Has it really been over 7 months since I last posted?!
I have no excuses - I let life take over and didn't pay attention to getting posts created and posted. It's been a hectic year; a year of many changes personally and professionally.
In addition to the writing happening here, I invested in a franchise for creators (more to follow soon!), started a new job about a month and a half ago, and have started living the daily changes that my divorce earlier this year wrought. With all of that in mind, I decided it was time to take back my time and start getting back to the creative process that makes me so incredibly happy!
For the first time in many years, I have put a Christmas tree up in my living room. Until last year when I went home to take care of my mom during December, I had traveled with my family during the Christmas holidays.
This year being the first one of being divorced and without my mom, I thought about not doing anything. But then I remembered how happy putting up a tree made my kids long ago. So decided to try something new.
My new partner had an extra tree at home, so we re-homed the white tree to my house. My youngest helped decorate it and I'm very pleased with how it turned out! Its a bit of a departure for me (when we did decorate a tree, it was all Hallmark and handmade ornaments) but it matches the aesthetic of the house and it turned out beautifully!
