It's time for another weekly celebration with Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. Thanks as always to Vikki for hosting this hop!
First off, I'm celebrating that I had a truly wonderful Christmas this week filled with lots of laughter and fun with some of the people I love most in this world. What else can you ask for, right? I hope that all of you who celebrate Christmas also had a fantastic holiday.
Vikki suggested that for this last hop of 2013 we look back and celebrate the whole year, and I thought that was a great idea.
To me, 2013 will always be about the two books I had published! If someone had told me a few years back that by the end of December, 2013 I would have two books out in the world I would have asked them what kind of drugs they were taking. It just goes to show you never really know what can happen when you take a chance and try a new path.
Which leads me to the start of that path, this blog. December 31 will be my third anniversary of blogging and I can honestly say that taking that step that day in 2010 has been one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. When looking back at 2013 it's a thrill to realize that I've made tons of new friends out here in blog land (while still cherishing the old ones) in spite of the fact that I've been at this now for three years.
So I'm celebrating this amazing community that I am so proud and grateful to be part of and that has enriched my life in ways I never could have imagined back in 2010 when I hit "publish" for the first time.
Thanks to all of you and I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Here's to a wonderful 2014 for all of us.
