Top 10 of 2017 – Blog In Review

As 2017 comes to an end this weekend, I was curious to see what blog posts were the most popular this year. It is interesting to look at the numbers and results each year to see what it is that YOU, my readers, are looking at the most. It also helps me in planning content for the future. 

Thank you for follolwing our journey and visiting and share the blog over this past year.  It is obvious from the stats that you like the travel and family content we have been adding, along with the meal planning and recipes. There will me much more content in these categories this year as we streamline the blog and offer you more content. 

Here are the top 10 posts of 2017!
