Hi, I'm LJ. Remember me?
It's become something of a ritual for me to take a few days off towards the end of the year, but this year was a little bit different. I took a monthlong break from my blog, went where cell phone reception was poor, and deleted my email apps for a week.
I had a lot to celebrate. 2016 was my most successful year in business, not by "luck", but through really, really hard work. It was my happiest year in love, and the year I *truly* moved to the city of Detroit. I'm so lucky to have a partner who admires me for my work ethic, but also reminds me to calm it down. He surprised me with my first vacation (ever) and I couldn't be more grateful. And now, after a deep cleaning of my apartment, a couple of lazy Sundays, and a quick trip to Canada (above), I'm ready to take on the New Year. More to come. ✨
