out with the OLD: 2016

This was the best month of they entire year, this was the month I got to go to Chicago and meet my bloggy friends! It was like we have known each other for YEARS! It was so wonderful to meet everyone in person and I had such a great time. I was able to meet Berls, Stormi, Lexxie, Brandee, Felicia, Kristin, Kristen, Kim and Nicole. (I might have missed someone). It was so awesome to finally meet Berls after chatting on the phone and text for so long. It was a great trip and I hope to see them all again soon.

I SUCK as a blogging friend! I really, really do. The slump took over my entire life and I wasn’t able to visit as much as I wanted. I have plans for the new year and even made it a bookish resolutions because I want to be more social with my blogging friends! I love them all and appreciate having them in my life….so….

I plan to do the comment/comment back. I know it will be a slow start in the beginning until I get a routine down but I love my blogging friends and I would rather spend 2 hours on a blog than on FB. So I plan to start doing the comment/comment back. However, I am a blog stalker so I will be visiting blogs as well not just to comment back. When I visit a blog I look through all the posts and pick ones I want to comment on and share ones that I think are great and want to share. Not that all your posts aren’t great, I just will pick one or two to share. 🙂 I am making a promise not to suck as a friend in 2017! 🙂 <3 I also plan to spend more time on Twitter but you will still find me on FB and Instagram. I also think I am going to try out Bloglovin or something similar to help keep up with all my favorite blogs. I can never seem to find one that works for me.

My Favorite Book this month:

This book had some of the most amazing characters. A GREAT story and surprisingly funny and intense. I really enjoyed this book. I have an obsession with Jack and have read his story quite a few times so I am not a fan of people changing the story but good gravy she did it and I loved it.


What are you looking forward to in 2017?
