What a whirlwind this last year has been! We started doing these for the first time last year and although we weren’t anticipating making it something we do every year, creating the post last year was actually pretty fun. It was interesting seeing what posts did the best this year and reflecting on some of the activities, things, and recipes we made from the year. It’s also fun seeing what posts we’ve written a long time ago that have come back and were really popular. We’re also thankful for our readers, like you, who read our posts.
As we reflect on this past year, we’re excited to look back on some posts that we’ve written that you’ve enjoyed too.
Here are some of our popular posts from this past year.
