I Hope You Had A Merry Little Christmas

  Long time no see!  I accidentally forgot to write, and then I felt like I shouldn't start writing again until I have "inspiration" and all that.  I still don't feel ready to start blogging again, yet.  But I figured you needed to hear from me anyway.

   (I post on Instagram almost everyday: my tag is @livingjoyfullyblog)

 I'm still here.  I had a quiet Christmas, and I can't believe that 2016 is this week.  It blows my mind just thinking about it.  But January is good because January is fresh starts, new beginnings, and a whole 'nother chance to make things right.  Plus, my birthday.

   I hope to go ice skating, for the first time, tomorrow.  My grandparents are here and we are working on replacing our floor, so there is a hole in our kitchen through which you can see dirt.  I said a part for our church's Christmas Eve service and only messed up once.  I got sick and have ate way too much sugar.

   I really don't have anything to say, and I can't promise that this is the start of blogging consistantly.  So if I'm not back before New Years:

Live your life.  
Every second, every minute, every hour, day, year is a chance to start over.
The things that seem so big now will, good or bad, be so far away by the time we are old.
Say what you need to say, apologize to those you hurt, 
and sometimes just drop everything and go on an adventure.

Goodbye, 2015.  
You were wonderful, you were exciting, you were rough, you were downright terrible, and you went by in the time of a month. I loved you, but I am so glad I don't have to struggle to write "5" without it looking goofy every time I write the date. 
 See you memory,

Have a wonderful rest of 2015, everyone.



  1. Happy Holidays Jessica! And I loved this post! :)

  2. Ohh, ice skating, how fun!!! I hope you have an awesome time!
    Have a wonderful last three days of 2015!!

  3. Just gotta tell ya... I struggle with writing 5's too. They're the hardest numeral to write! So I too was excited that 2016 would come and I get to write fun, un-weird-looking 6's. :P
