I started the year by sharing a motivational post about NOT going on vacation

My favorite snack of the year was my husband's homemade hummus... you can find the recipe here

I also shared my thoughts as an autism mama after a story about a 9 year old autistic boy broke on the news... 

By April the weather warmed up and I was able to get some outfit posts on the blog!

Ruby even joined me for some #Passion4Fashion posts!

In September I finally got around to sharing what I had been living most of the year, when I shared this post: Stepping up when your partner breaks down.
UPDATE: although he still isn't back to work, he sees a therapist weekly and finally had his medication under control. He even has a job lined up this Spring at a local garden/nursery! Yay!

I only blogged once in October and that was a Thanksgiving post about everything I was thankful for in my life.

A few weeks ago I share #LifeLately... the kids each celebrated birthdays recently and I was finally able to get some Halloween costumes up on the blog!

Really looking forward to blogging more consistently in the new year! I miss it!

Have a safe NYE everyone!
