Hi, all! :) Hard to believe, but I just posted my final story. I wanted to send one last story post reminder with this journal, while also reminding you that I plan on writing a "goodbye" journal sometime soon, so please save your goodbyes and such for that journal :)

I had a lot of fun writing this one. Blueberry expansion means a lot to me so it was only fitting for my final story. I've planned on writing about blueberry expansion for my final one, so I'm glad I was able to do that. It's also my second-longest single story, which I thought was neat :)

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy my take on the chocolate factory and enjoy the read on my final story. I'll post my final journal soon, so that'll be the next/final post you likely see from me. It's been an amazing ride and I love you all!

Thanks for reading! :tighthug: :heart:

Real life does take over.  Drop by from time to time, to see how things are going.

You have done well for yourself.

Quite depressing really but I'm sure there are reasons, life really. Been a fan of your work for YEARS. And I do mean that since I have years on here, 8 to be exact. Sure my profile and everything else is blank, made false promises and the such but I was around when others were starting. Just so happened to find yours.
You are among the few people that I followed and are leaving, just like them. The older folks here seem to be leaving for greener pastures or just going on with thier life and sooner or later, I might do the same. Who knows.

All in all I'm glad I found you so many years ago and I hope you fo well. This should be saved for your real final journal but I feel this is good enough still to say my farewells to you.

Just sucked that I never commented enough.

It's sad, but 10 years is quite a journey. Didn't think I'd stay that long. Thanks for reading all these years though, I'm sure you're one of my first bunch of loyal readers. It's sad to have to say goodbye to everyone but I feel it's really just time for me.

Thanks for reading :heart:

I’ve been a fan of your stories for a long time now and still am! Every since a read the Infection ( which is still my favorite collection of stories that you wrote) I’ve been a fan and always looked forward to what your next story was going to be. I think I can speak for everyone here on DA that reads your stories that we are going to miss you very much 😢
I hope you have a great life Janelle and I wish you and your family the best of luck 😁👍🏻

Personally I didn't really care for that series (I don't generally like my older work :lol:) but I'm certainly glad you enjoyed it, and still do!

Hard to believe that this day is finally here after reading your stories for so long. I'm incredibly sad to see you go, but I'm also so grateful for all the amazing stories you've written and shared with us over the years.

Thank you Janelle, for all that you have given us over the years. You were among the first writers I followed here on DA, and every one of your stories were an absolute joy to read. Beyond that, you always came across as friendly, giving, and fun in all of your interactions with the community. You truly are a bright, shining light in what can often be a dark and unforgiving internet...and I don't think it is a stretch to say that the expansion community will greatly miss you.

With all of that said, I wish you nothing but peace and happiness as you move on to the next stage of your life with Brad and your children. I have no doubt that you will continue to bring happiness and joy to all of those lucky enough to have you in their lives, just as you did for those in this community.

Take care Janelle, and again, thank you.

Okay, that made me tear up a bit. Thank you for all of that. It was very sweet, and it warms my heart to hear that I could have that effect on someone I've never met. I do plan to post a "goodbye" journal so I don't want to get too carried away here, but I feel all this time writing and interacting with people on here was worth it. I felt like I could bring some possible vibes in people's lives and I truly feel I was able to do that.

Thank you for reading! :tighthug:

Thank you Janelle. Although I have yet to post anything, you were the author that inspired me to start writing my own stories and someday I hope I can share them with the community just as you did. :)

You've been such a positive force in this community through both your writing and your interactions with fans like me. I'm going to miss being able to read your new stories, but I am so grateful for all that you've given us. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for everything. I wish you and your family nothing but happiness, joy, and success in all that you do.

It'll be left open but I don't know if I'll check. I may check for new stuff being posted from time to time but I don't know if I'll reply to stuff (I don't want to get anyone's hopes up or tempt myself into writing again) so I'm not sure.

Very true, and I understand.
Someday it’d be my time to go too, but that’s unfortunate to hear that you’re heading off! :(
