As I am sure at least some of you noticed by our lack of new content, we both took a quick holiday break from the blog to focus on school finals, work, and family time. And to be honest it went by way too fast and getting back into the swing of things is feeling extra tough this year. I definitely get the post-holiday blues.
However, both Machelle and I love the start of the new year because it allows us to reflect on the past year and double down on our goals for the next. To be honest we did not accomplish all of our goals this past year but we do have a renewed vigor behind us for 2016! We are still solidifying our precise goals so they are not quite yet at the point to share but trust me they will be fairly soon and we cannot wait to grow and experience new things with you all.
2015 was a year that I could not wait to be over. Too many times it just felt too hard too often and by early December I was like “see ya 2015!” However, placing blame on 12 calendar months is actually pretty silly when you start to think about it. Any year, any day even can be terrible or joyous and here we like to focus on the positive. Despite some of the heartache and stress, 2015 also brought the following: awesome blog projects including two fun blogger swaps; two (way too brief) weekends together in Utah; almost weekly business calls (this is included because we are very proud of our somewhat professionalism); a new blog design, travels to Mexico, France and Brazil (plus smaller road trips in between); Machelle and Stella living it up with me in DC while Greg was out of town; another year celebrating both of our marriages; Machelle fully attaining platinum blonde hair; successfully completing Whole30; Malissa finally starting a book club and of course Stella turning one.
It would not be a proper review post without sharing our favorite and most popular posts of the past year. What one was your favorite? Did you make any of them? What would you like to see more of in 2016?
