Oh what a year 2014 has been. I’ve had some really lovely highs and some very low lows. I was sick for several months between two surgeries and two rounds of pneumonia, but have worked my way back to health again to meet the end of the year. I have traveled a bit, taken some amazing classes, read a lot, and started painting again. My girl is closing in on 4 and is more independent than ever, which means I have more and more space and energy to follow my own heart again. I feel like I’m entering a new season of motherhood – no longer in the baby years, but not quite big kid either.
I wrote about creativity, self care, cooking and coloring. I gave ideas for morning routines, living passionately, and finding grace on hard days.I shared some DIY posts and wrote a fun Pinterest series for Liz Lameroux‘s blog. I put together some of my essays on parenting for the Mothering Moments ebook (free for newsletter subscribers). I wrote for Natural Parents Network, Bay Area Parents, and Sorta Crunchy. I also was interviewed on The Home Hour podcast by Meagan Francis.
I sold a popular Welcome to Summer Packet and ran the 21 Days to a Peaceful Holiday ecourse, but had to table a lot of other products I was planning to launch (look for those in 2015 and get on my mailing list if you want to hear about them first!)
Everything has doubled around here in 2014 – subscribers, page views, and social media followers – so I thought it would be helpful to those of you who are new to see what was popular this year.
