goodbye until 2016!

What a year it’s been… 2015 was such a doozy, but a good one, too. I had a lot of personal growth and change, worked on SO many amazing projects, and finally moved back to Seattle, my real-true home. I couldn’t have made all of these things happen without my amazing contributors, my darling friends, and YOU, my awesome readers. So, first a great big THANK YOU for reading along, commenting, sharing, encouraging… everything. I cannot thank you enough for following my journey and also being part of it.

Second, I have some news… I’ve never done this before, but I’m taking some time off! This is my last post of the year. Crazy, huh? I’ll be back on January 4, 2016 (it’s really weird to write that) with lots of fresh, new ideas and inspiration to share with you guys. I’m so excited to actually take a break and get some perspective on where I want to take this blog in the new year. Believe me, I’ve got some really awesome stuff in the works already and cannot wait to share it with you. Until then, I hope you have a magical Christmas and a very happy new year!

And, in case you missed them… I wanted to share a few of my favorite posts from 2015:

I’ll still be posting my adventures on instagram and snapchat (username jojotastic), so be sure to follow along there. See you in 2016, friends!
