Challenge # 39 : Anything goes/Option with Farewell/Goodbye theme - our last challenge

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great week so far, and the world has been kind to you ...

I have some news to share today....
with great sadness I have to announce that this will be our last Challenge. I am so sorry to close down after only 18 months, but life has thrown me a few curve balls of late, and I need to get my priorities right...As some of you may be aware that I have had a setback with my health and will need to totally focus on getting well again.

This challenge blog and my own personal blog have been my saving grace...when things were tough I always had that release to concentrate on the blogs, but now I have a much bigger challenge ahead of me, and as much as I will miss you all and the wonderful Dragonflies, it's time to say Goodbye.
I really do appreciate everyone that has followed this blog and was very torn to keep going or not...but sometimes you have to make the hard decision....

You have all been so supportive and wonderful. I feel like I have so many new friends, its's been amazing how we can connect over the is full of surprises.
We will also be moving house and renovating......just to add to my list.

There is a season for everything, and my new season has opened up with a bunch of major I am embracing everything new and different......
Change can only be brought about if we are willing to get out of our comfort can't expect anything to change if you keep doing the same ol thing....mmmmh!

So the theme for our last challenge is 
Anything Goes, 
with the option of Farewell/Goodbye

Our sponsor is Pickled Potpourri,

and the winner will be announced in a couple of weeks, which will be the last blog announcement.
So make sure you keep checking back.
