New year, new coffee talk–but let’s make it champagne as we begin a new year! 🙂 Come join us as we start off 2022 on (hopefully) the right foot… previous coffee talks can be found here! I love getting to know you all through our virtual coffees.
Did you have a good holiday season?
We did! It was so nice to stay at home and not have to travel,. I’m so grateful for our health and being at home with my family.
What was your favorite part of 2021?
Honestly, 2021 was a pretty good year, all world events considering! I loved starting this blog and meeting all of you. I also loved finally seeing the event I planned for two and a half years finally happen! (All attendees/vendors were vaccinated AND tested negative within 72 hours in advance of the event.)
What do you hope to accomplish in 2022?
I wrote a little about my goals in last month’s Coffee Talk, and I’d also like to add a few! I’d really like to track all of my expenses this year. I’d like to redesign my website to make it more accessible and user-friendly, including adding a “sign up for new posts” feature that I’ve had a few requests for. Finally, I’d really like to get a small business idea I’ve had off the ground.
What’s on your mind as we enter another new year?
I’m worried about a lot of things, honestly–covid continuing, Afghanistan, and the contempt so many people seem to have for their neighbors. The world seems more and more divisive; I’m hoping, in my small way, I can help create a caring and loving community for my family. Not to sound preachy–I need to work on this as much as anyone!–but social media echo chambers really do seem to cause greater divisiveness, and I’m working to not be so reflexive in my thinking.
What are you most grateful for as we begin a new year?
I’m grateful for my family, my friends, and for you! I’ve so enjoyed beginning this blog and getting to connect with so many amazing women! Community is incredibly important to me, and I’m grateful for my in-person community as well as this virtual one. Thank you so much for reading along in 2021, and I hope you continue to in 2022!
I love reading your answers–thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
