I can’t tell you how those much I look forward to those during Summer’s middle of the night feedings. Oh, and you introduced me to Teuscher’s chocolate – for that, I love you. :)

Samantha March 21, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Oh my goodness…thankfully everyone is ok!

Best wishes to CD, Summer, the twins, and you! May life continue to grant you with many blessings!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Thanks Samantha! Best wishes to you as well, and I know we’ll stay in touch. Love you. :)
P.S. Did you notice my skirt? It’s my new fav!

clare @ fittingitallin March 21, 2012 at 4:08 pm

We’ll miss you!! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and birth – can’t wait to meet the twins!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Thanks Clare, I’m pretty excited about meeting them too, and I promise to let you guys know when they arrive. :)

Maria Makes Muffins March 21, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Thank you so much for the impact that your blog has had on my life. May God bless you and your family!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Maria,
Thank you so much – for your support and for reading. I’m started my blog to help others, and it means a lot to me to hear that it has had had an impact on people…more than you know. Take care and many blessings to you as well. :)

Ashley March 21, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Awww, HEABs!!! You will be missed! So very happy for you though!! We’ll definitely be staying in touch. xoxo All the best, friend!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Ashley,
Most definitely, and I hope to meet in person someday soon…hopefully in Colorado! :)

Alex @ Spoonful of Sugar Free March 21, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Heather,

You, Summer, your blog has been so inspirational to me. You are such a great mom, and will be even better as time goes by and you have your twins! It is very exciting. Good luck with everything. I’ll be praying for you!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Thanks Alex. Your blog has been so inspirational to me. The bitter chocolate cake will always be one of my favorites!
In Baker’s love,
Heather :)

Abby March 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I figured this is coming, but that doesn’t make it any less of a bummer. However, you’re living LIFE and we’re grateful you let us in for so long. And by the way, Summer is SO a mini-you ;)

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Thanks Abby. :)

Alison (Fueling for Fitness) March 21, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I will truly miss your sunny personality and blog posts, but completely understand. Hopefully I’ll still have your previous posts to sift through when I’m looking for some daily inspiration. :) All the best to you and your family!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Alison,
All the previous posts are staying up – so have fun sifting. Thanks for reading and for the support. :)

Lou March 21, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Heather, you’re amazing… I know we will stay in contact anyhow, but your blog was my saviour during midnight feeding sessions when Misty was tiny – I will miss it, but I know you have WAY more precious things to focus on.

I’m so excited and happy for you guys :)

Much love xxxx

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Lou,
You’re amazing as well, and yes, of course we will stay in contact. So glad I was there for you when you needed some HEAB love, and then you came along right when I needed you – you don’t know how much your blog helped me with coming up for meal ideas for Summer. Love you and your personality. I have a feeling we’d be good friends if we ever find ourselves on the same continent. :)

MilesMusclesMom March 21, 2012 at 4:47 pm

I dont comment all the time but I do read all the time
it has been a pleasure following your journey and all the best to you and your family!!

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Thanks MMM. That means a lot. :)

Grandma Honey March 21, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I have learned so much from you so thank you very much for that. I will miss your blog but I completely understand. I hope you do let us know when the babies get here. God Bless You.

HEAB March 22, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Grandma Honey, thank you for reading, and yes, I promise a twin update whenever they decide to make an appearance. :)

Andrea of Care to Breed March 21, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I’ve never cried when reading a “goodbye” post from a blogger, but I have to admit I teared up a little bit reading yours. I think it’s mostly because I’m SOOOOOOOO excited for you and your family. But, also a little sad, that we won’t be along for the ride :) But, don’t quit Facebook or I’ll lose it!
Love to all the HEABs!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:24 am

Andrea,
I will still be on Facebook – probably more so now, and I’m always just an email away. Much love to you, Chris, and Bronwen. :)

Nikki March 21, 2012 at 5:02 pm

I am so happy for you Heather, and thankful for all the posts of your life you have shared with us! Enjoy your little girl, and take care of yourself and CD! I will miss your posts!
All the best, and I hope to read about your life with twins one day when things slow down! …Albeit they may be 10! ;)
Sending you positive vibes, and well wishes.
Nikki

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:26 am

Nikki,
Thanks so much. I hope to be back someday, and I will definitely let you guys know when the twins arrive. You take care too – I will miss your sweet comments. :)

Liz @ iheartvegetables March 21, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Heather, your blogs was one of the FIRST I ever started reading, and your blog inspired me to eventually start my own! I can totally understand wanting to get in some extra time with Summer and CD before the twins arrive but you will be missed!!!! Hope everything goes fantastic and you’re able to check in periodically :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:28 am

Liz,
It makes me smile to hear that. Thanks so much for finding my blog and for reading. I’m going to miss all of you as well, and I hope to be back someday. :)

Jennifer March 21, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Enjoy the time with your little ones, Heather because they grow up so fast.

You will be missed. :)

(Please leave your links to other blogs up for a little while so those of us who used them can have time to save them.)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:29 am

Jennifer,
Thank you – I’m going to miss you guys too! Old posts aren’t going anywhere. :)

Jenn (eating bender) March 21, 2012 at 5:14 pm

We’ll miss you but of course, could not understand or support your decision more. Enjoy every moment of these next few months, Heather. :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:31 am

Thanks Jenn – you were one of the first blogs I ever read, and the first blogger I met in person. I’ve been grateful for your friendship and support over these past few years, and I hope to meet up again someday soon – whether that be in Chicago or AZ…OK, so I’d rather it be in Arizona, but we’ll make it happen. :)

Jessie March 21, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I suspected this might happen soon but I can’t say I’m not saddened! You will be missed Hearher & I wish you & your growing family the very best!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:32 am

Thanks Jessie. I’m going to miss all of you…lots. :)

Josie March 21, 2012 at 5:32 pm

I love this blog! PS: when I read the title of this post, the first thing I thought about was my grandma’s favorite saying: “All good things come to an end, even life.” . . . Just in case you were in a positive mood, or something. =)

God bless your family!

