Well hello there! As I’m sure it is for many people this time of year- things have been pretty crazy here on my end! Between work, holiday gatherings, gift shopping/wrapping and getting ready for Christmas and the New Year- I have been going, going, going! And while I’ve never minded keeping busy- especially around the holidays- I’ve unfortunately caught a nasty little cold/flu that has been wreaking havoc here in the Northeast as of late. This is legitimately the first sickness I’ve come down with that has knocked me off of my feet since well before 2020- so it was a good streak while it lasted!
I’ve been getting plenty of rest, drinking plenty of fluids and reluctantly choking down medicine every few hours over the past couple of days- and have gradually been feeling better- but I’ve decided to take the remainder of the week off from blogging and other side projects that I have going on (and am committed to working from home at my full-time job in order to prevent anyone else at my office from getting sick) so that I can fully recuperate.
Not only that, but my dear friend Troy has recently arrived in town and will be staying with me through the holidays- and although I’ve protested his taking time out of his vacation to take care of me while I recover- he’s acting as my Doctor/caretaker until I’m back to feeling 100% and am on my feet again. Bless his heart.
But I’m a bit (see: a lot) of a workaholic- so I’ll be back to blogging full-time next week! I’ve got a few more festive posts to share before Christmas Eve/Day, and then it’s time for a lot of reflective look backs on 2022 as we get closer and closer to the New Year!
Thank you all for your patience while I’m on the mend- and I’ll see you all in a few days!

I’m like you in that I don’t get sick often, but when I do, I just become this inert pile of sadness. Get well soon, Ashley, and yes, a break would do you much good!
