Reader Favorites from 2020, A Year in Review

I wanted to take this chance to thank all of you for being here, for supporting me all year long. It’s been a crazy year to say the least, but I want to share with you the reader favorites from 2020.

Looking back over this past year, I thought to myself, I haven’t done much. Doing all the things can be overwhelming at times and sometimes you just have to let things go.

We have done a lot in the Facebook group this year, monthly challenges were popular and a lot of new people joined us. If you aren’t in the Facebook group head on over and JOIN NOW!

Instagram took up a lot of time this year too. Video for Instagram is definitely easier than YouTube. Head over to Instagram and check out the Reels. It’s a new feature they added this year and it’s pretty cool.

Of course I got pulled into TikTok, I can watch the videos for hours and since I was on there anyway I figured I might as well add my own!

I got to spend a lot of time with my little diva and that was the best part of 2020! She is walking and talking baby talk. She has even learned how to say “sorry”. She’ll do something she isn’t supposed to do and then say, “sorry”. It’s hard to be mad at her because it really is the cutest thing!

Thank you again for supporting me and being here during this crazy year. Cheers to 2021! Goodbye 2020!

Here are the top 10 posts from 2020
