Here's to new adventures!

Hi everyone -
Hope you've been well! Things are changing, and I've decided to delete my Facebook account, so I will hopefully be here more often, and on Instagram and Twitter (@shirleysillos).
There were many reasons why I've decided to leave FB, and yesterday seemed the right day to do so...just had a birthday and my husband and I celebrated our big 25th, so I guess I'm reflecting on all of the years that I've been so grateful for. I truly have been so blessed with family, friends, amazing daughters and a wonderful husband, as well as opportunities in my career that don't even feel like work. That truly is amazing to me.

I endeavor to work on my projects with more clarity and focus, and in the off-work times, I'll be spending working on my writing. I'm currently working on manuscripts and revising, revising, revising..it's the name of the game. I am SO excited about this new chapter.

I'll leave this here and hope to reconnect with all of you in the blog world. My very best to you and here's to new adventures to you all! ~ Shirley

  1. Sorry to lose you on Facebook but so glad you will continue to blog. I don't use instagram (facebook owned?) nor use twitter very often, but I do still check my followed blog feed.
    Are you aware of https://ifttt.com (if this, then that) which makes it easy to link up different places you post to so that for instance, a post on instagram could be sent to your blog instantly... it might help.
    Glad to have checked out this post and seen your lovely little bear 😊 Happy Birthay, 25th celebration and good luck with your projects.

  3. I've been "off" FB for 7 months now. I say off since I still have some business things I have to deal with. Around the time of the player protests it became a bit much to handle and it only took one argument/fight with a relative over the matter to feel the need to step, run away. And I haven't missed it at all really. I look forward to following your new adventure here and IG. Also, happy birthday! And yay on the 25! Denise and I make 25 in August. Good things to you!
