It's not the end

(I've re written this post so many times it's not even funny anymore.)

Hi everyone!

This probably isn't really the post that you were looking forward to reading but it has to be said.
I'm so sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time!
I just haven't felt very attached to my dolls lately... 
I've barely even touched them since my last post. It's not for any specific reason, I'm not going through anything serious, it's just something that has kinda just happened.
It's been what, pretty much 2 months since I last posted? More? That is pretty out of character for me and I'm surprised myself that I haven't even tried too much to get back into the swing of things. I've been really thinking lately about this blog and what I plan to do with it. (You've probably already guessed where this whole post is going and sadly yes.) I thought that I'd have at least another year of posting on here but after a ton of thought and consideration, I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to quit posting on here. 

This is just as much of a shock to you as it is to me really, but I don't think that this is one of those "take a break for a month" situations. I think I'm seriously done with doll blogging...
I don't hate dolls, it's just that dolls aren't my passion anymore and if something isn't my passion I don't want to force myself to do it. It's kind of crazy how much I've changed within 2 months. I've found other things that I absolutely love the same way that I used to love our doll blogging community! Photography, playing the piano, my friends and family etc. I've moved on, and actually, I'm really glad that I made this blog. It's what I needed at the time. I don't regret it all all. It made me feel needed, and just made me feel like I had a purpose. You guys are the most amazing followers out there. You are always so encouraging, nice, great feedback givers, and just everything that I asked for plus more. I couldn't have asked for better people to follow my blog.
Bella from A Doll's Life was so sweet and commented on my previous post asking me if I was okay because I hadn't posted in such a long time. And I don't think ya'll know how much that means to me! That you guys sincerely care when I'm gone. 
(Btw you should totally go follow her if you haven't already because her blog is amazing ;))

Ya'll are just so amazing, words can't even describe the way I feel towards ya'll. It's been an incredible journey blogging on here. 

But guys, don't fret just yet ;) You'll still get blog posts from me. I'm not totally gone. I'll post on my personal blog Grey Not Blue. It will be my top priority now to post at least every week. If you aren't already following make sure to follow so you don't miss a single post from me! 

I'm so very thankful for my accomplishments that I've made here. They may be small in some people's eyes, but they are huge in mine.

And if you were wondering I am still going to be active in commenting on ya'lls posts, and I will definitely still leave the blog up. I've made way too many memories on here to just erase them with one click of a button. And if ya'll have any questions for me about anything as long as it's not too personal feel free to ask. I'd love to chat with you guys. 

If someone hasn't told you already today, you're beautiful, you're fantastic, you're just plain amazing. Don't ever let anyone or even yourself tell you otherwise.

I'm sure going to miss this.



  1. i'm so very glad you've found things you love more, and am especially proud you haven't been trying to force anything! you've come so far, and i've really loved getting to know you even if we weren't ever really the closest. <3 i look forward to seeing more of you on your personal! :)

  2. Aw, this post was sort of bittersweet. I'm glad you've found other things you love, but I'm sad to see you go! I loved your photography and always looked forward to seeing a post in my feed.:) I will definitely be checking more on your personal blog!:) This was a great blog, Leah, and I have to say I'm so happy you're not deleting it and not leaving the blogosphere completely!;D

    1. Oh Emma! You don't know how much joy it brings me to hear that you looked forward to my posts! Because really, that's all I really wanted to happen with my blog and I'm so very happy that I was able to accomplish it. Thanks for being such an amazing follower. <3

    1. Yes, sadly I will be leaving SBATD as well. :(

  4. That's sooo sad!! Will you be gone forever?

  5. This post brought tears to my eyes. It's so sad to see you go. I've seen so many blogs leave and I feel sad with each one. You are an amazing photographer and blogger.
    I'm so glad to hear that you aren't deleting this blog and that you will be around still. I wish you the best of luck in life and I hope your dreams come true :)

  6. When I saw this post yesterday, I literally cried. I kept promising myself there's more blogs out here like this one, but I found none. I am soo sad.
