As I look back through my year, all these pictures and words, I realize how incredibly blessed and happy this year has been. I have a full life with lots of wonderful people that make me happy, and I'm surrounded by beauty if I just take one second to see it.
That's not to say that this year hasn't been hard, because it has been. In a lot of ways, this has been an incredibly hard year. I've done a lot of changing, and that involves lots of fighting. Fighting to change things about myself that I don't like. Fighting to become the type of person I want to be. Fighting with personal demons and family demons and the dark and ugly things that happen in this world. In some ways, it has felt like a very long and very hard year.
But ultimately, it's been a very good one.
And so, without further ado, I present my year in review! I chose to do categories this year, instead of regular month-by-month lookbacks. All these are clickable links. (LINK-UP AT BOTTOM OF POST)
my decision to not be a full-time teacher next year (to date one of my most popular posts)
on beauty, and my postpartum body (another all-time most popular post)
Now it's your turn! Link up any and all year in review posts below! Yours doesn't have to look like mine at all to join :)
1. Link up a year in review post
2. Provide a text link back to my blog in your post (example: I'm linking this post up with Brooke at Silver Lining)
3. Comment on at least two other blogs who have linked up
That's it! Happy linking, and happy new year! Thank you so much for reading along with me and my family this year.
