Merry Christmas!


Hello, dear readers!

I just want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you’ll enjoy your time with your family and friends. For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, I wish you, and yours  a Happy Holidays!

It’s been such a great year. 2015 is the year that I can truly say the most fun I’ve had on the blog. I figured out what I needed to do to make it less of a job and more of a really fulfilling hobby. I realize that I need not sweat the small stuff and not care too much about popularity and numbers. I created less pressure for myself and figured out the importance of reciprocating. I appreciate every single one of you, my loyal readers.

I’ll be back in the New Year armed with positivity and hope that I can do better.

Happy reading, and I love you all!


  • Yesss I have been where you are Joy, and treating it like an obligation or something you have to do definitely takes the fun out of it. Good luck with your goals in 2016! I’ll be right there with you!

  • Gosh, you living room and Christmas tree look so chic! Can you come over to my place and give it a makeover? I call it “cozy” when talking to family and friends, but here I will admit, it’s just a “mess”. Hope your holidays were swell, Joy 🙂

    Joy, have I lost my mind? I could have sworn I saw a new Hoarder’s Post a little while ago, but it mysteriously disappeared! Hope all is well and Happy New Year, girl! Hugs…RO

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts and getting to know you this year. I think the concerns you outlined get to us all at some point, and yeah, we need to remember that this is a hobby, not a job, and that the numbers don’t matter!

    Best wishes <3

  • I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Joy! And I hope the next year is a fabulous one for you! <3
