The Best of 2013

I think my favorite week of the year is the week between Christmas and New Years!  It is usually a quiet, peaceful time with fewer regular responsibilities and more time for reflection.  I like to look back over the previous year and its joys and sorrows, and make plans and set goals for the upcoming year.









In looking back over 2013, I discovered that these were my top five most-viewed posts:



#1 Tackling my To-Do List When I returned Home


#2 How a Wise Woman Builds her House


#3 How do You Look at Your Husband?


#4 What Destroys More Marriages than Anything Else


#5 Loving Your Husband When You Disagree



I'm not sure if you read those particular posts, but lots of people did!  If you were one of the folks who read and then shared with your friends and contacts, thank you for sharing!


In looking back over the year, I've picked these as some of my personal favorites from the year:









The Year My Kids Started School Without Me


A Frog, A Fly and A Curious Little Boy


The One Word of Advice that Changed My Life


When Your Prince Acts Like a Frog


What to Do About Those Warts


Were any of these one of your favorites from the year?  If not, what was your favorite post of mine from 2013??


I also shared a lot of family milestones this year.  If you want a quick overivew of the year, these are my most "newsy" posts:

What a neat idea for this post! I think I will do it on my own blog. :) I loved all your posts about getting your new house - I always love hearing ways God shows Himself to be so real in our day-to-day lives.
