Have a Happy Holiday! Plus, The Best of The Blog 2015...

Merry Christmas, friends! I've always cherished this time of year, when everything seems to stop and a peaceful calm blankets the whole world. It really is a wonderful thing, isn't it? We're enjoying a quiet Christmas at home, and I'm looking forward to some leisurely games and lots of delicious food.

I hope you have a relaxing holiday and new year with family and friends! We'll be back to regular posting on January 4th, complete with lots of family photos from our holiday shenanigans! In the meantime, here's a look at 2015 on So About What I Said (cue flashback music)...
Disability posts, including the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act, an inspiring model, 12 (medical) things you don't know about me, a surprising revelation during my physical, how to pack the perfect hospital bag and what NOT to say to someone in a wheelchair.
Letters To My Future Husband, on topics like the power of names, choosing you every day and missing seeing that first handshake with my father.
Love Lounge posts, such as first kisses, how you know you're in love, four things I know about love, the dangers of double standards and the allure of bad boys.
MEMO TO MEN posts, like four things more important than looks, where you can find me, questions to NEVER ask a woman with a disability, similarities between dating and blogging and confusing mixed messages.
Fashion posts, such as Polo Shirt Season 2015, top lip balm picks, pretty pendants for fall, 10 quirky jewelry finds and my new haircut in DECADES!
Beauty posts, like watercolor nails, the best fall hair accessories and Adele on being yourself.
Dream Home posts, such as this beautiful floral entryway, tropical wallpaper, romantic rooms and a rooftop pool.
Dream Vacation posts, including the Pacific Coast Highway, Ms. Bear's trip to NYC and tree camping.
Family posts, like fun times in the winter, the best age to have a baby, conversations with Ms. Bear, wise words on crying, my 34th birthday, four lessons my father taught me and more on my father's suicide.
Pop culture posts, like favorite Etsy finds, Open Letters, inspiring women, movies, music, television and more from the In The Pursuit of Happiness series.
And, finally, we celebrated the launch of four new series: Blogging Club, Style Guide, The Science of Love and Tuesday Tunes!

Whew, what an exciting year it's been!! I can't wait to share 2016 with you, friends, and I hope you know that I'm grateful for you EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Thanks so much for reading and for all your support. Have a wonderful holiday and new year -- now GO RELAX!!! xoxo

  1. You've had such a cool year! I love your pop culture and letters to your future husband. I'm sorry I've been so MIA (work and home life are insane) but really would love to contribute to one of your series. Have a lovely new year!
