I’ve had this blog post in my drafts for about a week now. I had visions of starting the year strong with a carefully planned blog post schedule that I put together a month ago. All this talk about organizing time and “steps to success” made me want to strive to do blogging the “right” way.
I planned on doing a big New Year’s Day post and highlight some of the posts from last year, like:
The fun I had Painting My Mom’s Vintage Metal Cart,
and the month long series on Delicious Dinner Ideas (that ended up being a half month series!:)).
I was going to write about the fact that last year (2016) was pretty epic for us.
moving and transitioning,
learning and growing,
and having 3 different addresses and phone numbers in 8 months! (I still can’t remember my latest postal code…)
It was a year of scary unknowns.
And then, we watched in amazement as God carefully set out a path before us.
He gave my husband a new job – and found me a fun part time one at a jewellry store.
And, then, in a wild and crazy real estate market,
He gave us the gift of a place to call home.
Yep. 2016 was epic. I look back at it as one of the most difficult years of my life. But, I now see that it was the year that also ushered in a fresh, new chapter in our lives.
2017 really does feel like a clean slate for us:
A new town,
And for me, I’m starting out the year with a new adventure. (Woo Hoo!)
I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
It’s been what has kept me away from following my carefully crafted blog schedule plan.
It’s a pretty kind of new venture…
(And if you just can’t stand to wait to hear what I’m talking about, head on over to my Facebook page. I’ll be doing a Live video later to give you a sneak peek of some behind the scenes things that are going on around here.)
