2016 blog year end recap + index
Just a note - I'm taking a blog break until December 30th. This is a busy time for many people and blog readership usually goes way down during the last few weeks of the year. I'm going to enjoy some time with my family and then work on preparing for a new year of inspiration. I hope you will all have a wonderful season of celebrating. I will be posting on Instagram during this time so be sure to follow me there.
In the meantime, this post ought to keep you busy for a bit! ;)
2016 was my eleventh year of blogging and I'm proud of all the content I shared and created here. I have great readers who make it fun and more than anything, this blog keeps my creative juices flowing.
I decided to repeat my ambitious project from last year of creating a recap list about all my blog posts for the year. Hopefully, this will be a great resource in the future for me and for all of you as well!
There are several themes and categories that I center most of my posts around. It was an interesting exercise to take inventory of what I have done for each topic throughout the year.
