2015


Not a single post in December.  Hardly any photos taken.  No personal journal notes.  Barely any time spent on Facebook and Instagram.  I spent a month almost entirely unplugged.

It was kind of nice.  And it was also sort of weird.  After falling off the face of the earth, I'm ready to re-engage.

This past year literally flew by.  December was a busy month of getting ready for Christmas.  There was shopping.  Hockey and homework.  Baking and wrapping.

Adjusting to being newly unemployed.  Not so bad.

The continuing challenges of having a new puppy in the house.

It was a green Christmas, thanks to some wild warm temperatures for this time of year.  We didn't get our first real snowstorm until the 28th of December.  It's snowing today, so maybe winter is finally here.

I have half a dozen recipe posts waiting to be finished.  And I'm ready to see the world through my camera again.

Happy New Year!

    Sometimes being unplugged lets you get
    other things done. Have a great day!

  5. I've never really unplugged. I may do it for a week or so next month when I go to Florida. I can't wait.
    I'm also happy to be here and seeing people coming back from breaks.
    Happy New Year!

  12. I was not around much either.. having 3 kids home all day for 2 weeks was not conducive to blogging. AT all!! Thankfully I had some posts in draft that I just finished and then scheduled to publish. But, it was more fun to be present with them and have many adventures. Even without the snow. What are we going to write about, if we don't go out and live life too? :)

  14. Okay, I just realized I commented about your chocolate chip graphic, which was in your most recent post. Just in case you were wondering what the heck I was talking about.

  16. Happy New Year! I think it's great you spent most of December unplugged. I cut my posts down quite a bit too and really enjoyed it.

  17. Gorgeous photos! Sometimes it's great just to take a step back from being online for a bit. Here's to a fab 2016! :) #pocolo

  18. I love the look of your blog and I'm now subscribed! I love stumbling upon new blogs. I spent the last few months of 2015 being pretty much unplugged (for reasons that I will blog about very soon) but I missed it too. It's good to dis-engage though, gives you the thirst again. I may well read a couple of those books too :) #pocolo

  19. 48 books?! WOW...I wish that were me. Sadly I don't think I read all of 2 books last year. This year will be different! :)

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  21. Hi Jenn, it is nice to unplug from the online world every now and again. It gives us a chance to recharge our batteries. I hope the new puppy settles down soon and that 2016 is a fab year for you.

  22. OH man I wish I read that many books. I started a lot of books that I'm still reading and loving all of them but it's also making me a little ADD as you can maybe tell from this run-on sentence. Welcome back to the party and Happy New year! #SaucySAturdays
