Goodbye, 2022! Hello, 2023 😊
How to say goodbye to the old year and welcome to the new one!
Bonus: Make-Up Girl Chat THIS THURSDAY - This Time On Google Meet!
Hello friends. Last night we had some technical difficulties with Zoom which prevented many of you from joining our girl chat, and that broke my heart. I’m so sorry that happened and to make it up to you, we will be doing ANOTHER girl chat this Thursday at 8:30 PM EST! I’d love to see everyone’s beautiful faces again - our community is so wonderful, it’s a blessing to get to know you all better.
We will no longer be using Zoom for our calls. It has proven to be a faulty platform, and I never want what happened last night to happen again. Instead, we will try Google Meet - and if we don’t like that as a platform, we will switch to something better. I want you all to have the best user experience here at Classically Abby, and anything less is unacceptable. See you on Thursday!

This Month’s Book Club Selection
Book Club is meeting NEXT WEEK on Thursday 1/5/2022 at 8:30 PM EST. This month we are reading fiction (we switch up month-to-month), and I’m excited to get into the festive spirit. The book we will be reading is…The Christmas Bookshop! I chose something fun and easy to read as we get into the holiday spirit. I hope it makes us all feel warm and cozy!

Things I’ve Been Loving: Fitbit Sense
I love this Fitbit! It keeps track of my fitness goals, links to my phone for texts and calls so that if I leave my phone in the other room my husband can still get ahold of me, and has a ton of other great features. I highly recommend it, especially as we move into the new year!

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you all had the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of Hanukkahs. I hope you all gave and received gifts that meant a lot to you, and I hope you all spent some cozy time snuggled up with your loved ones. Jacob, Mr. Baby, and I are currently on vacation in Miami, and we are navigating this unexpected cold weather that threw a wrench into our plans! Of course, I know many of you are struggling with dangerously cold temperatures, so I’m sending love and prayers in your direction. We are just chilly over here, thank God. But our beach vacation has quickly turned into a rainy day situation - which has its upsides too. So we are spending lots of time playing board games, which has my husband very happy!
Can you believe it’s almost 2023?? We are just around the corner from the new year, and I can’t wrap my head around how quickly time is passing. Plus, it’s pretty crazy to think that we are 23 years away from the year 2000. That will always shock me. And the fact that Mr. Baby was born NINE MONTHS AGO? That’s insane!
As we approach the end of a cycle around the sun, I think most of us think of the coming year as a fresh start. We want to turn over a new leaf and grow and change in a positive direction. There is something so refreshing about turning over a page that says 2022 and seeing a clean and shiny 2023 at the top of your calendar. So today, I want to discuss five ways we can be intentional in our approach to 2023. Let’s do our best to make the best plans possible for the new year and become even more classic along the way!
