Happy New Year! The week between Christmas and New Year’s is one of my favorite times of the year. I love thinking back over the past year (2012 was a doozy!) and making plans and goals for the new year. I’m so excited about 2013!
After taking 4 months off I came back to blogging last February. I survived the 2nd half of pregnancy, the birth of Samuel, moving to Nashville with a 5 week old, and losing my mom. Yep, 2012 was a doozy. In the middle of all of that craziness were lots of DIY projects. I took a look back and rounded up the posts that you guys liked best. And apparently y’all really like bracelets. :) But no worries – so do I. Yay for more bracelets in 2013!
