Best of ’13

I am a little slow on the pick-up most days.  That’s why we don’t do a lot of activities for Christmas and Thanksgiving until the week of.  I suddenly wake up a few days before big events and think, “I should do something for that to teach my kids why we do it.”  And sometimes, it still doesn’t get done.

So, I woke up this morning, January 1, 2014 and thought, “Hmm…it would be cool to find out what posts were the most popular on this blog for 2013.”

I know!  Bloggers have probably been doing this for quite some weeks, but here I am just figuring it out.  But, I started genuinely working on this blogging thing in January of last year, so I while I have learned much, I still haven’t figured out everything.

I did a quick search of what was most popular on Simple.Home.Blessings. in 2013 (google analytics is kind of spooky) and there were some surprises in there.  But if I am honest these are some the posts I am most proud of from the past year.
