Ah! Happy December 1st! Only 31 days of 2017 left? Crazy and surreal, that's all I can say. I'll have to reflect on 2017, but right now I'm just waiting for it to end (and fast!). Good news, the Fall semester is almost over! I have "about" 2 weeks left; only filled with sporadic final dates, so I'm done with "traditional" class work. That is a breath of fresh air! There will be some major rest and rejuvenation during winter break before I have another packed semester ahead!
Another thing I've been toying around with is ending the Friday Finisher series in 2018. I love sharing all the posts I find, skim, read, and think would be beneficial, but I don't feel these posts are conducive to the Strength and Sunshine brand or audience anymore. I'm not producing content for other bloggers (who I think are the majority of people who read these posts) and it also kills Friday for posting anything else (perhaps a third recipe). Not sure...I'll put it in a poll in an end-of-year survey!
