It’s okay, you can say it: I’ve been a bad blogger. One might even suggest I’ve been terrible enough to warrant a spot on the dreaded Naughty List this year, despite all efforts to the contrary. But it’s the truth, and I’m sorry for it.
I can’t say that my excuses — many successive days of frantic overtime and bone-deep, all-consuming exhaustion — are any different or more worthy than another might have, but it’s the one I’m sticking to. We’re running a massive special event at the store these days, and it has stolen every last dreg of energy I once possessed.
If you read my last post, you might have anticipated my Twelve Gems of Christmas feature. Unfortunately at this point we’re well past the usefulness of that list, but I plan to go through some of my personal favorites in the future. It is my fervent belief that there are many lesser-known or undiscovered gems that are very much deserving of some attention, and I would love to be the one to offer an introduction to you.
I would like to wish each and every one of my readers a wonderful holiday season full of joy. May your days be merry and bright!
