Best of 2014

December 28, 2014

As another year comes to an end, I like to reflect on this little space in the internet. Squeezing in the time to write this blog has become something that is very important to me. What once started as a fun experiment, has transformed into a hobby and more recently into a job… with a big emphasis on the quotation marks because although it hardly qualifies as a job, I like to think of it as a potential career someday… you know, when I have more time on my hands. But there is a reason that I MAKE the time for it now. I choose it over laundry and tv and keeping abreast of worldly news events (my husband tells me I really need to work on that last one though…..). This is my bubble, my space to come and write about the things that make me tick. It’s a space where I can write about motherhood and all the ups and downs and although I do this for myself, I wouldn’t come here nearly as much if it weren’t for YOU. Yes YOU. Thank you for reading everything my brain spews out.  Every like, comment, share, pin, tweet and double tap, fuels me to write more. Thank you for helping this space to grow. Seriously, you guys rock. I could keep rambling, but I’ll spare you.

The readers have spoken and here were the most viewed posts of 2014……

8. Fear and Miracles – Because sometimes I can use the platform of this blog to actually help someone.
