About Moxie Girl Musings

Moxie Girl Musings is about starting over from square one after tragedy impacted my young family. It's filled with stories of triumph, struggle, snafus, hopes, and dreams. Sometimes there will be features from other writers that I like and every so often I'll include an original short story, but normally I simply write what's on my mind at the time. Welcome to my unfiltered true-life story as I figure out this thing called life. http://www.amberleaeaston.com

A Grateful Goodbye


I started this blog in 2009. At the time, I didn't know what the hell I was doing in any aspect of my life. I took the concept of winging it and made it a lifestyle. I felt lonely, afraid, and beaten. I had nearly given up on writing when a friend pushed me to start a blog. I didn't really want to, didn't know if I had anything to say. I simply wrote from the heart about being a young widow with two small kids, about raising children without a partner, about sticking my foot into the dating world only to quickly yank it back it again, and so many other things. The response was welcoming. In fact, because of the love of strangers, my confidence grew. I published not one but close to thirty books since then--and I firmly believe this blog is what helped me do that.

But now my life is different. I don't want to open my heart in that way any longer because it doesn't serve me to do so. Whatever demons I once had have been exiled to the ether. I have three author names now--Amber Lea Easton, Dakota Skye, and Cassidy Springfield. They are now my main focus. Because of that success, I need to shutter some of my personal life so that it belongs only to me. Perhaps the creativity of my writing is spurred on by the very pain and life experiences that once fueled this blog. Sure, I'll still be vulnerable on my Kisses, Caresses, Whispers in the Night blog, but the time for Moxie Girl Musings to retire has come.

If you're into Instagram, just look me up as amberleaeaston. And, if you don't, that's okay, too. I appreciate all the time you've given me in the past and wish you well.

I want to express my gratitude for all of you who have remained on this journey with me all of this time. We have shared tears and triumphs. I am eternally grateful. I wish you all green lights and happily ever afters.

Peace to you.
