A Year in Review – The Blog
This month, for many, is a hectic one. It’s filled with to-dos and to-buys and more to-dos. But this year, I made a pact with myself to enjoy a more mindful holiday season. Instead of simply focusing on the tasks that lay ahead – merry and not – I am making a conscious effort to also look at the next few weeks as a time to reflect on the year that has almost passed and to recharge for the one that lies ahead.
The merry will fall into place naturally, I am sure.
Up first? A look at this little old blog of mine.
It has been around for a few years now but this year saw continued growth and the growing pains that come along with that.
It wanted to be bigger some days and smaller on others.
It introduced me to so many new people, new voices, endless new sources of inspiration.
I struggled here and there with its content, its schedule and its purpose.
But never with its voice.
It somehow always found its voice, with every post. Whether they were frivolous or heartfelt. Whether they were widely read or not. Whether they were meaningful or mundane.
It had its voice.
It reflected my voice.
And for that – and for you, who takes the time out of your day to stop by once in a while – I am eternally grateful.
Here are some of my favorite posts from the past year:
Big Deal or Little Problem? A lesson in parenting and life.
Father’s Day. A lesson on love.
The God Club. A lesson in parenting.
Five Tried and True Parenting Tips. A lesson – or five – in parenting.
For All The Days. A lesson from my three year old.
