This week has looked a lot like this, except my hair has been in a messy bun, I haven’t put on makeup and there’s dishes in the sink. It has been really nice to be (mostly) unplugged for a bit. I’m also pretty excited for 2019, but I can’t believe this year is almost over, does time go by faster as you get older or is that just me? It feels like yesterday I was sitting down to write my goals for 2018. I went back to that post recently when I started writing mine for the New Year, it’s interesting to see what was important to me then vs now, more on that next week. I’m excited for my cousin’s wedding on NYE, and interested to see how I do staying up until midnight, haha. Whatever your plans, I hope you get a chance to rest and recharge before 2019. Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year, being a part of this community we’ve created is hands down the best part of my job, thanks for making 2018 great.
