I actually wasn't planning on doing a post like this, but I've had several new-in-the-past-year readers ask if I would. Part of me thought that a list like this would be boring to read, but then I realized how much I've been enjoying seeing these posts on the blogs I read, especially those I haven't followed very long.

So, here you go!

If you're fairly new here, I hope you have fun seeing a bit of what we were up to around here this past year.

And if you've got your own little personalized butt-groove carved out on my couch because you've been here so long, then see if you remember these posts and if any of them would make your list!
