New Year’s Wish!

Hello darlings! How are you?

I know I haven’t appeared over here in these last months… In fact, since the beginning of this year of 2018.

However, I need to tell you this was a year full of emotions for me! I moved to another city, I started on an internship, I’ve been reading lots of books because of college… So it was an intense year!

But that’s also true that I missed writing here so much, throughout this year. And, how I wasn’t having time, I focused on share our beloved classic quotes on Instagram, almost daily (if you want to give a look on this Instagram, there’s a link on the right side of this page!).

Then, I’m telling you all this story to make you a promise (that’s one of my new year’s wishes too!): I’ll try very hard, return to write here in 2019! At least, once or twice a month… Is that enough? But the fact is: I really need to return to write and practice my English and that’s a space that I idealized to do this.

So, to finish this year and start the next, I wish you all an excellent New Year’s Eve and a 2019 full of happiness, brightness, achievements and all you wish to these new 365 days! Hope you keep with me over the year!

With affection,

Silmara Cavalcante, from Classic Popcorn!

P.S.: Feel free to share with me your plans to the next year! I’ll love to know! 🙂
