Favorite Posts of 2018

Today I'm highlighting a few of my FAVORITE posts of 2018...

Doodle Town posts were an overwhelming favorite this year.  I had no idea how excited y'all would get about these little coloring pages but seeing how much fun everyone had with them this year and all the creative ways you used them brought me so much JOY!   Original doodle town was the most popular, but  Christmas and  Halloween weren't far behind.

Our trip to Colorado this summer was an absolute highlight of the year and despite the trip down a mountain to the ER we managed to have an incredible time as a family.  

I actually wrote three posts about our trip and you can find them  HEREHERE and  HERE.

I also shared a VLOG that you can watch below :)

I'm not surprised that our trip to NYC made the top post list because it's one of my very favorite posts of the year as well!  I mean - 10 girls, NYC, perfect Fall weather... what could be better?!?!

We had such a blast on Halloween this year and our family costume will go down as probably my favorite of all time so it's only fitting that  this post make my favorite posts list :) 

This one surprised me, but my Amazon Favorites posts were at the very top of the list this year!

They were so popular, in fact, that I decided to add a tab at the top of my website JUST for them :)

I had so much fun putting together Griffin's 5th birthday party and LOVED sharing all the details in this post.  

Y'all got JUST as excited as I did about finally having a solution to the MESS of school papers we had in storage bins.  If a good organization project is on your 2019 to-do-list you might want to revisit this post :)

When I shared Mason's story I was hopeful that maybe it would resonate with just one person... give someone who had spent some sleepless nights worrying about their child a little peace of mind.  I had no idea that SO MANY people would reach out with questions, support and follow-up stories of their own children's diagnoses and success with vision therapy.  And bonus... I loved sharing this cutie in his glasses :)

This balloon arch I made for "birthday month" at our house was by far one of my most-viewed posts of the year.  If you haven't tried a balloon arch you need to!

This chicken pot pie recipe was my most popular recipe of the year and for good reason - it's AMAZING and makes enough for dinner AND one to pop in the freezer for another night.

I still can't believe that another year of blogging is in the books.  I can't even begin to tell y'all how much your readership and support means to me.  I would love to know what your favorite posts of 2018 were and/or what you'd like to see here in 2019. 

Thanks again, friends and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
