2018 Year-in-Review

I’m not going to lie, readers; this has been one crazy year for me, both personally and professionally. At times it’s been almost a struggle to keep this little slice of Internet going. (Here’s a post a about a particularly difficult time I had with this blog.) But as another year reaches it’s end I can reflect back on all the things I did manage to share and I still feel pretty proud of myself of what I was able to accomplish. Sometimes recognizing the strength it takes to get through the day is an accomplishment in and of itself. Here are some of the things I’m most proud of this year:

This cherry vanilla cake was my most popular recipe post this year.

This was the first savory baking post I ever wrote. (Judging by the way it turned out, it won’t be my last!)

Here’s what I read in the spring, summer, fall and winter.

I shared my quickest, dirtiest organizing tips for when you only have five, ten or fifteen minutes of spare time.

I finally got to write about one of my favorite books of all time and ‘fessed up to my love of YA fiction.

My family suffered a great loss around the holidays last year, so I didn’t get around to baking for Christmas. (I did it in 2015 and 2016.) I’m so glad I started up the tradition again this year.

These are my favorite books I read in 2017 that I almost never got around to posting, and my favorites from this year.

What were some of the highlights of 2018 for you? What do you hope to accomplish next year?

See you all in 2019!
