Post Christmas Post

In my last post I asked
“Does anyone blog anymore?”

Then I all but quit blogging.
Ha!

No, but really I stopped because well…

I got feedback.

Some good, some bad,

Some downright mean.

But what can you do?

That comes with the territory of this stuff.

I’m sharing life with you,
so I’m opening up myself to a bit of criticism
albeit how nonconstructive it is.

However, here is where we move on.

How was your holiday?

Ours was beautiful.

It was full of surprises.

This is our 5th year snapping a photo like this, it’s been incredible to see how much they grow from year to year.

And of course a bit of mischief 😉

  1. It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family. The food menu sounded great also! Don’t let anyone’s opinions get you down, and just enjoy that beautiful family, there are plenty of us that have nice things to say 🙂

  2. Your Christmas looked beautiful and what a delicious menu! I’m glad that you’ve come back to blogging. There will always be at least one person out there with something negative to say, and sometimes many more, we all have them but what is important is that you stay true to yourself no matter the negativity pushed at you – deflect it and do what makes YOU happy!

  3. If you love blogging then you should keep on no matter what. My immediate family still doesn’t get it. I used to get discouraged with the negativity but now I’m fine. I’ve been blogging for six months on my own and know eventually it will be something more.