<3

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:33 am

Thanks you Josie. Blessings to you as well. :)

Hannah March 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Love you right back, dear Heather. Very very proud of you for choosing to focus on family and life, though will miss you. Might I have permission to sneakily contact you via Facebook/email if/as my travel plans for this year become more concrete? :) xoxoxo

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:33 am

Hannah, well, I’d be very disappointed if you didn’t! Hoping to meet you in person one day soon. :)

Krystina (Krystina Zena) March 21, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I’ll miss you, Heather! I’ve been reading for years and always look forward to your posts and pictures of your beautiful self and adorable daughter. Best of luck to you!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:55 am

Thanks for sticking with me over these past few years Krystina. I’m going to miss all of you as well! :)

Sheena March 21, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I’ve been a fan of your blog for about 2 years. It’s inspired a lot of positive thoughts and actions! Thank you for that and best of luck in all of your endeavors <3

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:55 am

Thanks for letting me know Sheena. Means a lot. :)

Kerry @ Totes My Oats March 21, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Your blog is the first blog I ever read! It opened me up to a whole new world and inspired me to write my blog. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and enjoy your family!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:57 am

Kerry,
It’s an honor to know that my blog inspired you to start your own. Thanks so much for reading and best of luck to you as well. Going to miss you guys!

Mandiee March 21, 2012 at 6:06 pm

I’m sorry to hear about your car, but I’m sure it’ll all work out. I’ll definitely miss having you around the blog world, but I understand you want to concentrate on your family. (Please do keep your blog up, though; I still love accessing your recipes!) I wish you the best of luck with the twins. You’re already such a great mother to Summer, and I’m sure having the twins will only amplify your love.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:58 am

Thanks so much Mandiee. I have no plans to take any of my old posts down, and I hope to be back someday. :)

Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen) March 21, 2012 at 6:23 pm

We’ll miss you, Heather! But I couldn’t understand more. You have a beautiful family, and you never want to look back wishing that you had spent more time with them. I have really enjoyed reading your blog and trying your recipes (your 2 ingredient fudge is a personal favorite :) ). Good luck with the twins! They will be lucky (and Summer already is lucky) to have such a wonderful, caring mother. Hope to hear from you sometime in the future! <3

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:59 am

Alexandra, I’m going to miss you too! Thanks so much for reading and for your sweet comments. I’ll be back someday, and until then, keep enjoying that fudge! Love, H. :)

Stephanie March 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

So sad to hear it from a selfish perspective, so happy to hear it for you. :) Be well, friend, and more the really good things still lie in front of you!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 8:00 am

Thanks so much Stephanie. :)

Britta March 21, 2012 at 6:38 pm

I am selfishly sad to see you go, but as a long time lurker I could not be happier for you and your beautiful family. Enjoy your time away and I will look forward to the day when/if you decide to come back. Much love!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 8:00 am

Thanks Britta. :)

Dea March 21, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Oh My Gosh. I’m seriously going to cry. But I understand and I am so happy for you. Thank you for more than you can know. You’ve made a HUGE impact on me. (seriously more than you can know.)
Promise me you’ll email if you’re ever in the Bay Area?
much love to you and yours!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 8:01 am

Dea,
No tears. :) I’ll be back someday, and I’ll still be around on Facebook. Thanks so much for all the love and support over these past few years, and I promise to let you know if I’m ever in the Bay Area. I’d love to meet you and your little ones in person someday!

Lara March 21, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Oh Heabie, as much as I hate to see you go, I can completely see how this is what is best for you and your family. I hope we can keep in touch and I can see pictures of those beautiful twins and their big sister. Nothing but big hugs and the BEST wishes for you and your family <3 Love you mucho.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:41 am

Thanks Lara, and I know we will always be friends. Always – who else am I going to text at 3 AM when my baby boy pees in my face during a diaper change? Hehe, I’m pretty sure we’ll have lots to talk about over these next few months/years. Love you!

Meagan March 21, 2012 at 6:57 pm

I was hoping you’d say goodbye for your own sake :) I think blogging is great but it’s way too coming sometimes. That’s why I’ll never be one of those bloggers who blogs a lot a lot

I’ll be thinking of you Heather! God bless with the twins

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:42 am

Thanks Meagan. :)

katie March 21, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Awwwww as much as I will miss reading your posts I am glad you are taking these last few months of being pregnant to enjoy it! I know it has to be tough to blog still, I was surprised you were! I know you must just be super busy with Summer and being pregnant with twins too, you are a rockstar!

Will miss you, will you let us know when those beautiful twins arrive?! I hope so!

Lots of love to you and your family Heather!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:43 am

Hi Sweet Katie, thanks so much for the love and support, and yes, I promise to let you guys know when the twins arrive. :)

Susan March 21, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Totally hear ya, seeing as I recently stopped blogging too. I won’t be upset so long as you still post on Facebook and Instagram. Even if it’s just a picture every months or so. Kapeesh? ;)

Love ya. Reading and getting to know you over these past 3+ years has been an absolute delight. You will never be replaced!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:44 am

Susan, I promise to stick around on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for your friendship these past few years – love you. :)

Melissa @TryingtoHeal March 21, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Ahhh…we’ll miss you! I can’t wait until you come back and we get a glimpse of the two new little ones!!! Best of luck!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:45 am

Thanks for your kindness and friendship over these past few years Melissa. You were one of the first blogs I read and one of the first bloggers I ever met in person. Please stay in touch – I’ll still be around on Facebook. :)

Heather March 21, 2012 at 7:15 pm

I’ve not commented in ages but I’ve been reading. I wish you all the very best as your family enters its next great adventure. This time is fleeting and sacred. Cheers!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:45 am

Thanks Heather. :)

Tracey March 21, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Tears! I pray the best for all of you, Heather! I have loved reading your blog!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 9:46 am

No tears Tracey. I hope to be back someday. Might be a while…but someday. :)

Monica March 21, 2012 at 7:39 pm

I will miss your posts and amazing inspiring food posts. However, I wish you and your family all the best. Enjoy these months before the twins arrive and best of luck on everything. I will be thinking of you guys! Take care!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Thanks Monica. :)

michelle March 21, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I’ve enjoyed reading about your journey in the last couple of years. You are the reason I became addicted to and started my own food blog. I wish you all the best!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Michelle,
Makes me happy to hear that. I wish you the best as well. Thanks for your support and kindness. :)

Emily March 21, 2012 at 7:41 pm

i second what everyone is saying! my heart sank at the first line as i guessed it was coming, but u’ve made the right decision!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Thanks for the support Emily. I hope to be back someday. :)

PT March 21, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Im glad you’re okay!

And you’ll be sorely missed! I check your blog daily! I’ve always admire your outlook on life, food, family, fitness and everything else. I hope you’ll enjoy your quality time with the fam before the twins arrive!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Thanks for reading PT and for you kind words. I’m going to miss all of you as well – a lot! :)

Tabitha March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Ah, wishing you the best of everything, it’s been lovely to watch your life grow.
Thank you

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Thanks Tabitha. :)

Shayla @ The Good Life March 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

You’ll be so very missed Heather!!! Thank you for sharing these past 3.5 years with us…you’re an amazing mother, wife, blogger, and woman and I wish you and your beautiful family the very best!!! :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Wow, thanks Shayla. I wish you the same for you. :)

Scott in Ohio March 21, 2012 at 7:51 pm

First, so glad you + passengers are all ok!

