Happy New Year Love GIF

Howdy howdy howdy, darlin's! I know we've been a little quiet on our end, but as we move into the new year, our team wanted to take a minute to express some thoughts to you all as we move on and ahead.

From yours truly!:
The happiest of new years to you darlings. I know everyone has their own corner of stress happening, and some people are struggling more than others. But you are each loved, valid, and have a frog thinkin' of you over here ♥ Even if I'm hibernating a little bit. I want us to continue to grow, and to support one another like nobody's business.

Auntie Angel (~MetalAngel444~) :
We had a great year, alot of old faces have returned and we have many new fresh faces. Let's keep a positive momentum into the new year and make it better than the last!

Prac :
Grateful for you nerds. ♡

Let you declare 2023 complete—whether you did what you said you were going to do, wanted to do, or you didn't—and let you eat well, rest easy, and be unmovable in your magnificence.

I challenge you to pick a word for this year, a theme to stick to.
My word for 2024 is going to be 'Grace' - to give to others, to act with, and to give myself, most importantly.

Put your word in the comments ♥ What does it mean for you?
 
My word for the new year is... Serenity. As my mind is often scattered, I find it sometimes hard to place yourself in the present moment, feel it and accept it for what it is. I want to work towards finding a more general peacefulness in all moments that permeate my life this coming year, good or bad.

Can't wait to disrupt all of my characters' serenity for the entirety of 2024
 
My word for this year is twelve-hundred. As in calories. As in 1200 is enough for me. I've been hitting the gym after work (3-4am) which is nice because it is empty. I felt really motivated after losing a few pounds so huzzah! Imma keep going. :emoji_bug:
 
I didn't have a word but now I think I have one: Renew. I need to rediscover myself in different ways and renew myself in others. I've fallen on hard times and then continued to be compacted into the earth, but I'm not giving up, I'm standing again and I'm going to heal myself. That's my path for this year.
