Well, to say the least, I’ve decided to go full force into 2018 with setting and keeping some serious intentions. Last year (actually the last 5-ish years) have been a real doozy. Lots (and lots and lots) of ups and downs which have amounted to a great feeling of being lost, unmotivated, sometimes depressed, sometimes a huge lacking of self confidence and so forth. I’m sure I’ve mentioned all of that before. I really didn’t want this blog to just be a “vent” blog. Anyways, I’m extremely tired of living that way. I’m not sure, well actually I know, that all my days aren’t going to be up days like today while I write this, but if I can just manage to keep getting through the tough days or the not-so-great days, then the important thing is that I keep going – as long as I keep going.
I wanted to write a post about Christmas Gift ideas this year, but seeing how it’s already December, this may not be very useful. Unless, of course, you do a bunch of shopping online, like I do, and therefore, you still have things to shop for. Ideally, I wanted to feature some local shops to support, which could still be helpful if you have a similar place wherever you are located, maybe.
We have a somewhat large family so it was important to me to be very mindful of the people, things, and money we needed to spend/save. I decided to do some DIY projects and to do some more memory or action centered gifts for the kids. NOT JUST TOYS.
