Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break and a great New Year celebration.

I went out of town to visit family and had such a wonderful time! So wonderful in fact that I didn't have time to read my last book for my Fall Reading Challenge! Oh, well. Maybe I'll get to read Kindred by Octavia Butler sometime later this month. I'm really looking forward to reading this one.

As I have stated before, the purpose of the Reading Challenge is simply to motivate me to read more--and on that point, I have succeeded tremendously! In 2012, I probably read less than a handful of books. But in 2013, thanks in large part to the Reading Challenge, I probably read close to 20 books in total! I'm going to take a little break from the Reading Challenge but don't worry, I hope to be back this summer with a new Reading Challenge! Book suggestions are welcome and I will be sure to keep up sharing my book reviews as I find interesting reads this year.

A new project that I will be trying to get off the ground is a family history blog. As many of you know, I became interested in genealogy almost two years ago. I've been doing extensive research on my family tree as well as collecting photos and family stories from relatives. My goal is to put the information that I have learned into a blog to share with family (and maybe even connect with some cousins I never met!). I still plan to do a few updates on my photo restoration project throughout the year on this blog.

So that's my start to the new year. I wish you all a wonderful 2014 and lots of success in whatever you endeavor this year.
