I cannot believe we are at the start of another brand new year!
A year full of amazing possibilities. A year of growth and memory-making. But, before we embark on a brand new year, it’s always helpful to look back and reflect on the year that just ended. Doing so allows us to look back to set new goals for moving forward.
So, as I sat down to plan out the things I want to write about in the upcoming year, I took a look back at what you guys liked in 2016.
You loved my printables, and for that I am so thankful. Those are my favorite posts to share. However, you also enjoyed some free resource posts and homeschool encouragement. Let’s take a peek at my most popular posts from 2016