Second, I wish you all the best! Something feels more “final” about this vacation to me.

I hope to still see you and the family on The Book of Face, though!

See ya!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Scott, yeah, feels that way to me as well, but I don’t plan on leaving The Book anytime soon. See you there, and thanks for your friendship and kindness these last couple of years…oh and MANY THANKS for the ice-cream maker and coffee shipments. Love you guys! :)

kalli March 21, 2012 at 7:53 pm

wishing you all of the best. you seem like such an incredible person and i thank you for filling my days with such positive, genuine energy. enjoy! life is good and we should all step away from the computer :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Thanks so much for reading Kalli, and yes, a good reminder for us all. :)

Shirley @ gfe March 21, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Heather, it was so wonderful to meet you a few years back at the POM blogger event! I am excited for you on this next chapter. You’ve got so much else to keep you joyfully busy! Enjoy, dear!

Shirley

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Hi Shirley, so good to hear from you as always. Doesn’t the POM trip seem like so long ago? Thanks so much for your support over the past couple years, and I wish you all the best. :)

Candy @ Healthy In Candy Land March 21, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Aw, we’ll miss you! (But I totally understand.) I wish you all the best for a healthy rest of your pregnancy, two beautiful, healthy babies (and big sis!)and a beautiful life with your family. Take care!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Thanks Candy, I wish the same for you. Gonna miss you guys!

Jen March 21, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I’ve been reading your blog for a little over two years, and it has been such a pleasure to see you and your family grow in new and exciting ways. All the best! :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Thanks Jen. :)

Amanda Y. March 21, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Wow, didn’t see that coming! Hope you are all ok from the accident and sorry to see you go! Hope you’ll keep in touch with all your friends (don’t get too antisocial as many new moms do!) Good luck to you!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Amanda,
Yep, all okay, and no worries about me. I need to get out and often. Otherwise, I go nuts. I know it will be a challenge with having 3 kids, but I will still need my “me” time for sure. :)

Rebecca @ All-American Vegetarian March 21, 2012 at 8:13 pm

Sorry to hear about your car…minivan here you come!

Your blog was one of the first ones I started reading when I first started blogging and I always looked forward to seeing what was happening in the HEAB household – foods, crafts, little ones…

Please take care, enjoy your solo time with your little girl, and rest up for your new bundles!

xo~Rebecca

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Thanks so much Rebecca – for the support, kind words, and for your well wishes. All the best to you. :)

Jes Suazo March 21, 2012 at 8:18 pm

So sad! I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now & have really enjoyed it!

Hope to one day here about the sweet twins. Enjoy your time focusing on many other things.

One quick question!! Where did you get your skirt in the picture?! I love it!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Jes,
I know – it’s bittersweet for me too. I’m sad but really excited and happy for the adventures that await our growing family, and I promise to let you guys know when the twins arrive.

The skirt is new, and I LOVE it. Just ordered it last week from here: http://www.thaidye.com/item/jersey_skirt

Nana March 21, 2012 at 8:18 pm

All the best with your family, Heather.
Your blog was one of my first introductions to food/lifestyle blogs and it has been wonderful watching your family grow.

I will be forever grateful for your introduction to Justin’s Maple Almond butter :)

Nana

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Nana,
Thanks for your kind words and for reading my blog. That Justin can do no wrong. :)

Wendy K March 21, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I just found your blog, and am really enjoying it! I guess I’ll keep busy reading past posts until you’re back :) . Blessings to you and your family as you prepare for your two new little ones!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Thanks Wendy. I’m glad you found me – you have some reading to do! Hope to be back someday. :)

Annie March 21, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Wow… I can’t believe it but I’m so happy for you. I found you three years ago when I was doing an internet search for Almond Butter.. and I saw Heather Eats Almond Butter and VOILA a fan was born. Your blog was the first blog I read on a regular basis… I even learned how to subscribe!

One of the things I’ve always admired about you is your no-nonsense sense of fun (is that an oxy moron? LOL).. what I mean is that you have your head on straight and your priorities are set AND you’re able to look at life in a unique, light and flirty way… and THAT is very cool.

I have enjoyed getting to know you, CD, Summer and the pups… enjoyed your wit and wisdom (especially for someone so young).. and your love and zest for life. I do hope you do a birth announcement when the twins come just to let us know you and the twins are okay.. until then, I will continue to pray for you all. (P.S. I leave tomorrow for Nashville for parents weekend at Vanderbilt… maybe I’ll run into you at whole foods LOL)..

Good luck and Great love to you and yours,
Annie in Oklahoma

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Annie,
Yes, we go way back. I love hearing from people that found me by googling almond butter and then stuck around. Warms my heart. :)

I promise to let everyone know when the twins arrive, and yes, please be on the lookout for me. We don’t live too far from Vandy. I’ll be the one with the belly. :)
Enjoy your time in Nashville!

Ellen in NJ March 21, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Heather, I have to admit my heart sank as I read the title of your post. I’ve been a subscriber to your blog for probably 3 years. I can’t tell you how much of a positive impact you’ve had on me. Even though we’ve never met, you feel like a friend. So many things you’ve talked about in your blog, always spoken from your heart, have enabled me to emerge from an abusive relationship and give myself permission to be strong and positive. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you’ve written about! Summer is such a sweetheart – you are so blessed, and CD too. And I want to thank you for introducing Goddess Leone at just the time I needed her. Hope you’ll be back when the time is right! God bless!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Ellen,
Wow, thanks for this comment – reminds me why I started blogging in the first place. I’m so happy to hear that you got so much from my posts…and Goddess Leonie? Well, she’s just amazing, and I’m glad she is now in your life. I hope to be back someday. Not sure when, but someday, and I wish you all the best. Thanks again. :)

Kay Rasmussen March 21, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I was excited to go on the journey to being a Mom of twins with you. Memories are pretty amazing. Enjoy your pregnant time! My daughter was 23 months old when the twins were born. It was a crazy fun time.
I was not “early” with the twins, they were 13 lbs total. I was almost as big around as I am tall! I had a 60 inch waist and I am 5’4. I topped out at 204:) There were about 15 people in the room when I delivered vaginally. The twins were 12 minutes apart.
May God Bless you and your family!!!
Blessings, K

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Kay,
Ahhhh, I love hearing from other moms of twins – and I only ever hear good things. That’s awesome your twins weren’t early, and that they weighed that much – that’s my hope. Also hoping for a vaginal birth…but perhaps with fewer people in the room. :)
Take care and thanks for reading!

