Wow, what a year. A year so full of life with all it’s highs and lows. Would talking about it cheapen it?

I am real big on setting goals, but I don’t remember any of them for this past year, except to read a lot and keep on keeping on.  As many of you noticed, the website and blog had a facelift over the summer. A big thank you to my wonderful husband!

With the birth of our daughter last November, I took a hiatus from writing, but I didn’t completely step away as I continued editing when I could find the time. I also did a lot thinking about my literary pursuits and other creative endeavors. I’ve got some big plans for the New Year and can’t wait to see how it all unfolds. Is it too early to start talking about the New Year when Christmas has yet to arrive?

So how was your year?
