This year on the blog I have focused on quality over quantity, which has been a joy. Due to the additional time and energy needed to settle my sweet sister’s estate, I needed to let go of the goal of weekly blog posts. I have to say, it was refreshing and restoring to write when I have something important to share versus keeping a brisk schedule of writing goals. Taking time to grieve, reflect, and rest has brought forth some very special content this year. As with most things, more is not necessarily better. Do you agree?
