The End of Another Year

I wanted to share this wonderful gift I received from my son for Christmas It's a great personalized sign with my blog's name and then overlaid (a bit hard to see) is the phrase: the world was hers for the reading. And yes it does say For My Brilliant Mother. Not sure I 100% agree with that, but I love the thought!

December 31st inevitably bring up resolutions. I've got a few personal things I want to address in the coming year, but also one for the blog...., I've been feeling pressed for time with everything that's been going on in my life lately. I've been posting (mostly) six days a week for the last couple of years. I think it's time to scale back at least one I'll be moving a couple of regular features to different days. They're so much fun to write and you've let me know how much you enjoy them. So....Over the Counter will move from Thursday to Wednesday and You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover will move from Saturday to Friday. And I'm going to give myself permission to not post if life is just too busy..

I also want to say how much I appreciate my followers and readers. 
Thank you for reading and for your comments. 

I wish you and your loved ones all the best for 2016. 
Here's to your next great read!

First of all, your sign is just beautiful. What a thoughtful gift!! I know you love it.

Secondly, absolutely make changes and scale back or whatever. Your blog is one of my favorites and I'll read whatever and whenever you decide to share.

Happy New Year, Luanne! Let's have a great 2016!

I love the sign! I scaled back from 7 to 5 days a while ago - blogging is a lot of work! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. What a wonderful gift you can cherish forever. Yes to scaling back as much as necessary. Here's to all of us remembering in 2016 that it's okay not to do everything.