Stephen March 21, 2012 at 8:32 pm

As a longtime fan and reader of this blog I’m sad to see it go but obviously you’re doing it for something much more important. I hope all goes well with the growing family. Thanks for all the inspiration!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Thanks for reading Stephen. Hope to be back someday. :)

Cherie March 21, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Welcome to the world of minivans, lol!

You will be so missed! I’ve really enjoyed getting to share your blog with you for the last couple of years. Thank you Heather, Chris and Summer for letting us into your lives! You are such a special family and I wish you all the best! Good luck with the twins, it’s going to be such an amazing experience! If you ever need to just talk to another twin mom, you know you can always email me! Lots of love and happiness to all of you! Take care!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Cherie,
Going minivan shopping tomorrow! Thanks for you kindness over these past few years – I always enjoyed reading your sweet comments, and yes, any twin advice is always welcomed. I just joined a local parents of multiple group. I have so many questions, from sleeping to breastfeeding to strollers. It’s a lot to think about.

Balancing Sylvia March 21, 2012 at 8:42 pm

(sniff) Thank you so much for your fantastic posts and for stopping by my own little blog. I’ll very much miss your posts but I’m wishing you and your family all the best!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Sylvia,
Wipe away those tears! I hope to be back someday. :)
Thanks for your kind words, and I wish the same for you.

Jen March 21, 2012 at 9:04 pm

I’ll really miss visiting here for daily updates, Heather! What a beautiful and inspiring site you’ve created. Thank you. And best wishes.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Jen, I’m going to miss all of you as well. Thanks for reading and for your kind words. I hope to be back someday. :)

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) March 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Oh Heabie I totally understand. I also want to thank you for encouraging me to start my blog. I wouldn’t have done so without your support. And therefore I wouldn’t have met you in person, nor all the wonderful friends I’ve made over the past 2-3 yrs through blogging. So hugs to you and the fam and we will stay in touch of course <3 And one day we will meet at a Subway in the middle of the desert- can't wait!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Love you Deb and so looking forward to our Subway meet up. Been craving turkey sandwiches like crazy with lots of pickles and banana peppers! :)

Marie March 21, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Thank you for the time and effort you have put into your blog these past 3 years. I don’t remember how I first ran across it, but I’m so grateful I did. I have learned so much from the things you’ve shared, and I am a better person because of you. Thanks for sharing yourself- and best of luck as your little family grows!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Marie,
And I’m grateful you found me, however it happened and thank you for reading and for your kind comment. :)

Abbey March 21, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Heather, you have been such an inspiration to me and you helped get me back on track when I was struggling with some food issues. I have enjoyed reading and hope you do come back periodically to check-in. I completely understand your desire to spend time with your family, it is so important! The wee ones grow so quickly, as I am finding out myself. I wish you all the best and hope you have a relatively painless and safe delivery of your babies. xo

p.s. summer is too darn cute.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Abbey,
I wish you the best as well. Thanks for reading over these past few years, and I hope all is well with you and your little one – it does go by way too fast, huh? Take care and much love to you and your little family. ;)

Tricia March 21, 2012 at 10:11 pm

So sorry to see you go. I have been following you for over a year now and have enjoyed it so much. Why are all the blogs I follow closing shop? I understand about needing to change your focus; our children deserve our time more than the blogging world. Good Luck with your pregnancy and I hope your birth goes according to your plans.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Tricia,
I’m sorry to – it’s bittersweet. Although I’m sad in a way, I know it’s for the best. I’m going to miss you guys, but it’s time. Thanks so much for the support, and I hope to be back someday!

dawn March 21, 2012 at 10:16 pm

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Dawn,
I’m always just an email away. :)

Priscilla March 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I’m sad to say that this is probably my first comment and on your last blog post at that. Just wanted you to know that I’ve truly enjoyed your blog over the past couple years. You are SO real and relatable, and while I go through phases with other blogs/ bloggers, you were always a constant. Thank you for sharing your life, your family, your wisdom, and your time with all of us. I am truly saddened to see you go. Wishing you and your beautiful, growing family all the best.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Priscilla,
Well, better late than never. :) Thanks so much for reading over the past couple of years, and I’m honored to hear that I was one of your constants. I wish you all the best as well, and I hope to be back someday!

Courtney (peaceloveandsweat) March 21, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Congratulations on the twins! I’m so sad to hear that you’ll be leaving HEAB-you were one of the first blogs I ever read! But I’m also so excited for you :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Thanks Courtney. Although I’m going to miss all of you terribly, I’m really excited about the adventures that await our growing family. I do hope to be back someday. :)

Courtney (peaceloveandsweat) March 23, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I’ll also miss the way you care about your readers and reply to their comments :) And Summer just keeps getting cuter!
:)

Laura @ She Eats Well March 21, 2012 at 10:33 pm

I didn’t see that coming, wow! I don’t know you, but have really enjoyed your posts over the past years. Your tone and outlook is refreshing, down to earth, funny, and warm. Congratulations on your expanding family. Summer is so beautiful!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Laura,
Surprise. :) I’ve been saying I was going to stop blogging for a while now, and I think the time has finally come. Thanks so much for reading over the past few years and for your kind words. Going to miss you guys!

Katie March 21, 2012 at 10:40 pm

If that little girl of yours wasn’t so adorable, I’d be upset right now. But, as it is, how could you NOT want to spend more time with her than the internet? I get it, but I will miss you!

Your food was what drew me in, your personality kept me coming back and your crafts of late make me smile daily.

HUGS and good luck with everything!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Katie,
I’ll still be around on Facebook, and you have my email. I have always enjoyed your blogging – your sense of humor, recipes, and YOUR craftiness. Please stay in touch!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:42 pm

P.S. totally left out that I love you for your love of mustard and all condiments! :)

Jane March 21, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Best of luck in everything, and especially the twins arrival! I will miss hearing from you, but totally understand your reasons!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Thanks Jane. :)

Bec March 21, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I am devastated! I have recently started on an eating plan recommended by a naturopath for better health and energy. I discovered your blog only a few weeks ago and your recipes and advice were perfect for me!

Best wishes for the rest of your pregnancy, and being a mummy to Summer and the twins.

B.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Bec,
Thanks so much for reading – I’m glad you found me, and I hope things continue to go well with the naturopath. I plan on leaving all of my old posts and recipes up, and hopefully, I’ll be back someday posting more! Take care and best of luck to you. :)

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel March 21, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Sorry to see you go, Heather – maybe someday we’ll link up for an Oscars party :)

In the meantime, Brent and I arrived in Nashville about an hour ago and I came directly to your Nashville recs for suggestions on things to do in the city!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Abby,
I would love that, and I had no idea you were coming to Nashville. I hope you & Brent enjoy your time here!

