It’s Christmas eve and I have no clue where December has gone… this will be my 12th and final day of the 12 Days of Blogmas and it breezed by in the blink of an eye. It’s no doubt that Christmas is my favourite time of the year, its a time where I’m happy and allowed me to completely believe in something from when I was little even up to now (slightly different beliefs though haha). Even now the magic of Christmas is still around and the excitement I felt when I was younger is still here, while other things going on may not be so jolly, but hey-ho thats life.
Abbi, my 5 year-old puppy, is like a little kid ripping apart her presents, which I may have gone a bit over board on this year. I just love how excited she gets, she runs around like mad and wants to jump on all of us to show us her new toys. It really is like seeing how excited I was when I was little all over again. I couldn’t resist dressing her up in a cute little christmas costume and taking some photos to share with you all which I did for Blogmas 2016 as well. I stepped it up this year and added a festive collar to the antlers and have the most beautiful photos of her captured forever. She’s a crazy little angel and I can’t wait to give her all the toys tomorrow morning!!
I am so thankful for what blogmas has done for me this year. It may not seem like much to most of you but for the past year I’ve been in a rut not just in regards to blogging but a full-blown life rut and blogmas has given me a bit of my spark back. I feel like while I may still struggle with finding energy to do a lot of things blogging has become what I love again. It doesn’t make me feel weighed down by not being good enough, it actually makes me feel like I can put my energy into something positive and see a physical thing I’ve created which brings me so much joy.
I spent a good few days worth of time dedicated to taking photos I was proud of and writing about things I wanted to write about. I think in reality while being mostly absent from my blog this year has taken its toll on the numbers side of it all (which I really don’t care about anymore) it was for the better and I can spend more time creating content I’m truly proud of and keep chatting with you lovely bunch who are so special to me I can’t even describe.
I hope the past 24 days have been full of joy and excitement for you and if they weren’t then I’m sending you all my love for the new year. Christmas is a time for giving but given doesn’t necessarily mean gifts, not to say people don’t want a little something tucked into their stocking, but just being there for someone or spending some time with people you love can mean more to them than you could ever imagine.
I also want to thank each and every one of you, my blog is something that has done more for me than I ever thought possible. Throughout the past few years I’ve gone through ups and downs but I always knew that I still had my blog there waiting for me to start typing away on and even though I may have neglected it a bit the comfort of having something that I have created myself there has been a lifesaver.
I love you all and wish you the happiest Christmas and a holiday full of relaxation and joy. Thank you again.
All the love.
