Hello, 2022! New Year, New Life ðŸ’•

May this year be a kinder one to us all. Happy new year! 💞

Hi, friends! 🥰 Whoops, it’s been a while! I’ll get to that in a bit 😅 But first of all, happy new year! 💖 There are, of course, plenty other turn-of-the-years to celebrate in the coming months, but January has always been one my family and I have celebrated constantly. How did your celebrations go? Any resolutions and goals, or is that no longer a thing these days? 😂

I know our last real chat was all the way back in November, before I poofed for NaNo, and then I fell off that one, too, as preparations ramped up for my… well, see above. I got married! 👰 I’ve been meaning to talk a little bit more about that, instead of just crashing back in here with the news, but in mid-December a typhoon ravaged my country and left a lot of damage, to the point that, up to this day, we still don’t have electricity, and internet is only available intermittently through mobile or in the office. Yeah, major yikes. I had no plan of returning 100% to work, yet here I am, because I can’t do anything otherwise, and, for those of you who are familiar with the work accountants do, the start of a new year means the end of the old, hence all the paperwork and closing of the books. Sleepless nights, anxieties up the roof, and all that jazz 😵

But things are still good! 😊 We’re safe and well despite everything, and the wedding pushed through even with all the hiccups and challenges. (More on that in another post, because man, weddings. 🤣)

How are you all? What have I missed? 💖

  2. I am so sorry about all the damage the storm caused your family and your country. Thank God you and your loved ones are well.

    End-of-year for accountants is hectic. I’m glad you came through it unscathed.

    What were you—an accountant—thinking, planning a wedding in December?

    Marie, I am so happy for you! Best wishes on a long, happy, healthy life together. You were a beautiful bride. Congratulations!
