Happy New Year!

I blinked and another year has gone by.

I was fortunate to be able to spend my year with family and friends through the good times and the bad and hope everyone else was as fortunate and will be in the coming year!

I love New Years as it really gives me a time to sit down and think about what I want to accomplish in the coming year and this year that means more posts and more reading books. I spent most of 2015 reading magazines and stuff on the internet but want to change that in the coming year. Books are better for the brain.

I urge everyone to try and pick up this New Year's resolution as there are tons of benefits to reading actual books in our media over-saturated world where thousands of things vie for your attention every minute. Reading books relieves stress, help with depression and anxiety, and can make you happier in general. Although, I'll never give up reading blogs, I have to get more books in this year. :)  

I'm going to keep this post short but, as always, I am thankful for my friends and readers and all the joy that blogging has brought me in the last year and can't wait to see what it will bring us in the new year. If you have a resolution this year, I'd love to hear it in the comments!

1850s Shortbread Recipe for New Years.


  1. Visit more historic sites. I live near 4 that i've never even gone to.

    1. Believe it or not I live by as many that I haven't been to either. It seems further away ones seem more special somehow. I should try to get to them.

  2. I really want to make more of an effort to bring colonial reenacting back. I know - what can one person do, right? But I have others who are showing an interest and if I can build on that, well, maybe something very cool can come from it!

    1. I know you can do it! :) I know WWII is the big one right now but I'm just as intrigued by colonial times as ever!


Tell me what you think!
