Hello, January!

Could it be that January is well underway?! Chris and Olivia are both back at school and I feel like I am finally (slowly!) getting back into my groove. I never did get around to sending out holiday cards this year…but I hope your holidays were wonderful and that your new year is off to a great start! Our holiday season was so magical this year. I think Olivia’s age made everything even more fun than ever before.. She (we) really had the best time and for the first time we both felt kinda sad it was over. It seemed to take us a while to bounce back and she is still holding on to one special ballerina ornament she just couldn’t bear to pack up. :) We had a fabulous Noon Years Eve with some of our favorites, and on New Years Day, my little hostess with the mostess worked so hard to make a “special party” for her grandparents at our place that day.

When I asked over on Instagram what you wanted to see more of in this space, there were a lot of requests for more wellness posts- more on essential oils, cleaner products to use at home, safe makeup, etc. There were also a lot of requests for more recipes and entertaining posts. So I’m going to do my best to give you more of that. If you have other requests or any other feedback, please always feel free to comment below or email me. (katie@sodressedup.com) Connecting with you is one of my favorite parts about blogging, so please always let me know what you think both here on the blog and on my social media channels. My instagram community has grown quite a bit since I first started, and I don’t want to loose that feeling of connection just because there are more of you. So if you’re not seeing some (or any!) of my posts there, be sure to check in from time to time. I try to post pretty regularly there and again, I love hearing from you.

I’m excited to be home today working on content for the upcoming months. In the meantime, you can check out the new Valentine’s Day Shop for some party and gift inspiration. There will be more coming, too! While we still have candy canes out on our coffee table, we’ve got conversation hearts on the end table and Valentine’s Day on the brain, big time. <3

Thank you all so much for being here with me! It means the world.
