Happy New Year! Does anyone else have a hard time believing that it is 2016?
I had such a great year. I watched my baby boys grow into wonderful, smart radiant young children. ( They’re now at the respective ages of 2 and 4). I traveled to Door County, Wisconsin with my family-twice. I traveled to Marco Island with my family last January. I started running seriously again, which resulted in a 12 lb weight loss. Celebrated my 9th wedding anniversary and turned this little ole blog of mine into a full fledged business!
2015 was a great year. But I know that 2016 will be even better. I do believe that life gets better as you get older. I was once afraid of getting older, but now I am just so excited to see what life has in store for me.
Here were some of my favorite things in 2015.
Favorite New Kitchen Tool- Silicone Baking Cups. ( <— affiliate link) Oh My! How did I ever live without these? I LOVE them. My sister-in-law gave them to me for my birthday last year, they’re amazing! In 2015, I used silicone baking cups in my kitchen ALL the time! Like in my Sangria Fruit Cups, My Frozen Kale Pie Cups and my Ricotta Cheesecakes.
