A few good things

Well, hello!

 Amelie's first pigtails!

After unintentionally taking the last five months off blogging, it feels good to be here and doing this. Like all pursuits that don't directly further one's career, it sometimes needs to go on the back burner, but no matter how many times I think I should shut this blog down I always come back and it always makes me happy. Something good to remember.

I hope everyone's 2018 is off to a lovely start. Did you make any resolutions? I've got a few goals – quite a few actually, but mostly rather small things that added up, should make my life exponentially better. I've themed the year 'no compromises' and so far it feels really good.
