1. First and foremost, I want to thank you guys for the kindness and good thoughts you extended my way on my last post. It probably shouldn't, but the heart and support and just all around awesomeness of this community continues to amaze me. Again from the bottom of my heart to the farthest reaches of my soul, thank you, thank you, thank you.
  2. While I've dipped my toe into the world of social media a few times (mostly over on Twitter) over the last week or so, I don't think I'm quite ready to completely dive back into it yet.
  3. I mean I miss you guys and the heart, humor, facts, and absurdity you were bringing into my day, but I've also still got a few things I need/want to work out before I add that piece back into my life on a regular basis.
    I promise it's not y'all, but a total me thing that's getting better but still requires a touch more of work.
  4. That said, I've got a few Christmas/holiday-themed lists that I wrote before I decided to take my break.
  5. I know I don't *have* to post them, but if I don't then they- and the thought that went into creating them- will go to waste.
  6. And truthfully that would kind of bum me out.
  7. Soooo I've decided to take a break from my break in order to post them.
  8. What I haven't decided yet is if I'm going to post them all today (don't worry, there are only, like, four of them) or if I'll spread them out over a few days, but I do know for certain that I want to move them out of my drafts folder.
  9. Yes, I realize there's no real point to this list, but I wrote it because I do what I want....
  10. ...while also hoping I don't annoy people. =)
  11. So hi (*waves*) for a little while at least.
  12. P.S. I feel I must confess that I never quit using my Instagram, but that's mostly because of my phone's constant whining that it's almost out of storage due to all the pictures I take.
