Highlights of 2016

2016 is coming to a quick end. This year seemed to have passed quickly, and I'd like to take a moment to reflect on 5 highlights of the year. Thanks to Daisy Designs to hosting this blog link-up.

Getting serious about my TpT store and it paying off. I've had an account for a very long time and I've posted things as a seller from time to time but I've never been too serious about it. I will say that my ELA teaching partner, Andi, inspired me to do better. With the encouragement of others and my inner, "You got this voice" my work has paid off tremendously. With my military husband and my struggle to find a job that I liked during our first relocation. I feel that my TpT store will come in handing when it's time for us to pick up and move again.

Collaborating with one of my closest friends and creating a blog together. I feel that 2017 has many great things in store of the both of us. Check it out.

Having friends visit for my husbands birthday and again for Thanksgiving meant a lot to me this year. You've been her for 2 going on 3 years and this was a first. Being so far from home makes it hard for friends or family to come and visit us. I really cherished that time with them.

Finally being able to go home, to Arkansas. I've haven't been home since we moved to Colorado from Louisiana in 2014. I hit the road with my 4 year old and 7 year old for a road trip to Arkansas this summer. I was able to see my brothers that I haven't seen in ages, spend time with cousins, and spend lots of time with my aging granny. 

We bought a house! My husband is a US Airman and we've only ever rented homes. We planned to buy when he was on is way to retirement in our home state of Arkansas. We finally took the plunge and decided to look for a home to buy here in Colorado. It was one of the biggest, scariest, and best decisions we've made this year. I am proud to be a homeowner.
