happy new year and all that jazz

Happy Thanksgiving. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year! 

I think that counts most of the holidays that have passed since I last shared anything here. So why, might you ask, have I been so MIA lately? Well, for many reasons. Life has been running at full speed lately. The holidays were a mess of parties, travel, Christmas shopping, work commitments with really no downtime in between. Also, I've just honestly lost some of my urge to blog. I still enjoy reading other blogs and I do miss using my creative side to share content here. I do think it's good for me to have a little hobby outside of family and work time. I honestly haven't had much time for anything else. This weekend is my birthday and I'll get to see some friends that I haven't seen in SO long. I have been a terrible friend lately and it's really all my own fault.

One refreshing conversation I had over the holiday break was with Chris's cousin, Jami. She said she really missed my blogging and wondered why I didn't share anything anymore? I told her about how busy I was and my recent hesitancy to share personal things with the internet. Her response was so Jami and so perfect, 'f*ck those guys'. I laughed. She's right. It's worth it to me to take the time to share things and there are a few people that enjoy what I do also. 

Maybe that's my new 2018 manta? 

F*ck those guys.

Also, just exposing myself to less hate/incompetance/ugly stuff. I need to unfollow @realDonaldTrump on twitter. I've tried to stop reading hateful/ignorant news articles that are written merely to inflame and not to educate or inform. 

There are exciting things coming up in 2018. I have a few thrilling announcements coming up soon. So there are some things to look forward to around here. Also, I'm so thankful that everyone is healthy and doing well in my family. So all of the important boxes are checked.

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you've reflected a bit on 2017 and are ready to give 2018 the what for.
