Blogmas 24: The End

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone. Is that the correct terminology? Is it Happy Christmas Eve and then Merry Christmas? Or is it Merry on all accounts? Merry Christmas Eve? Whatever, you get the gist of what I'm trying to say. Christmas is tomorrow and all is calm, all is bright.

So today's the last day of Blogmas. We made it guys. As promised, I write something every single day leading up to Christmas. I hope you all had fun and maybe learned a few things along the way. I definitely did. For one, I learned that I have really wonderful supportive people in my life who truly want the best for me. That's always a nice reminder, especially during this time of year. I also learned that blogging is a lot harder and more time consuming than people realize, especially when it's part of a daily routine. Serious props to professional bloggers who do this for a living.

In all seriousness though, I've loved Blogmas. Sure there have been days where I had no idea what to write and I felt like my creative energy was at an irreparable low. I did it though, and I'm proud of myself. If you stuck with me all month long, you should be proud of yourself too. We're a committed bunch. High five.

So now that Blogmas is over, you may be asking yourself what this means. Will I be taking a permanent break from blogging? Will I go on hiatus for fourteen weeks like a primetime TV show? Will I pull one last trick out my hat and drop in tomorrow? No. None of the above, guys. I won't be gone long, but I will be taking a bit of a breather. I'm only talking a few days though, so try not to miss me. I can guarantee that I'll be back within the first five days of 2015. Trust me, I love this blog too much to leave it alone for long. Now that me and this blog have been united by Blogmas, there's a severe sense of separation anxiety between us.

Well that's it, guys. It's been real. As I've said in the past, I appreciate you all so so much and your support means the world to me. You've made me feel heard and understood and brave and important, which is no small feat. I'll see you all again soon, and until then I'll leave you with my favorite Christmas song.
