Taking a Break + Link Up!

December 23, 2014


One of the things I've been extremely thankful for is my blog. My outlet for everything that buzzes around my head. My virtual kitchen, and my learning space for motherhood. It's been quite a ride, and I'm excited to say 2015 is only going to make According to Kiki grow.

I have a few plans for this blog. But they will be slowly constructed. I don't feel like I ever have to rush here. This is actually where I go when I need to slow down.

Today is my last blogging day for about a week. All of you will be on my mind and I wish every one of you safe travels and holidays full of memories. With my send off I thought I'd share the love I've received day after day. These people constantly put a smile on my face and confirm my feelings that there are genuinely kind people in this world. Who knows, you may just find your new favorite blog!

I was so nervous to do a favorites post in fear I'd forget someone. These are the blogs I visit most often. These ladies stand out to me. Not only for their particular interests, but for their ability to connect with their readers. Whether it's through Give-a ways, or just simply reaching out to one another. Those are the best types of bloggers. I recommend you grab a cup of coffee and spend a day checking these ladies out!




 I wish all of you a Merry Christmas! Keep on blogging ladies!

  17. Hi Kiki!! Enjoy your blogging mini-break! I can't wait to see what these slowly-concocted plans for "according to kiki" are!! You have a great blog and a lovely personality and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to "meet" you in 2014!! Thank you SO much for the link-up shout-out, that "These ladies aren't just bloggers, they're writers" is so encouraging for me. I appreciate your love and support wholly! I will absolutely be grabbing a drink and checking out the rest of your suggestions. I think some I have seen from another post? Thank you for sharing and I wish you and your family an amazing rest of the week and can't wait to speak again in 2015!!!!

    MUCH LOVE x100000000
