2015: A Year in Review and Thoughts for 2016

When I started this blog, I really had no clue where it would be in 2015.  Over the last year, my blog has grown and so have I.  I don’t do too many reviews anymore.  I do more sponsored content and I couldn’t be happier about it.  I have a laundry list of projects and ideas that I want to share with you.  When I bought my Silhouette machine earlier this year, it kick started my love of crafting again.  I use to scrapbook and make greeting cards.  I had kids and I have scrapbooked maybe once or twice.  I finally carved out some time for it all again and I’m having so much fun.  You see, my goal with any sponsored content is to make it not very sponsored.  I want you to get to know my family through our recipes, crafts and other adventures.  I’ll never stop writing sponsored content.  John is laid off for between four and six months a year so this allows us to not be so financially stressed because my writing is able to help provide for us.  Not only that but I don’t have to worry about us being able to afford any extra sports or activities the kids want to explore.  That being said, I THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart for every comment and share from each and every one of you.  They mean the world to me.  I hope you are enjoying what you find here.  Below are some of our top posts from 2015.