Lena March 21, 2012 at 11:00 pm

IT’s sad to see you go…will definitely miss this. thank you for sharing your lives with us. I truly enjoyed reading your blog and yours was one that truly inspired me!
Here’s wishing you, CD, Summer and the twins all the best in a new chapter of you lives!
Hope to have you back again someday. Hey, If you all ever make a trip to Singapore, you could let me know and i’ll show you around.

;) take care and God Bless!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Thanks so much Lena – that means a lot, and you’ll be the first to know if I’m ever in Singapore. I’d actually love to visit there someday! I wish you all the best as well and thanks again for the support. :)

Alyssa March 21, 2012 at 11:22 pm

We’ll miss you, but it’s wonderful that you’re taking care of yourself and your family!
Good luck with everything!!!!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Thanks Alyssa. :)

Howard From Seattle March 21, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Heather,
Thank you for making my day a little brighter with your blog,
Thank you for the truly amazing recipes,
Thank you for “Pancake Sundays” – these posts were my absolute favorite,
Thank you taking the time to respond to my questions via email,
Thank you for making me smile,
Thanks for just being you…
And I hope “Bye-bye” isn’t forever.
Howard

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Dearest Howard, my favorite fan of pancakes,
Thanks so much for the support over these past few years. I do hope to be back someday…after all, there are way too many pancakes recipes I haven’t tried! Take care. :)

Hanna March 21, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Oh no! But it sounds like a great decision. Do you think we could get one teeny update when the twins arrive, just so we know it all went well? Thank you for your lovely blog and good luck!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Thanks Hanna, and yes, I promise a twin update when they arrive. :)

Deirdre March 21, 2012 at 11:58 pm

Goodby and God bless. Your blog has been great, your family is beautiful go enjoy every moment.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Thanks so much Deirdre. :)

Joanna March 22, 2012 at 12:02 am

Wishing nothing but the best for you and your family.

Georgia March 22, 2012 at 12:07 am

Oh Heather, you will be missed dearly!
I wish you and the family every happiness in the future and hope you pop back to update us from time to time :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Georgia,
And I’m going to miss all of you guys! Thanks so much for your well wishes, and I do hope to be back someday. :)

Health Bee March 22, 2012 at 12:58 am

Glad to hear everything is ok. Will miss you so much.

Wish you, CD, Summer & the twins the best.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Health Bee, thanks so much. I’m going to miss you guys too! :)

STUFT mama March 22, 2012 at 1:41 am

Oh Heather-
First of all, so sorry about your car. Thank goodness no one was hurt. Definitely time for a minivan. :)
I will miss your blog dearly as it was one of my very first inspirations to start blogging. Putting family first is the most important thing though. Especially right now before things really get crazy (since I know from first hand experience). :)
Please, please, please keep in touch. I need a little dose of HEAB every now and then and I can talk twin stuff for hours! :)
Cyber hugs and good thoughts coming your way.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:55 pm

STUFT,
Thanks so much for your support and kind words, especially over these past few months. I definitely plan to stay in touch – after all, you are my twin guru. Love you. :)

Marty March 22, 2012 at 1:59 am

Aghhhhhhhh!!!!! A total surprise!

OMG, I’m so glad you weren’t hurt, and Summer, as I’m presuming she was with you?! And the twins?! I’ve been in 2 car accidents in the past 6 years, and they can be traumatic, even fender benders!

Im sad! I will miss your updates, your family, your recipes, your stories, and pictures! And hearing how your pregnancy is going, the twins arrival, and hearing how big Sister Summer is loving her new sister and brother.

I will pray every day that God bless you, CD, Summer, and the twins, and of course the pups. I will also pray that you will return to us all, because we will miss you so, so, so much! I might have to just come visit Nashville next year after I finally move to NC! Xoxo m

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Marty,
I wasn’t driving. Summer and I were safely at home. :) Don’t be sad – we’ll still be in touch. Promise, and I hope to get back to blogging someday. :)

Tita March 22, 2012 at 2:14 am

Eventhough I didn’t write many comments, I enjoyed EVERY blog you wrote and read it with my morning coffee.
Thank You for bringing your love, creativity and your beautiful family to us.
Let your path be full of daisies and bright stars… and I will patiently wait for any news you might wanna share again.
Huge hugs all over the ocean….
Tita

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Thanks so much Tita. I wish the same for you, and I do hope to be back someday. So, please don’t forget about me! Take care. :)

Kate March 22, 2012 at 6:33 am

So sad to read this, but I think you are making a good decision for yourself and your family. You do not need any new stresses in your life right now. You will be greatly missed. Thanks for all the wonderful posts!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Thanks Kate. :)

Jenny March 22, 2012 at 6:45 am

Heather,
I was saddened but not surprised to read your news. As a stay-at-home mom of three wonderful children I applaud your decision. You are focusing on what truly matters. Best to you! Thanks for a wonderful blog and for being an inspiration to so many!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Thanks so much Jenny. :)

Stephanie March 22, 2012 at 7:03 am

Good luck to you and your family! Congratulations (again) on the twins! Enjoy every minute!!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Thanks Stephanie, I plan to. :)

Francesca March 22, 2012 at 7:05 am

Good luck! It’s always good to take a step back and appreciate what you have. Enjoy your beautiful family! Hopefully you’ll post some pictures when the twins are born. Enjoy!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Francesca,
Thanks so much and yes, I promise an update whenever the twins decide to make an appearance. :)

MaryBe March 22, 2012 at 7:09 am

I’m sad for me, but happy for you! Yours was one of the first blogs I ever read, and I feel like it was you who showed me it was okay to eat good, healthy nut butters. My children are all grown up (22, 25, and 28) but I was a stay at home Mom too and those were seriously the best years. Enjoy them because they are gone too soon!
All the best <3

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 3:00 pm

MaryBe,
Yes, it’s so okay. :) I glad you found me and that you’re now loving on some nut butters. That makes me smile. Thanks for understanding, and I wish you all the best as well.

