Farewell

Posted by April W Gardner on December 12, 2012

Today marks the end of my journey at Reflections on Hindsight. It’s been a fun ride, and I’ve been blessed to be on board from the site’s birth well over two years ago.

There are many benefits to blogging, but the friendships alone that I’ve been privileged to cultivate have made every post worthwhile.

Thank you, Lisa for taking me on, for your everlasting patience, and for being the dear woman you are. I love you!

To the rest of my Reflections blogging buddies and to all my Reflections readers a fond hug and a massive Thank You! Without you, my time here would have been meaningless.

The blogging world isn’t such a big place, so I’m sure I’ll see you around…

Merry Christmas to all!

–April Gardner

    No one put it better than Han Solo when his toolbox dropped on his head in the middle of a battle: OWWWW! PHOOEY! :P I enjoy reading the e-mails I get from here and I will miss them. But I copied the notes in the right-hand margin and will keep them handy. Safe journeys to you all.

  2. I was just cleaning out the bookshelves and there are some books that I HAVE to keep–like yours, April…the best thing is not just meeting and getting to know each other, but working together still in other venues. I’ve appreciated your input and support over the years, all of you. We wouldn’t have gotten to know each other without with Internet groups.

  3. OK, I can’t dwell on the demise of our dearly departed Reflections In Hindsight or I will be hitting the tissue box rather heavily. April, I will dearly miss working side-by-side with you here, but I know we will keep in touch elsewhere. And I’m anxiously looking forward to your next novel. Any time frame??!!

    Hugs and best wishes to you, April!

    • I know, right, Elaine?! Sniffle, sniffle…

      Next novel… well… apart from the Spanish version of Lizzie to release hopefully in January or February… my next historical romance/women’s fic (co-written with Michelle Massaro) is in the hands of our new agent. We’ll see what the Lord has in store for it!

      I’ll be seeing you around, sweetheart. :-)
