An Elven Princess' Adventures Are Ending

Hello my dear friends,

This has been a long time coming, but I'm finally ready to officially announce it.

When I started this dear blog...

I was 15 years old, about to be a junior in high school. It was made to be a place to share the creation of my second cosplay, Tauriel, with anyone who would read it.

Well, this blog has grown so much bigger than I ever anticipated when I created it that day in July on a whim.  I've been sharing my mundane adventures with you all for over 2 years now, and have met so many awesome people through this, more than I ever would have thought was possible.

But, guys, there's a time for everything.  The past two years have been a time for blogging and internet friends and costume making and all the other joys I experienced in my amazing final half of high school.  It was the time when I was "An Elven Princess."

But a new chapter in this little life of mine is beginning.  I'm going off to college, Liberty University, in just one week.  I'm taking 6 classes, all of which I'm insanely excited about.  I'm in the Honors Program, which was a huge answer to prayer.  My time will be dominated with going to classes, hanging out with the new friends I make, doing homework, studying, going to football games, and just enjoying life as a college student at the college of my dreams.

But there's the thing: I won't be "An Elven Princess" anymore.  It's time for me to move on.

Where I'm going from here...

Some of you might already know this because I told you, but I'm taking a 1 month (or more) break from Pinterest starting tomorrow, Monday, the 10th of August.  It really just serves as a distraction (an extremely enjoyable distraction, but a distraction none-the-less), and I want to be fully focused on college and I don't want to give myself even more reasons for procrastination... ;)

Now, don't worry!  I'm not going to disappear from the internet for good. ;) One spot you'll always be able to find me is Twitter:

Because it's so quick and easy to be active on there, I'll definitely be hanging around Twitter fairly regularly.  Are you on there???  Shoot me a message on there, because I'd love to follow you back! :)  But basically, that's the only spot you'll be able to find me in the next month or two.

I do have some plans to create a new blog, one which will be designated to my college life, but that's still in the early stages and there's no knowing when it will come to fruition, if at all.  If I do, I'll most definitely post the link to it on here. :)

Lastly, I'm so sad to say goodbye to all you dear followers.  You've meant so much to me over the past years, and I've been so blessed by you and to know you.  So, a thousand thank you's, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing in all my little adventures.  Y'all rock, and I truly mean that. :)

So, after this extremely lengthy post, it's time to say goodbye to The Adventures of An Elven Princess.  It's been so fun guys. 

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
