Under New Management

by Hallie @ Moxie Wife on June 17, 2014

I did the math and I have written 60 Five Favorites post and “favorited” 300 things over the past year (and four months). That’s a lot of things! No wonder “swoon” is one of my favorite words.

I can’t even tell you how much fun I’ve had, love bugs. Sharing things I love with you, reading all about the things that have touched your hearts and tickled your fancy, and meeting so many new people has been a joy. I’ve had such a ball hosting this link-up, in fact, that I was completely taken by surprise to find myself with a small case of Five Favorites burnout recently.

It makes sense, though. I’m not online as much as I once was so I don’t come across as many things that I love and want to share these days. That makes it hard when it’s time to come up with my list each week.

I started this link-up because I had so many things that I was dying to tell you about and wanted a fun way to do so. Feverishly searching for things late at night on Tuesday because I have five slots to fill and nothing to fill them with kind of defeats the purpose, though (and is definitely not one of my favorite things).

So, after thinking about it, I’ve decided to pass along the Five Favorites torch. Beautiful, hilarious, sweet Heather of Mama Knows, Honeychild has agreed to take over for me and I couldn’t be happier.

Just between you and me, it’s really just all a part of my brilliant plan to force her to post more often. Few people make me laugh the way she does. Her Five Favorites posts are going to be SOLID GOLD. I can just feel it.

Thank you so much for joining me over the past year! I just love you all to pieces and can’t wait to follow along over on Heather’s blog. And when five magical, glorious things that I just have to share with you fall into my lap, I’ll be linking up right alongside of you.

Dear Hallie,
Count on our prayers for you. You are such a source of inspiration. It’s so smart to pass this along if you’re feeling anything but love for it. What a great example to all of us.

You are inspiring so many with your great new e-book. It’s so beautiful to encourage marriage. I pray and hope that nothing negative is coming your way. I sometimes fear that when great Catholics are doing Our Lord’s work, sometimes the dark stuff can come along and get in the way. I have found that in my current situation. Know that we are all praying for you in the NYC area!!

A huge thank you for all the Five Favorites and the community you have created.

Hallie- your favies will be missed! It’s, like, your thing! But, I am excited to see what else Moxie Wife has in store.

And, Heather is ok, so I guess it will be fine ;)

Hallie, you are wonderful! Yours is the first blog I ever started reading.

And your new kindle book on marriage is so good. God bless you for writing it!

Back when Jen Fulwiler was the only Catholic blog I was reading, I came over to yours from one of her links. I completely understand but I’m glad you won’t be giving up blogging entirely!

Thank you for all the fun! Hope to see you posting over at the new joint.
