Happy 2024, friends!
Gosh, is it just me, or is it hard to believe that it’s already 2024?!
I know that sounds cliche but it’s true, haha.
Overall, 2023 was a bumpy ride for me. There were some ups but there were also definitely some low downs.
But I swear it just flew by! 😅
For the most part, I feel like I’m in a better place now than I was at this time in 2022. So progress is progress and I can’t complain!
I’m pretty optimistic about 2024 too. <3
I’ve been so happy to be working on my blog, crochet, and other creative work again. I know I was MIA for part of this year but I’m not going to let this blog become another “chore” on my to-do list again. I’m not going to let it negatively impact my mental health; I started it to HELP my mental health again, after all.
I just need to keep in mind that “done is better than perfect.” 💖
But enough rambling, haha!
