Happy Holidays & an Announcement

The last hot days are finally over. There looks to be another couple of mid-70s on the horizon but - fingers crossed - we'll be in full holiday mode after this week and keep the thermometer no higher than the mid-60s during the day.

Proper December weather...for Savannah, at least.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving and I'm super thankful for everything that has happened this year. We closed on our first house last December 06; this will be our first official Giving Thanks meal in our OWN HOME! I met a wonderful doctor who actually LISTENS to her patients and helped me uncover the mental health challenges that have been causing ALL of my physical health challenges over the past 15 years. I met two chiropractors who understand the mind/body/musculo-skeletal system connection and have taken me from being terrified to leave the house (even just to go to work which is a very safe space) to going jogging at a local park twice a week). Because of these adjustments in my health, I've been able to think clearer about my art and my future and I'm very happy that both of those are on wonderful paths that - at last! - make sense (well, to me at least!)

I'm also very thankful for YOU, Dear Reader, and for all of you who have stuck with this little "blog that could" over the past decade or so. Today is my last post until the beginning of NEXT YEAR! Yes!! January 2020! It's looming in the distance and I'm super excited about what it may bring!

I've heard people lament the passing of an old year. I've also heard people dreading a new one. I've always looked with fondness at old years (and sometimes happiness because it's OVER!) and excitement for the new. This year is no different. While 2019 has been very good to us, I'm happy to say, "Farewell!" and ready to say, "Bonjour!" to 2020.

A clean slate.
A fresh sheet of paper upon which to write those goals and finally - yes, FINALLY - get them up and running.

So happy Thanksgiving to you ALL!
Festive Holiday Season, Happy Yule and MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year! I wish you all a season of good food, good family and friends, health and prosperity, wonder and magic. And make sure you focus on the last two the most <3

I'll see you all here in January xo

PS: You can still follow along on my Instagram account: @jenchandlerwashere. I post there daily (if not on my feed then in my stories). I'd love to see you there! xo

    Some health roads are difficult to traverse, but your roads are smoother these days, it seems. Praise God!

    2020. Wow.

    1. Thank you so much, Susan. Yes! I'm so very thankful that I'm doing better and I'm gonna keep on getting better and better! Happy New Year!
