I haven’t had the heart (or the time or energy) to update my blog over the last month and a half. Since I last posted my whole world has turned upside down. I will share with you that my husband, you know him as J. Alabama, was seriously injured over in Afghanistan in early June. Baby Jay, myself and some family have been to Germany and then onto San Antonio to be with him. He is still alive and doing better each day, though we are not out of the woods and still have a long road ahead.

I wanted to leave a quick little update here that I will not be blogging here anymore. This blog has been an amazing outlet to share my life but I feel it only appropriate to step away at this time.

Your thoughts and prayers are always welcome. I will still be available through email at destination26.2 at gmail dot com if you would like to check in from time to time.

Thank you all again for your support now and throughout the last three years. It is sad and very hard for me to step away, but due to the nature of this situation it’s the best choice for me and my family.

  4. I first found your blog via Beth’s (oooops Biz) and have enjoyed following your life as a newlywed, the announcement of your pregnancy, and following the days up to the blessed event. Your postings will be missed but take care of your husband and let him know his service for our country is much appreciated! You are all in my prayers.

  6. Although I will miss your blog, I totally understand!! As you know, I’m here for you and thinking of you all often. Never a day goes by that you all aren’t in my thoughts.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Please feel free to let me know if there is anything I can do!

I say that because I know that there are people who read your blog who care about you and want to support you and pray for you and your family. I hope you know that I’ve got your back 100%. If you want to e-mail me about it, if you want to e-mail me and not talk about it at all, if you need a hand with anything here in EP, I’m here for you!

  15. Hi Linz. I have been totally MIA from blogs, but clicked on your link via Instagram to see what you’ve been up to with baby Jay. So so so sorry to read this update. I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through and definitely understand your need for some more privacy during this time. Will be keeping you, J. Alabama and baby boy Jay in my heart and hoping for nothing but the best. Take care of yourself. {{hugs}}
