Happy New Year TSPeeps! Wow, that was quick. It didn’t fly by, but it certainly was swift!
And what a year it was! There were lots of ups, some downs, a couple good sister fights, such amazing food, tons of laughs and plenty of good times. I can say, all in all, 2017 was a damn good year. With 2018 upon us, we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite blog posts of 2017. Looking back at what I wrote on The Sister Project makes me happy. It makes me feel like I am doing something I want to be doing, something I should be doing. This little idea that we started in late 2014, has turned into a full blown obsession and passion. I literally think about it 24/7. How can I change it to make it better? What should I write more of, less of? How do I increase followers here, how do I increase followers there? What can I offer that’s different than other bloggers? Trust me, it never stops. Halp! But for real, all jokes aside, if I am going to be obsessed with something, I’m down with being obsessed with our blog. Plus, there’s something else. This opportunity we have created for ourselves has also given us a platform – a space to talk about our mom and dementia. When it comes to putting my feelings out in the open about our mom’s illness, even though those are the toughest posts to write, it helps me immensely. It’s my therapy. We know that there are so many other people out there going thru something similar, and we just want people to know that they’re not alone. Because the truth of the matter is, when it comes down to it, dementia is a f*cking lonely disease. That’s why we decided way back when, that June’s story is going to be part of The Sister Project’s story – to support others and to spread awareness. It is part of our mission.
As we welcome in the new year, we are welcoming upcoming changes to our blog. A facelift of sorts. That’s all we can say for now…but it’s all happening and I can’t freaking wait. 2018 is going to be the year of growth, laughing so hard I cry (that goes for every year) and for blogging my little boobies off. I am also looking forward to squashing goals like I have never squashed them before – both blog goals and personal goals. We love having you all along for the ride and look forward to building The Sister Project’s community in the new year.
We love you guys, we are beyond grateful for you all and we wish you a happy, healthy and wonderful new year ahead. Cheers to good vibes in 2018!!!!
See you in the New Year, until then, here’s my best of 2017….
Happy New Year! Peace and love. XOXO
