The month of December has been fairly busy, but I am forcing myself to take some much needed time off. If you're anything like me, you'll agree that the holidays, although a wonderful time of the year, can create a lot of undue stress and anxiety. This is especially true if your family is fragmented or cannot get along. It seems as though no matter our age, we automatically regress to children once the whole family is under one roof. The roles we grew up with tend to resurrect, and the ever-common triggers get tripped over.
That said, I was determined to have a relatively peaceful holiday. Although I did not get as much rest as I would have liked, I was still able to work on some projects and catch up on my long-overdue reading list.
Anyway, here's a quick update of my month before I get to the good stuff:
WHAT I'VE BEEN READING
"The Truth About Everything" by Brianna Wiest
"The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath" by Sylvia Plath
"Women Who Run With The Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D.
"The Gifts Of Imperfection" by Brené Brown
"In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts" by Gabor Maté, M.D.
"The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern

IN OTHER NEWS...
I've been working really hard at stepping up my personal brand on Instagram (@shanleighwats) - so keep your eyes peeled and give my account a follow if you haven't! Expect a lot of new projects and designs coming your way in 2017 - I'm still learning how to build a website, so bear with me through the trips and tumbles. That said, I have a lot of aspirations for where I'd like this space to go, and I'm so excited for where the future takes me. Thank you so much for joining me on my adventures and I look forward to providing you with even more projects and inspiration in the new year!
AND NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF:

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and happy new year!
