New Glasses and Some Thoughts

I hope you like my new glasses, I won them from Jessica of Bookworms in Dresses. They are from a company called Firmoo and they came in a nice case with a keychain glasses screwdriver, so cool!
I've actually won a few other blog giveaways before so I think I need to give back soon and host some more of my own. What would you want to win in a new giveaway? A Nerdy Monster, button pack, etc.? I have some other ideas, and if you dear reader have something you'd like me to help you giveaway here, don't hesitate to ask!
Speaking of my Etsy shop, I really want to start working on some new products and that's one of my goals for the new year. In the mean time, tomorrow I'm launching a sale  for 15% off of orders that are $5 or more. The code will go live tomorrow! (check this Instagram for it!)
I'm posting this on Thanksgiving (and writing it the day before). I'm doing the cooking and hosting out-of-town guests and yet I still feel like this kid pretending to be an adult. Yet I'm 29, married, and living on the other side of the country as my parents. I don't know if I'll ever ditch this imposter syndrome (but maybe the fact I'm re-living my 14-year-old self is not helping.) 
I haven't gotten too personal here on this blog recently. That's for a few reasons, for one is it's really no ones business but there's also fear there of appearing too vulnerable. The truth is I've had hard time lately. The hard drive crash incident started it but it's probably a combination of things, being away from my family and friends being the biggest one.
Thanks for sticking around, reader, I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. I'll be going home for the holidays this December and I'm counting on that raising my spirits. So many highs and lows this year. Thanks, as always, for reading.
