Just a note...

WOW...what a busy few weeks it's been!

How are you? What have I missed? Any exciting news to share?

Not much new here on my end...just the typical December anxiety and rush! Much like mothers and childbirth, I tend to forget every year how hard it is to be insanely busy at work (our busiest season is December, which entails 55-60 hour work weeks).

The work itself isn't bad, I enjoy it honestly...being busy and having too much to do is MY kind of thing. It's the holiday on top of it that makes it harder. All those little things that you don't just need to do outside of work, but WANT to do...fitting those in takes work and lots and lots of patience and planning. I like to think I'm pretty good at it.

BUT admittedly, there are things I'm terrible at keeping up with.
*cough* this blog *cough*

So what I'm really trying to say is...I've been thinking about you and I miss you, but I may be absent a while longer. Just know I'll be back at it in January and that I'm spending what free time I have decorating Christmas cookies, snuggling my family, and spending time with people I don't get to see often enough during the regular year.

All good things.

Here's wishing you all a very Happy Holiday and the best of everything the season brings...especially those not purchased at a store.

One last thing: if there's anyone out there who is feeling a bit down this season, who may not have family close by, or does and is just plain lonely...feel free to email me at kristi(dot)chestnutt(at) I'll find time for you.

Otherwise, I'll see you all around the the new year!


  1. I work 55 hours each week, Kristi, so I know exactly what you are talking about. I kill myself, trying to keep up with everything: writing, networking, promoting, reading, etc. Sometimes we just need to slow up a bit before we miss all of the good stuff. Right?
    Take care and Happy Holidays to you and yours.


  2. Missed you! Do remember to take some time for YOU amid all the craziness.

    Merry Christmas!!!

  3. Hey girl! Missing you a bunch, also!! Don't let those hours get to ya, and we'll see you on the other side of a very Merry Christmas and extra special Happy New Year!! :)

  4. I've really missed your blog. It's so pretty. ;)

    Just dropping by to say hi. HI!!

  5. I hope you had a great holiday season and enjoyed the time focused on your family (when you weren't focused on those long days at work, that is! :))

  6. My novel, "Splattered Blood" was published last month. This project took almost ten years from inception to publishing.
    I'm happy to be living the dream of a published author and enjoying the good things people have said about "Splattered Blood."
