I find it completely believable that I have not posted since April. It’s been quite a year. I’m proud of how I’ve handled remote working with distance learning with keeping us healthy and (relatively) sane. I’m proud of our family’s flexibility and adaptability as the hits kept coming.

I desire weeklong road tripping. I yearn for live music events where I can sit in the sunny grass and not be overtly concerned about personal space. I hunger for sitting ina restaurant booth once more on a busy weekend morning.

But those can wait. I can keep going and await their return.

I look to 2021 with optimism and hope. I have spent much of today goal setting and content planning. It’s one of my favorite things to do honestly. Look forward and plot out new adventures both professionally and privately.

I am striving to be realistic with my goals as flexibility continues to be required. But I know this will be one of my biggest New Year Eve celebrations even if it’s a party of two – myself and my son. I will eagerly await the countdown that flips us into a new year and out of 2020.

She had her blessings, she had her rough spots. 2020 will be a year I remember both fondly and sadly. But I will live any pain and fear in this year and await the new dawn.

There’s my little nugget of sharing for this Monday. I hope you have a great week and a very happy New Year!


Wishing you much love and light,
