2023 In Review

I’m taking a break from eating all the things to finally write my typical year end blog post. Even though I’ve posted the least amount of posts EVER, there was still plenty going on here. I think a lot of this info will be new to readers as I wasn’t blogging much, but journaling almost…

2022 Year End Review

Probably time to give an update to round out 2022. If you just want to know what I’ve been up to for the last two months (since my last post), just skip to the bottom. I won’t judge you for it. Most pictures are at the end. Also – affiliate links! So if you click…

2020 Year in Review

And what a year it was right?? Last year I never wrote a year in review post. Instead, it went out as a belated newsletter to subscribers. In fact I hardly posted in December at all, and in reading my January posts, I’m reminded of the high hopes I had for this year. Lots of…

2016 Year in Review

It’s the time of year to reflect, reminisce and blog feelings of nostalgia. Prepare for a brief overview with pictures.

12 in 2014: Photos I’m Not Trying to Forget

Dwija does it again with a 12 in 2014 Photo Link Up! This thing is a Christmas tradition for me, just like eating candy for breakfast and collecting gift receipts! So, how did my year look?   January- It was pretty much the coldest winter ever and I hated every minute of it.    February-The…

Coming to you live from the sixth day of mirth and merriment inside the twelve days of Christmas! Last year, Dwija hosted a ’12 in 12′ photo link-up. Over a few glasses of spiked something recently, I was thinking of it, got nostalgic and immediately ran to my computer and started scrolling through old posts…
