2014, A Year in Review

January 02, 2015

First off, Happy 2015! I can already feel in my soul that this year is going to be a good one. I've enjoyed taking some time off to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends and am thrilled to be back on the blogging grind. 2014 was a year for so much growth and learning. However, before we move on to goals, resolutions, and hopes for the new year I thought it might be fun to look at what happened on the blog in 2014.
