December was a great way to end the year. 😉 With family, friends, the end of school (yaaaay!!!), and the pinnacle celebration of the entire year, it might be my favorite month. ❤
This past month’s full plate was stacked high with, um… Christmas candy. Gulp. 😀
Here’s a quick update on what I did last month. 😉
Stronger for Language (short story, five stars)
Aurora (short story, four stars)
The Father Christmas Confessions (five stars)
The Candle in the Window (four stars)
Together (five stars)
The 12 Cats of Christmas (short story, four stars)
Heartless (four stars)
Twisted Dreams (short story, three stars)
Emails! I’m still catching up after finals, but I got a few replied to! 😉
Santa Claus’s remains (don’t ask)
Bubble wrap (for a gag gift)
How to bind a quilt
Rising Gael band
If white chocolate is caffeinated (it’s not! 😉 )
Peppermint bark recipe
“Lanterns”, my final short story in my creative writing class!
My final English paper (and a presentation to go with!)
A quirky Christmas card 😀
1,724 words on “Legend”!
My first newsletter!
Goals (index cards are my friends)
School papers (extra stressful #becausefinals)
Celebrated Advent ❤
Survived finals O.o.
Had ice cream to celebrate surviving finals 😉
Ran a super fun giveaway
Finished that baby quilt!! 😉
Attended a church Christmas recital
Celebrated two family birthdays
I also went to a ladies’ tea hosted by my church, watched a livestream of the world’s best Christmas concert with my sister and her family, wrapped presents, made Christmas cookies and cards, and watched all my favorite Christmas movies. ❤ (And “A Christmas Prince”. Twice. And I loved it.) Christmas Day itself was such a special day full of family togetherness and celebration of Christ! New Year’s Eve was also a ton of fun with silly jokes, snacks, and a puzzle. 😉
This next month, I’m looking forward to school starting again (online this time), finishing the first draft of “Legend” (so close!), interviewing a fantastic author, celebrating a handful of family birthdays, attending a conference my church is hosting, and hopefully getting to edit “Kiera” some more. (We’ll see how the projects shake out.) 😉 And who knows, maybe there’ll be some surprise happenings God wants to throw in! 😀
How was your December? What are you looking forward to this month?
