Linking up with the lovely Sarah, who makes having 6 kids look amazing!
Posts with the Most Clicks
My Working Moms Link-Up had the most clicks this year. I started that link-up in order to find and give support to other working moms in this blogosphere. All the moms who shared their stories feel very similarly in that while they might love and/or need to have a job, they also value being a mother far above career.
Posts with the Most Comments
Our baby announcement, complete with the kid's reaction on video had the most comments. Everyone loves a baby! So if you're feeling like you don't get as many comments as usual, just make a big announcement and watch them roll in. The blog world is so supportive!
Post with the Best Picture
I love my family so much, and Father's Day this year was one of the best ever, because four of us ran a race together and then we went out to a fancy brunch to consume twice as many calories as we burned off. I was so proud of John-Paul and Andrew for running their first 5k in such a good time. It wasn't long after this photo that Baby #6 came into existence :)
Post that was the Hardest to Write
By far, it was my post talking about my struggles with anxiety. It took me quite a few days to write, during which many tears were shed, but it was extremely cathartic. So many of you struggle with the same thing, and just knowing that is so very helpful. Plus, lots of family and friends of mine didn't even know the extent of things, and they reached out with their love and concern. I am so blessed.
Personal Favorite Post
Most of my writing is just downloading the mundane thoughts from my brain and uploading the photos from my camera so that I can record memories. Every once in a while I write about something slightly more important. My post about how Catholics have a head start on living a good life, and the rest of the world is still trying to decode it, is one of my favorites because it was inspired from reading trashy magazines at the gym. See, honey, they're not all bad ;)
