Sunday Post #194 Welcome 2016!

Happy New Year my friends!! 2015 has come to a close and I managed to read/listened to 22 books in December and a grand total of 266 in 2015. Of those, 53 were audiobooks. 2015 was a wonderful year that began with the arrival of Princess Sophia. I left my job and opened the doors wide on my virtual business. In April I began watching Sophia four days a week and couldn’t be happier. I am both nervous and excited about 2016. Hubby and I have some big plans and a few trips scheduled some of which could lead to big changes. I will share more when plans become more concrete. My bloggy-vacation has really recharged me, my cough is loose, and I am so excited to be back online tomorrow. I miss visiting and chatting with you all!!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Stay Caffeinated!

    I hope you are finally able to rid yourself of that nasty cough soon! Sounds like you had a wonderful 2015 in books and holiday. I am hoping to get back to exercising more regularly again, especially now that the holidays are over. I like the idea of #FitReaders, and may have to jump on board. Here is to another great year in books! Have a great week!

    I’m hoping to listen to more audios this year. I thought about joining the audiobook challenge, but decided that would be too much pressure since I decided to dip my baby toe back into challenges (other than the yearly one at Goodreads/Booklikes) with the Bookish Resolutions. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂 And I will *zips lips* about the box of chocolate. 😉 Have a wonderful week, Kim!

    Happy New Year Kim!! You did great in your reading goals. We also are planning some trips for 2016 to celebrate my daughters high school graduation. She says 2016 is “her” year so we’ll see where she finally decides she wants to go (hopefully it will be something we can afford lol). It’s good to hear the cough is going away. I hope you have a great week =)

    What a year you have had! And as usual your reading stats are seriously impressive! I’m curious about the Robin Carr. This is the year I’m going to read her and I’m already excited! I’m glad you enjoyed your break but it will be nice to see you around again! Have a great week!

    Happy New Year! There might be one or two big changes coming my way…we’ll see. 🙂 It is nerve-wracking. I’ll be waiting to hear what your changes are! I hope 2016 is as good (or better!) to you than 2015.

    Wow, do I ever have a ton of your posts to come back to from last week. I was was working on my End of Year Book Survey post and it sucked up all of my time. Sorry I am so late commenting today. I started a buddy read yesterday and I am having trouble keeping up! Happy New Year and have a fabulous first week of 2016. 🙂
