I started reading the Mix and Match Mama (Shay Shull) blog a few months ago, which rekindled my interest in blogging and inspired me to to start blogging and updating my own blog again. Her blog is really fun and I love her cute, little family! They have so much fun!
She does a "year in review" this time each year to recap the highlights of the year. So, I'm going to do the same!!
