HELLO 2020, GOODBYE 2019

Y’all we have made it to 2020 (plus three weeks since I’m super late). 2019 for me was a year of change and growth. God used this year to push me out of my comfort zone and actually make me to talk to people I did not know….which turned out for the best because now I have amazing friends but it was very scary at the times. #introvertproblems I was also blessed with another year with my terminally ill father. God truly did bless me throughout this whole year. Sure, I had my downs and a lot of them, but I now can see looking back how God used the bad times to not only grow me but it made me appreciate the good times all the more.

So since December and 2019 is past us, I am going to combine my December wrap up with a 2019 wrap up. I hope y’all enjoy!

Writing

In 2019, I finished my first draft of Dalkeith which was a HUGE accomplishment for me. I even started on the sequel so this series may actually have a change of becoming something. I will be sharing more about Dalkeith and the other books in the series later this year so be sure to keep your eyes open for those posts!!

Overall

2019 was a pretty good year, it was a much better year than 2018 lol. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for me and this blog in 2020. There will be a few minor changes coming soon, but I’ll talk more about that later in my January wrap up post that will be coming out on the 31st. I hope y’all had an amazing New Year and that 2020 has been treating you well so far!

How has your 2020 been so far? What kind of posts would you like to see me do in this new year?
