Very sorry…

but I will be suspending posts on this blog indefinitely. I have had a wonderful time sharing through this blog the Northern Virginia events that I was interested in taking my kids to, and I want to thank all of the readers who sent me messages of condolence after my father died in January.

Following his death and my own upcoming surgery for what is  believed to be a benign breast lump, however, I have reconsidered my priorities and time commitments. I have kept this blog ad-free since its inception and hate the thought of turning it into a newsletter you’d have to pay for. I wouldn’t — that’s why I created this site in the first place. Yes, there are other ways of making money off this type of blog, but I’m not interested in them. If you are, I would be happy to share with you my sources for the events I post, as well as the seasonal activities such as Easter Egg Hunts.

It’s been great, and I wish you and your families all the best.

  3. I am so sorry to read this. I have really enjoyed your posts and knew that as my 15 month old got older, these news items would really come in handy! If you could send me your sources and/or do one more post listing those, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks for being a truly SUPER NoVaMom!

  6. I am so sorry that you are taking time away from this, but obviously the circumstances are quite understandable. I would do the same. I would love if I could get some of your resources to where you find all of these fantastic events. I look at your site every week to see what is new. Your event updates will certainly be missed!

    I wish you well and hope that you do someday return!
