happy new year!

ROC 2016

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a healthy and happy new year! 2015 was – intense. Looking forward to a much more relaxed 2016. This weekend I plan on updating my website (LONG OVERDUE) and working on a few posts I’ve had on the back burner for most of 2015 – ha!

I’m ringing in 2016 in my pjs with my kitties. My relaxing 2016 is off to a great start!

HAPPY 2013

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it is already 2013. I’m planning on graduating this May. CRAZY.

I had a great time ringing in the new year with family last night/this morning. So much fun in fact, I didn’t take a single photo!* We played dice and darts and there was plenty of good food and drinks. LOTS of laughing. It was perfect.

I’m putting together a “recap of 2012” post (kind of like I did last year for 2011) and it will be up by the end of the week. I’m still in the ADKs for an extended holiday break and have been enjoying my down time. I needed it!

How did you ring in the new year? I wish you a happy and healthy 2013!


*more on the lack of photos coming up in another post!
photo above was taken earlier this evening. dusk is my favorite time of day.

new year, new blog!

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season and cheers to 2012!! I am so excited for the new year, I just hope I can take it a little slower. 2011 went by way too fast.

So, here we are. New year and new blog! What do you think? I decided to start the new year off hosting my own blog again. If you’ve been following my blogs for the last few years you’ll know that I kind of accidentally deleted my blog back in 2009. I went back to wordpress.com and have been happily blogging since. 2011 was my best blogging year yet and 2012 is already promising to be a stellar year! So, I’m taking control of my blog again and allowing myself to have more design control by hosting it myself. Now, fingers crossed, I can keep this one in tact! Joking, I’m totally not going to delete this one. Ha! Anyways, I’m still in the progress of working out some bugs, so if you see anything funny please don’t hesitate to let me know.

I hope those of you who were subscribed to my old blog will update your e-mail subscriptions and RSS feed subscriptions to this new blog of mine! You can do so to the right. Thank you for following me over here! I LOVE my new space!
