HAPPY 2016, GUYS!
2015 was crazy-amazing, even though some not-so-good stuff happened right at the very end of it (one big thing was that my laptop of less-than-six-months crashed, so I may or may not have lost a bunch of important files). I hope 2016 will be even better. I’m pumped about a whole bunch of things including (but not limited to): endless potential for fresh starts, looking forward to growing closer and closer to God + family + my friends, the $50 Amazon gift card Elisabeth and I were given (a gift from my awesome dad), getting my room organized for good and getting back to my writing, finally writing in my Jane Austen-themed five year diary, and basically EVERYTHING. 2016, I hope and pray that you’ll be awesome.
My entire family, even the little kids, stayed up until midnight last night. We ate donuts and drank coffee and tea and watched Meet The Robinsons and Dad counted down to the New Year and Elisabeth and I watched Combat! while we painted our nails. It was amazing.
And thennnnn we got up this morning and did some last minute gift-wrapping and ate a quick breakfast and then it was GIFT TIME. So. Much. Fun. I got lots of cool gifts: aforementioned $50 Amazon gift card (Elisabeth and I are already stewing over how we’ll spend it), a medic armband (a gift from Elisabeth – I’ve been begging her for one for ages), my Ox-Bow Incident movie still that I’ve had for a long time finally framed by Mom, a magnetic bookmark, and a bunch of other neat stuff. We all had a blast.
So, now I’m sitting at the dining room table, using Mom’s laptop (Hymie, I miss you) and sharing all of this with you, my super-duper followers. You’ve all been great during 2015 and I hope that this blog will continue to flourish (and grow) in the new year. Hugs and chocolate cake to all of you, because you totally deserve it. 🙂
Have a great year, everyone!
