The Hit List - 2023 is ending and I'm on a holiday break

2023 is almost over. WHEW. Just a few weeks until the glittery ball drops in Times Square. But I’ll be far from there. Instead, I’ll be hunkered down with my loved ones and all the books.

I started taking lots of time off in December about two years ago. It’s been one of the best decisions I have ever made. This time is for rest, writing, reading, tidying up loose business ends, and baking…or nothing at all. So the blog will be quieter. Same with my social media channels. I have a few things to publish, but it’s minimal all the way.

So, here’s to the end of the year, a delicious holiday break and silent nights. Sending you all my love for a wonderful wintery season.
