Happy New Year and Farewell

First and foremost, I truly want to thank those of you who have stuck around throughout the years following the blog. I may have started blogging as an outlet for myself, but you’re the ones who kept me going. The questions, the reaching out for advice, the sharing of your own personal stories; that eventually became the most important part of the blog for me. So again, thank you.

Next, happy new year, peeps! I’m starting the year with a bit of a hectic schedule but only through the first couple of months. I suspect by March/April timeframe, things will really start to slow down and I can get back to being incredibly selfish and putting myself first. Fortunately, the things I’ll be involved with for the beginning of the year truly bring out the best in me, so it’s definitely worth it. I hope you all find something to be passionate about in 2018. I hope you focus on the best you. I hope you dream big and make those dreams come true. I hope you find happiness like you’ve never known before. And with that happiness may you be confident, secure, and totally in love with yourself. May 2018 be the year of you!

Now, let’s get to the juicy stuff, shall we? I started the blog in 2005 while living abroad in Kuwait. Since then I’ve had 2 other women writing with me at different times. Guest writers and ghostwriters. Sometimes, it’s been just me. It’s outlined the details of friendships and relationships; the good, the bad, and the smelly. The blog has allowed me to meet some fantastic people from all over the world, job offers, blind dates, and even a stalker or two. But hey, in the big scheme of things, it’s been fun.

Take care, kind readers. Wishing you all the best in the year of you.