Colleen Stewart March 22, 2012 at 7:13 am

Oh Heather I will really miss you!!! I totally understand. Family comes first :) Best of luck with the birth of the twins. Sure hope you let us all know when they arrive! Enjoy your family!!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Thanks for reading and for your support. I always enjoyed reading your comments, and I promise an update when the twins arrive! :)

Kellie March 22, 2012 at 7:44 am

Blessings to you and your sweet family. You will be missed…

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Thanks Kellie. I’m going to miss you guys too!

ashley March 22, 2012 at 7:45 am

Oh my, I just teared up reading that! I am going to blame it on pregnancy hormones : ) But in all seriousness, I’ve loved your blog so much, but can definitely understand the need for a long break…this is definitely a change of season in your life, in an absolutely wonderful, blessed way. I was pregnant with my second son the same time you were pregnant with Summer (we were a month apart), and now am pregnant with our third, due in June! So even though your story and recipes were originally how I found your blog, it’s been really great hearing about your journey into motherhood. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!!

Oh, and I predict you are going to LOVE your Odyssey : ) I love ours (as does my husband…it was actually his idea – funny, huh?)

Many blessings to you and your family, take care…

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Ashley,
Your third – congrats, that is awesome. We will be a household with three kids come this summer. Can you believe it?!? Thanks so much for reading for these past couple of years, and wish us luck – we go minivan shopping tomorrow. :)
I wish you and your growing family all the best.

Emily March 22, 2012 at 8:23 am

Sending much love you you and the family. Sad to hear you’ll be gone for awhile, but so happy for you guys and what is to come.

Thank you for introducing me to/getting me hooked on: iherb, yogadownload, 2-ingredient fudge, sunbutter, baker’s chocolate, oat bran, tahini+nutritional yeast on veggies (!!), giving myself permission to relax the rules and live my life instead of obsessing, and for giving me hope for the future, and a day when i can truly feel good in my own skin. :)

namaste heather <3

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Emily,
Haha – you basically just listed all of my favorite things, and I’m so happy to hear you’re relaxing the rules. Makes life a little more fun, no? Take care and stay on your current path. I think it’s a good one. :)

Maren March 22, 2012 at 8:36 am

Hope you get the minivan! ;) Very sad to see you go, but definitely understand your reasoning! Hope all goes well with the rest of your pregnancy and I look forward to seeing updated pics on Instagram :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Maren,
Me too – we go minivan shopping tomorrow! Thanks for the well wishes, and yep, you’ll still be seeing me on Instagram. Take care and much love to you. -H. :)

Kristy March 22, 2012 at 9:02 am

Heather, I only recently subscribed, but I’ve been reading your blog off and on for about a year since I discovered it while searching for one of my loves – almond butter! Thank you for introducing me to oat bran and coconut butter and so many cool and healthy ideas! Thank you for sharing your life and struggles and for helping me to see a different way to eat.

God bless and keep you and your family! If you’re ever in Puerto Rico, let me know. I’ll greet at the airport with some oaties! ;)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Kristy,
I love hearing from those who found by googling almond butter. :) And now you know all about oat bran and coconut butter too – that puts a smile on my face! Glad you found me and thanks for reading. Blessings to you as well, and I would love to visit Puerto Rico someday. So, you better have those oaties ready! :)

Ameena March 22, 2012 at 9:07 am

Sorry about the car! But I totally understand the need to focus on your family…and your readers will always be around waiting for you to return!

I’m so happy for you all the good things that are coming your way. Take care Heather! I hope you’ll keep us updated on Facebook. :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Ameena,
Thanks for reading and for your comments that always make me smile. I’ll still be around and will definitely be on Facebook. :)

Jen March 22, 2012 at 9:18 am

No! :( But, that’s selfish of me.
What a journey this has been! Thank you for the inspiration over the last couple of years!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Jen,
Thanks for reading. :)

Ella March 22, 2012 at 9:29 am

Sorry about the fender bender and glad no one was injured.
It is a sad day for all of your readers to lose you, it just feels like a death in the family. I wish you well! Take care of yourself and the family.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Thanks Ella. I wish you all the best as well. Take care, and I hope to be back someday. :)

Lora March 22, 2012 at 10:01 am

I’ve never commented before, however I read every post that comes.
I’m so sad for me that I won’t have the pleasure of reading your posts for awhile… BUT so happy for you that you have so much exciting stuff happening that you need to focus on!

Know we will all welcome you back whenever you’re ready and sending you the happiest thoughts and well wishes in the meantime.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Thanks so much Lora. :)

Anne Marie@New Weigh of Life March 22, 2012 at 10:20 am

Glad everyone is okay. I’ll miss reading your blog but that’s wonderful that you are spending the last few weeks with the people you love most!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Anne Marie,
Yes, all okay. Summer and I weren’t even involved. Thanks so much for understanding. Hope to be back someday. :)

jonell March 22, 2012 at 10:24 am

You have become such a part of my daily routine! Best of luck to all of you…and please, drop us a line to let us know when the twins arrive.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Jonell,
That makes me smile – hope to be part of your daily routine again someday, and yes, I promise a twin update whenever they decide to arrive. Thanks for reading. :)

Katie March 22, 2012 at 10:29 am

Ahh, Heather! Best of luck!! You are such a good mama – those three kiddos are blessed to have you!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Thanks so much Katie. :)

Kami March 22, 2012 at 10:34 am

I totally understand, but just BOO. I enjoy your blog. I really hope you pop back on to update us. Hugs. Enjoy the time with your family. xoxo

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Kami,
I know – it’s bittersweet, but definitely time for a blogging hiatus. Hope to be back someday. Thanks for reading and hugs to you as well. :)

Marina March 22, 2012 at 10:39 am

I am sad you’re going away, but of course you’re doing the right thing for you and your beautiful family. Enjoy, soak up the wonderful moments, and keep in touch, from time to time :)
I wish you and your family all the best ;)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Thanks Marina, and yes, I hope to check in with you guys every once in a while. I’m going to miss all of you!

The Dainty Pig March 22, 2012 at 10:49 am

Thank you lovely Heather, for all your hard work in making your blog one of my all time favourites to read!! I’ll miss you for sure, but am so happy that you are making whatever space you need in your life.
big hugs!!!
xoxo jess

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Hi Jess, I’m going to miss all of you as well. Thanks for always reading, and I wish you all the best. You have my email if you ever want to chat. :)

Rachel C March 22, 2012 at 10:55 am

HEAB was my very first exposure to the blog world. Thank you!

