My goodness. It's been a while! For months my heart has longed for words here but I just didn't make the time. As we come to the end of 2016 (also known as the most awful year ever.) I realized I needed this space. Much has happened over the last few years. Beautiful things. Ugly things. A whole lot of messy. A whole lot of glorious hope.
In the end I needed to start putting my words out there again. So with a brand new look Critty Joy is ready to step into 2017! Did you know I started writing this blog in 2007? So 2017 will mark my 10th year. What better time to re-enter one of my favorite hobbies and enjoy all that it has to offer!
I will be participating in a few things to help me to keep coming to this space and to also share parts of me here...the fun stuff and the messy stuff on the days when I don't feel like writing.
I am going to participate in Modern Mrs. Darcy's reading challenge!
I also want to participate in Leigh Kramer's What I'm Into link up.
It's also time for me to chose my OneWord365 word for 2017. I've been pondering on it but don't have a solid one yet.
I am going to look into some other things to participate in around bloggy land. So if you know any good ones please let me know!
There will also be stories about my life... some fun such as my marriage and being a fur mom...and the not so fun stuff as I have decided to document about my struggle with anxiety and depression.
And lastly... I am feeling the creative bug again so I will be creating wallpapers and other digital art fun here! I am so excited to start creating...as you can tell I had fun with my new blog look. :)
How are you my friends? I have missed you so!
