I feel like every year I'm caught completely off guard by the new year. 2016? Whatever do you mean? It was just Thanksgiving like two days ago. It can't be, you're wrong.
I haven't sat down and made any long lists of things to do this year. That's not because I don't have a million things I want to do in the new year swimming around this crazy brain of mine. I do. Dozens and dozens of things. But I've decided to focus more on big picture this year.
Instead of trying to control every little thing, and plan myself to death (although, there will still be plenty of list making and planning, don't you get me wrong), I want to step back and be more open to new things. New ideas, new plans, new places. Taking things one step at a time.
If there's one thing I think I'm finally coming to grips with from 2015, it's that things don't always work out exactly how you thought they would, but that's sometimes great. And it may be cliche, but never say never. Like, seriously Josie, stop it. Stop saying never, because you're totally jinxing yourself.

Summer is already F L Y I N G by. I just want to hold onto it for dear life. We are working on the house in full force, trying to get as much done this summer as we can. Peronsonally, I'm looking to make some big changes too, and my head seems to constantly be swimming with thoughts about them.
You may have noticed I took a little hiatus from blogging after I went on vacation. I was feeling overwhelmed by a lot of different things, and honestly, just not myself. I also was testing to see if I do want to continue blogging. I lost a lot of my audience after my domain problems, and it seems a lot of bloggers are quitting these days too. Then, I laid in bed the other night and realized I missed it. I miss it pushing me to try new things and stay creative. I miss how my blog has helped to teach me new things and improve old.
So, I will be back. Soon.
