Here's to a Beachy 2010!


Have you missed me?

I started Beach Cottage Love with all good intentions last April, thinking I could keep a second little blog on the side. "Just for fun."

It didn't take long to realize how tough it is to maintain two blogs at once. I thought I could do it all, but--at least for now--I can't. I need to focus on my main blog in the new year instead of spreading myself so thin.

Thanks to everyone who has followed Beach Cottage Love over the past 8 months. Hope I'll see you over at my primary blog residence, Hooked on Houses, in 2010! ~Julia

  3. Oh sad! Can you make it just a summer "fling" type of thing? I understand though - it's so hard to keep one blog going at times let alone one as great as HOH! I just love all the beachie pictures. It makes this So Cal girl who's stuck in the desert feel a little more "at home."

  4. That's ok Julia - maintaining one blog is time consuming enough - especially your wonderful Hooked on Homes blog.

  8. I have missed you here, but I understand. Will you be adding the beach houses to your other blog (at least once in a while)? They are houses after all, and we are hooked on them. You do an amazing job. Thank you.

  18. Hi Julia!
    You were one of the sweetest memories of Blissdom! I did have a good time and loved meeting all of you. If only I would not have let my insecurities get in my way it would have been so much better. I am a work in progress though and I look forward to making Blissdom11
