January 

I interviewed my kids as part of our yearly interview.   I wrote my final Heartfelt Acts.  And wrote about Life's Balance

Alex's first basketball season began

 I showed you how I organize my papers (and my life)

And I talked about Motherhood and how it always changes- in what became one of my most popular posts that month. 

A few pictures I love from the month


February

I found out I got published in a magazine!  Told you about a Ground Hog Day that would be worth repeating and the one time I was on TV. 



And one of my favorite things from the year-my bedroom makeover!  I re-did a bunch of furniture, a few new pieces and the room was transformed.   Tips and how to on this post

A few favorite pictures

March
 Shared tutorials from my bedroom makeover, here, here, and here.  Talked about how service can help heal

Eric had a birthday

Ryder gave his first talk in church
My kids had spring break, so I didn't really blog very much.

It's crazy how re-doing a few key pieces and adding a few things can really remake a bedroom. I love how it turned out! I will have to check out those posts as well. I cannot believe that we are already reviewing January-March! This year has FLOWN by!!

    1. Thank you! Buy my plane ticket and I will come ;) Though it might end up looking just like mine as it took me a long time to think of how I wanted mine and decorating ideas is not my strong suite!

    1. I do love looking back as it is often is the weird or strange years that as I look back, I am able to see and find the good amongst the crazy and sometimes even see what the bad things helped with in the end. I do hope you recap.
