A Look Back at 2016 & Looking Ahead to 2017

I can’t believe we’ve already reached the end of another year.  This has been my blog’s 2nd year in existence and I’m proud to say that I was able to accomplish some things that might seem small to others but were a big deal to me.  I started this blog as a way to share ideas that have been working well to keep my family organized, fit, fed and having fun.  Everyone has their own thing that they are good at and staying organized, creating systems to make life easier, cooking, and creative, fun little ideas seem to be mine.  My hope is that other people will find an idea that works for them to make their life easier or more fun.  Happy people generate happiness. I also really enjoy the creative outlet of blogging and the fact that it helps me learn something new almost everyday.  Something as little as learning how to adjust the spacing on my header and menu bar using html makes me feel SO accomplished and gets me excited.  I know, I’m a total weirdo.