Wishing you all the very best. Take care.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Rachel C,
Really? I’m honored. Thanks for reading, and I wish you all the best as well. :)

janetha March 22, 2012 at 11:15 am

I am sorry about your accident! Glad everyone is OK. I love that you know when to pull the plug on blogging and concentrate on what matters most–family (dogs included!! of course!) I love you to pieces and am so happy to know you–ever since I started my blog I have read yours and you are truly an amazing person. And momma! Love you, HEABs.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:33 pm

JG Bean, yep, everyone okay. Summer and I weren’t even involved. :) You know I love you too, and someday we will meet in person. It’s gotta happen. :)

Becca @ Blueberry Smiles March 22, 2012 at 11:49 am

Thank you for being such a positve role model the past few years! Your blog is terrific, but I think you’re making the right choice. Best of luck to you and your adorable family!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Thanks so much Becca. I think it’s the right choice as well. It’s time. :)

Julie March 22, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Oh, no! I love your blog and feel like I’ve gotten so much out it – some of my favorite recipes included! But I understand completely and I hope you and your family take care! Please post an update after the twins arrive!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:31 pm

Thanks so much Julie. I hope to be back someday posting recipes. Not sure when but someday. However, I will definitely let all you know when the twins arrive. Promise. :)

Lori Z. March 22, 2012 at 2:13 pm

You will be missed!! Wishing you and your family only the best! Take care!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Thanks Lori. Going to miss you guys too!

Mandy March 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Ah so sad and I totally get it! Good for you. You will be SORELY missed, my friend! Maybe tiny FB updates on the babes? xo

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Mandy,
Ha, about some big updates? I don’t plan on leaving FB anytime soon. :)
Going to miss you guys too!

beth March 22, 2012 at 2:34 pm

i agree with dawn…i cannot imagine life without your blog, thank you for brightening my food blahs, ditto the inspirational vibes due to your fitting honest, open, willing, quirky (not) love of life’s offerings. i identify with your ‘fella readers, many thanks, and hope many blessings and peace in the near future. xo

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Beth,
You’re so welcome, and thank you for reading. Many blessings to you as well, and I hope to be someday. :)

Cara (Twinthusiast) March 22, 2012 at 2:54 pm

You take care of yourself and your little ones :) Wishing you a fantastic remainder of your pregnancy, an easy delivery, and lots of love-filled first weeks with your babies!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Thanks Cara. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me over these next few months and after the twins arrive. Your blog has already helped so much, and it’s encouraging to see how happy and healthy Caroline and Kelly are – they make me smile in every one of your posts. You make it look easy. :)

Nicole March 22, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Heather– I’ve been pretty under the radar since I stopped blogging in 2009, but I never stopped reading your blog. I’m wishing you all the very best!!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:26 pm

Thanks so much Nicole. All the best to you as well. :)

Julia March 22, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Good luck with everything, Heather! I’ve read your blog every day since first discovering it about two years ago. It made a huge impact on my life, as it helped me re-evaluate my relationship with food (fat in particular) and set me on a much healthier path.
So thank you! And all the best!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Julia,
I’m so happy to hear it. Comments like yours remind me why I started blogging in the first place – to help others. I’m thankful my blog spoke to you in some way, and that you’re on a better path. Take care, and I wish all the best to you as well. :)

Rachel @ I'm Loving Today March 22, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Ahhhh… I’ll miss reading your updates, Heather! But I COMPLETELY understand your decision – you’ve got some very important things going on. Whenever I get to Nashville (hopefully this summer!) I just may have to steal you for a Tweed shopping spree (even if’s it’s just window shopping). Take care of yourself! :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Rachel,
I’ll still be around, and I would love to meet up if you ever make it to Nashville. I’ll start saving up for a little Tweed shopping spree. :)

JJ March 22, 2012 at 4:58 pm

I started eating almond butter because of your blog!!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:23 pm

JJ,
Then I consider my job as a blogger complete.
Thanks for reading. :)

Felicia March 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Love you Heather. You were the first blog I ever started reading…and the first one to open my eyes to the world of eating more fats without being terrified!! You inspired me in so many way over these years- more than you know. I wish you and your beautiful family the best! We will miss you terribly and I’ll always think of you when I make those oaties :)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Felicia,
Ha, I think of YOU whenever I make the Oaties b/c I know you and your family love them. Thanks for sticking with me over the last few years – and for your kind comments. I’m going to miss you guys too – lots and lots. Take care Felicia. Love, H. :)

Michelle March 22, 2012 at 6:33 pm

I haven’t been much of a commenter on your blog, but I’ve enjoyed it tremendously. I especially appreciate your thoughts about finding out what works for you food-wise by trying different approaches and paying attention to what your body is telling you. It’s inspired me to experiment with some dietary changes.

I’ve also admired how positive you are and how thoughtful you are about recognizing and appreciating others, including making an effort to link to other blogs and meet fellow bloggers like MamaPea and Pure2Raw.

I’m glad to hear you’re keeping your posts up, so I can refer back to your recipes :-)

All the best to you and your family.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Michelle,
Thanks for the comment. I started this blog to help others, and when I hear I actually helped or inspired someone – well, it just makes me so happy. I wish you all the best as well, and yes, old posts aren’t going anywhere. :)

liz dean March 22, 2012 at 7:11 pm

I’ll miss you!!! But I’m so happy for you, CD & summer….enjoy these last couple months of sanity!! lol
Oh, and obviously….so happy everyone was okay after the accident!!!!

xo
liz

ps…I’ll mail you some soul seasoning so you don’t forget me! ;)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Liz,
I could never forget my soul seasoning supplier. :) Yes, everyone is okay after the accident. Summer and I were not involved. Thanks for reading and for your sweet comments and emails – they always bring a smile to my face. Take care – I’m going to miss you guys too!

Kristen @ Mind Your Bees and Trees March 22, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Awww so sad that you’re leaving the blogosphere, but I admire you so much for wanting to spend this precious time with your family! You inspired me to start my own blog so you’ll always hold a special place in my heart :) I can’t wait for the day we can meet up in Nashville! Take care…you’ll be dearly missed!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Kristen,
Thanks so much for reading, and it makes me smile to know that I inspired you in some way. Hope everything goes well with the move, and yes, I can’t wait for our Nashville meet up either. Take care. :)

heather March 22, 2012 at 10:11 pm

sad to see you go, but so excited for you! good luck with the twins, you guys are going to be so happy.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Thanks Heather. It’s bittersweet, but I’m excited for all the adventures that await our growing family. Take care. :)

Cynthia (It All Changes) March 22, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Heather I’ve been reading for so long. I’m so happy for you, CD and Summer as you prepare for the twins. The dogs will be great too. Enjoy it all!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Cynthia,
Yeah, you and I go way back. Thanks so much for sticking with me all these years. Take care, and I wish you all the best. :)

Kelly @Foodie Fiasco March 22, 2012 at 11:03 pm

NOO!!!! I miss you already, Heather. You are such an amazing, amazing person and friend, and I am so grateful to be able to say I know you. You touch the life of everyone you meet, you are loved, and you will be missed. ;)

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Kelly, I’m going to miss you guys too – a lot! Thanks so much for reading and for your sweet comments. I hope to be back someday. :)

Mel @ MelRuns March 23, 2012 at 10:04 am

It’s been lovely reading your blog for the past two years :) thanks for your inspiring spirit, recipes, projects, and outlook on life. Now you can go eat anything you want right out of empty peanut butter jars and you don’t have to tell a SOUL! It’s the little things, right? ;)

I wish you and your growing wonderful family all the best.

