A little bit French is suffering an identity crisis. Over these past months, I’ve changed the sub-head on this blog so many times I’ve lost count. What is this about? Genealogy? Local history? Family farms? Historic preservation? Chickens?
I’ve been thinking this over for a while now, and I have decided that I’ve outgrown A little bit French.
So much in my life has changed since I started this blog last May. I still enjoy sharing my genealogy and local history adventures, but I also need a place dedicated solely to celebrating my progress and admitting my mistakes as I attempt to rebuild this Historic Hoosier Homestead. So, from now on, my farm adventures will move to a new home: www.landlove.wordpress.com. I will continue to blog at A little bit French, but it will strictly be a genealogy blog – what it was meant to be from the beginning. Specifically, it will be about my mother’s family since it is through her Great Grandmother Lillian (Boicourt) Layton that I am a little bit French.
Some of you may have noticed that starting this blog was really just a way for me to cope with a broken heart. For a while, A little bit French gave me a purpose when I felt I no longer had one. The decision to share some of my writing, for the first time in many years, was a big step for me. To everyone who has read, commented, liked, emailed, or subscribed, you cannot know what your gestures of support have meant to me, and how they have helped me to heal. This has been much more than a blog to me. It has been a way to work through my grief and to move on. Thank you for being a part of this difficult journey with me.
And now, onward, to new adventures!
