Hello, 2016! I’ve already had a great start to 2016. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this last week has been. I am going over my reader survey (which you can still fill out here!) and I have to tell you guys that I love you all so much! I love reading your comments on the survey. I really got to a point in blogging where I didn’t think that people even enjoyed reading my posts and to find out that there are so many of you that have been sad that I haven’t been posting as much… it really made my day and gave me so much desire to get back into writing. So, I apologize for being MIA and I am really going to get back into it, I swear. PLUS I have exciting things going on in my life again (work, boyfriend, children that say the most amazing things, and of course Star Wars). I’ll be sure to keep my blog more up-to-date and I think now that I’m not in my depressive funk, I think it’ll be easier for me to write.
Let’s get started, shall we?
I love the beginning of the year because it means there are new planners out. I love and adore stationary and planners… so it makes me giddy. I recently picked up this beauty from Target and I’m currently making it mine.
The picture doesn’t do it justice – the light brown henna design is actually copper. It’s beautiful. I’m so in love with it.
Of course because it’s the new year, I also decided I need new pens (to add to my million other pens….) and got these:
Because, I love pens… and pencils. It goes along with my obsession of snail mail. I love writing. Is that a weird thing? Hmm…
The only downfall to the new year so far is that I have a cold sore. I used to get them when I was little, I think. I can’t remember but I haven’t had one …. in as long as I can remember. And my lip is huge and swollen and it’s seriously so unattractive. So, I’m trying this out to see if it’s as magical as it is claiming to be.
It’s supposed to get rid of the cold sore in a single dose. So, I’ll let you know if it really works… I have my doubts. It does feel better so far though, so maybe that’s a good sign? I don’t know. I’m actually just mortified that I have a cold sore. My mom said I used to get them all the time when I was little, whenever the weather would change. I just haven’t had one in about 20 years. (Wow, that makes me feel old saying that.) So, if you need me, I’ll be the one with the paper bag over my face until my hideous cold sore goes away.
What have you done so far this year? What is your favorite part of it being a new year? How many times have you written 2015 instead of 2016?? Let me know in the comments and join us for the link up!
