I’m signing off for the next couple of weeks. If the mood strikes I’ll post on Instagram, but I’m really looking forward to taking some time off. I can’t believe we’re already at the end of 2022!! Thank you so much for being here. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support. It means so much to me and I love having you as a reader.

I hope you’re able to spend time with friends and family this holiday season and, if you’re so lucky, to get some much needed time off too. You deserve it!

See you in 2023 with some of my favorite posts (goals for the year, mantra for the year, 2022 favorites, 2022 best sellers, favorite books, etc.) It’ll be a fun way to kick off the new year!!

Merry Christmas, Carly!! I hope you enjoy your time with your loved ones. Wishing you a gentle holiday season. Your posts are my daily pick me up. I look forward to them each day. Thank you for the spark of joy you contribute to my life. I hope the goodness you send out comes back around to you!


Happy Holidays! I hope you have a wonderful time with your family and friends!
Looking forward to what the new year brings to you and your loved ones.


Merry Christmas, Carly! Reading your blog has been one of my favorite rituals for years- thanks for all you do! Hope you enjoy your time away with friends and family!


Oh, I already feel a pang of nostalgia reading this! I found this blog last summer when looking for reviews on Barbour Beadnell jackets (I just adore mine!) and have been reading your posts ever since. I have had a rough autumn due to some family issues but your daily posts have brought me a lot of joy and given me a welcome chance to think about less stressful things. Thank you for writing your blog, Carly, and Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I look forward to your emails (especially the pics of cutie pie Jack) and thank you for brightening my day. I’m twice your age, but you are an inspiration and I’d like to be more like you when I finally grow up!


Merry Christmas! Yours is one of my favourite blogs – I love how you’ve never strayed too far from ‘classic blog in its heyday’ content (yah I’m old) – it makes for a lovely read most mornings. Enjoy your break!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Enjoy the magic and wonderment that only a toddler can bring to Christmas! Can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store.
