Hi there, 2023.


I’ve been off work for ten days. I was just so full of zeal for all I was going to accomplish in my time off. I am every year. I am always just so sure that I can get our lives fully together in the last week of the year. (It hasn’t happened yet!)


Sometimes life has other plans, and you need rest more than crossing things off your to-do list. That has been the case this time. 

The last year was good, but the hard parts seemed to outweigh the light and fun. The year flew by, and I’m ready to try again this year. 

I’m so thankful for a new day, week, month, and year. I’m trying to be kind to myself and going into 2023 with a lot of hope and grace. 

One thing I want to do is write more for fun. So here I am, on January 1, dusting off my old blog again. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I don’t write because I feel like people won’t see it. Now, though, I see that I’ll just be missing out by not writing or creating just for me! With as fast as the last year passed, I don't have any time to waste.

I’m showing up. For me. And whoever else winds up here. Happy New Year! Let’s make 2023 something special. 

Love always,
Jessica
