It’s the last day of 2017, and maybe it should feel more special, but it kind of doesn’t. Besides the global, political, and cultural that everyone else with a soul endured, this year was just another year. Today does, however, mark the end of calendar-year-firsts since my mom died, so I guess that’s something.

I don’t really have any resolutions, but I’ve done some reflecting and some looking forward, I have some thoughts and ideas and I’m feeling cautiously optimistic, at least. I’m not good at typing out all my thoughts like many of my favorite bloggers do and have done. It’s something I would like to get better at, but I’m not there yet.

But I’m still here and hope to keep sharing.

And I just put on my sparkly party dress to spend the night at home, so bring it on, 2018!