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Mel,
Ha, yes! So true – no need to ever try and make the nut jar slop pretty again. It’s kind of a good feeling. :) Thanks for sticking with me, and I wish you all the best as well. Take care.

Ashley March 23, 2012 at 10:53 am

Selfishly, I am sad to see you go! For your sake, I am happy that you are making the decision to focus on your beautiful family… and convincing CD to buy you the minivan ;)

Your journey and your blog have been so inspirational. Thank you!

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Haha, I have a feeling that minivan will be mine soon! Thanks for your kind words and for reading. Take care Ashley, and I hope to see you guys again someday. :)

Melissa B. March 23, 2012 at 11:24 am

Aww, best wishes to you, your family, and your upcoming twins! Your blog has been wonderful to read, and you are such a sweet, kind, smart, and talented lady!

Take care, and we will be waiting for you, if you are ready to come back :)

Hugs,
Melissa

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Thanks so much Melissa B. I hope to be back someday…I gotta come back as I’m determined to break your plank hold record from the HEAB challenge. Take care, and a big hug to you as well. Thanks for reading these past couple of years!

Melanie March 23, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I felt like this time was coming, and I’m sad about it, because you’re the only food blogger with whom I’ve really felt an affinity. But I’m also so happy for you, because I know you’ve got such great things in store. I hope that life brings you back to this blog at some point, but I understand if it doesn’t. I’m grateful that we are Facebook friends, and I want so much to keep in touch. You’ve brought encouragement to some of my darkest days. Much love,

Mel

HEAB March 23, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Mel, thanks so much, and I hope to return to this space as well. Not sure when, but someday, and I’ll definitely be on Facebook. So, please keep in touch.
P.S. I unpacked the owl sleep sack you knitted for Summer today. I’m getting all the newborn clothes ready for the twins. Thanks again for making it for her. It meant a lot. :)

Stephanie March 23, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I haven’t commented much, but I have really enjoyed reading your blog for probably almost 2 years now–I’m sad to see you go, but it seems like such a wise decision in light of all of the exciting changes that will happen to you and your family soon! Your blog has definitely been a source of creative ideas for healthy food combinations, and I hope that you’ll be back someday. Take care, and best of luck with everything! Also, those pictures of Summer are just too cute!

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Hi Stephanie,
Thanks for sticking with me these past couple of years. I’m sad too – I’m going to miss all of you! I do hope to be back someday…not sure when but someday. :)

gina (fitnessista) March 23, 2012 at 10:35 pm

i’ve loved reading your blog from the very beginning, and so glad that the blog world introduced me to you :) you are a beautiful soul, a role model of a mom, and a wonderful friend
i might have to text you more often now, though ;)
please let me know when you’re in AZ again if it’s not too crazy, and when you’re ready to come back, i call dibs on hosting your welcome back to the blogworld party on my blog :)

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Gina,
You’re one of the first blogs I ever read, and you were at my first ever blogger meet-up. Can you believe it’s been over 3 years since we first met? Thanks so much for you friendship and kindness over these past few years. I am so happy for you and your little family, and please text me anytime. I look forward to seeing you next time we’re out west…whenever that may be, and I’d love a welcome back party on Fitnessista. Love you! :)

kendra March 23, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Hi heather- I just found your blog in December and have been truely inspired by your story and recipes. I too lost weight about 5 years ago, 65 pounds. But I am still struggling with finding what foods work with my body and losing the last 20 pounds to make me feel really good and healthy. Vegan/healthy food blots have been helping me on my journey to my goal. I just wanted to say hi and thank you and good luck with your family. :)

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Kendra,
Congrats on your weight loss – that’s awesome, but yeah, it’s hard to find that good balance, even after losing so much weight. You think, OK, I found something that works, but then those last few pounds can be super stubborn! I hope you continue on your current journey, and that you’re able to find what works for you. Best of luck and thanks for reading – I’m glad you found me (better late than never)! :)

Faith (Gracefulfitness) March 24, 2012 at 8:02 am

Congrats on your pregnancy! And congrats on deciding to take a break, I’m sure it was a hard decision. I’ll miss HEAB but thanks for everything already!

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Heather, I’m really sorry to hear that you will be away from the blog but think it’s great you are focusing on your family. I wish you the best and thanks for all the kindness and support you’ve shown me the past few months. Best wishes.

Thanks Alex and thank you for your sweet comments over these past few months. I wish you only the best – you deserve it. :)

Goodluck with everything Heather.

Thanks Kelly. :)

Thanks for all the blogging over the years! You certainly have enough on your hands right now without the added obligation of blogging.
I hope you are ok after the little car crash! I bet that was worrying with the twins on board and all.

Sara,
Thanks for reading over the years! And yes, we’re all okay. Summer and I weren’t even in the car – we were safe at home. :)

Amelia March 24, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Just want to tell you how much I admire this decision, and how lucky your kids are to have your full attention! As a mom making a living blogging, I often feel like I’m juggling way too much and I hate that my daughter sometimes watches me run to my phone or computer instead of hanging out with her. You are a wonderful mother and best of luck with the arrival of the twins!

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Amelia,
Oh gosh, I totally get it. I find myself spending all of nap time blogging (editing photos, writing posts, answering comments), and I there are so many other things that I need to be doing – the blog just doesn’t really fit in my life right now. It’s hard to find a good balance. Best of luck to you and thank you for your kind words. :)

Anita March 25, 2012 at 12:05 pm

I’m glad you made this decision Heather. I know it’s the right thing to do. I will miss hearing from you very much. First thing’s first. Don’t forget to try to get some rest. I think that’s the most important thing.

Anita March 25, 2012 at 12:07 pm

And don’t worry about a thing. We have all of your recipes to keep us company ! Be well.

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Thanks Anita, and yep, recipes are going no where. :)

Michaela March 25, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Heather, thank you so much for putting your heart and soul into this blog and delighting me with your lovely posts!
Good for you for focusing on your family. We must never forget what is most important in our lives!!
All the best and I hope all goes well with your twins.

HEAB March 25, 2012 at 1:44 pm

I’m sad you won’t be posting as your blog is one of my favorites to read. But, I know you are doing what’s best for your family. They are very blessed to have you! Enjoy your time with your precious little girl.
