Goodbye 2022.. Hello 2023!


Happy New Year Y’all!

I have been looking through pictures all morning of this past year, and boy what a year it’s been! This year; I had taken the summer off to do Farmers Markets, I had taken one long road trip with my brother and one solo trip flying by myself, I have survived a tornado and a terrible snowstorm on Christmas Eve, I volunteered at my local food pantry all summer, and I finally got a new job doing what I love!

2022 has been a learning curve year for me. It’s been a year or me figuring out just what I want to do with my life and experimenting with different things such as the Farmers Markets, the Flea Market, and traveling. Last year I had pushed myself to see just how far I could travel before my anxiety could kick in. I had ended up pushing my comfort levels way beyond what I thought I could handle! (With no anxiety what-so-ever!)

This past year I have laughed, smiled, made new friends, seen old friends, taken new adventures, and made so many memories along the way!


So, what’s in store for the new year?

I’ll be honest guys, I really don’t know!

Every year I keep saying that ‘this will be the year I get my homestead!‘ And then something happens.. 2020 – Covid. 2021 – Lost my job. 2022 – Took the summer off for Farmers Markets. 2023Unknown.

Honestly, I know I won’t get my homestead this year. I’ve got a LOT of things planned for this year, and the homestead just isn’t one of them (right now). I know it seems a little silly to have a blog about homesteading when I don’t actually have my own yet, but I will have my homestead someday. Right now, however, I am focused on just getting my feet under me and standing up on my own two feet before I can do anything else. After all, I have to learn to walk before I can run.

As I said before, 2022 was a year of learning. And this year, will be one for dreaming. With all of my adventures in 2022, I learned that I am a lot tougher than I thought, and I learned a lot about who I was as a person. This year, I want to keep pushing the boundaries of what I think I am capable of and I want to learn where my new limits are (although I hope to never truly find my limits).

What I can tell you guys, is that this year will be a year of travel and new adventures. I don’t know how much I will be able to blog about my adventures this year, but I can assure you I will still be blogging and posting updates about what’s going on in my life. You guys are all so important to me, and I want to make sure that we all stay in touch this year over blogging, because you guys have all become dear friends of mine. ā¤

With that, I want to wish everyone a HaPpY nEw YeAr! šŸŽ‰šŸŽŠšŸŽ‰šŸŽŠšŸŽ‰ Don’t forget to Smile, have an AMAZING New Year, and think push yourself further this year!

  1. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2023.

    If it’s like here in the UK, buying your own place is really hard now. I am 46 and hoped to have my own place. I have not given up. But I am not focusing on it anymore.

    I don’t think Homesteading is the wrong word to use for your blog. Your on a homestead and you have been doing some things that you would have been doing had you had your own homestead.

    Enjoy writing on your blog and all the things you have planned for this year.
