2016 has arrived! There's always a lot of excitement surrounding the start of a new year - everything seems possible on JANUARY first. My year started with a four day break from work. I spent all four days at home in my pajamas with the exception of one hour at church on Sunday morning. I saw a great tweet on Saturday night that said, "I'm running out of clean pajamas" and I was like, wait, we're supposed to put on clean ones? It was great to have four straight days at home.
2015 was a GREAT year. My daughter got married in September and I spent much of the summer working on craft projects for the wedding, which is why the blog went QUIET around that time. You know it's been a long time since you've blogged when you can't remember your blog password!
There are really two reasons why I haven't blogged in months. The first reason is because I was too busy getting ready for the wedding. It was a beautiful day and an awesome wedding and I'll share some of the photos here soon. But, it was very time consuming and didn't leave time for much else (besides my real job).
The second reason is that I really didn't have anything to share. I didn't want to share any of the wedding crafts I was making (I didn't want all of the guests to see them ahead of time) and I didn't want to post just for the sake of posting.
Having interesting content is always a challenge, so I've spent a lot of time thinking about whether or not I want to continue blogging (yes!) and if so, what I'd like to share. The above photo basically sums up my interests right now and what I plan to blog about in 2016: planning, crafting, and organizing. I'll probably throw in some storytelling too, since those tend to be popular posts and fun for me to write.
My plan right now is to post two to three times a week. I don't have a solid schedule figured out yet, but when I do I'll share it with you. If there's a topic or type of post you have enjoyed here in the past feel free to leave a comment and I'll try to work it in.
Here's to a GREAT 2016! Let's do this!
