Top Ten Posts of 2012

For the last day of 2012, I thought I’d participate with the rest of the blogosphere and post a blog recap of 2012.  I started ranking it simply by visitors but there were some favorites I just couldn’t leave out.  So without further adieu, here are the 10 most visited and favorite posts of 2012.

After coming back from Allume, I started consistently participating in What I Wore Wednesday by pairing the photograph of my outfit with an inspiration photo from nature that matches.  By far, it’s been my most popular post of the week since and my favorite post to assemble.

Together for Our Good was one of the hardest posts I’ve ever written but it’s what blogging is all about for me…sharing the good and bad.

My first garden is one of my favorite accomplishments from 2012.  My garden provided encouragement, insight and inspiration over and over and I was glad to share some in this post.

#4 Royal Blue Shoes



Another What I Wore Wednesday post made it into the Top 10.  Clearly everyone else was a little clueless on how to wear their royal blue shoes too.

#3 iPhone Help



Well, I owe this popular post to Google, the eBook That Works for Me and Apple for making a crappy lock and home button on the iPhone 4.  Here’s what to do to help you when your iPhone’s lock or home button quits working.

In September, I wrote a letter to my 16 year old self.  Writing to my younger self was healing and connecting.
