As I prepare to spend the next week celebrating the holidays with my family and friends, I wanted to also take a few moments to wish you all a merry Christmas as well. It has been a busy, crazy, and overall incredible year here at Living Well Spending Less, and to finish up the year, I thought it would be fun to do a quick recap of this year’s milestones:
January started with some important lessons in homeschooling, where I figured out I had been doing it all wrong. The girls and I learned how to embroider, which was fun, and I also discovered I wasn’t exactly Superwoman.
In February we learned how to make homemade butter in a stand mixer and I also shared my ongoing struggle to get my kids to clean their room, along with the battle strategies that have worked for me.
The month of May started (literally) with a bang when we were in a very serious car accident. Thankfully we all walked away without a scratch! God is good! Later in the month I pared my closet down to just 40 hangers, a move I haven’t once regretted!
In July we made the decision to stop homeschooling. It was a really hard choice to make at the time, but we couldn’t be happier with the school they are now attending.
We started August on the road in the midst of a 29-day, 4,000 mile road trip. I also shared how I get my kids to eat their vegetables, and the vintage secrets I have learned for staying clutter-free forever!
September marked one year since I took my kids’ toys away! I answered some questions and posted an update of how that decision has continued to impact our lives. I also published my first eBook, How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul).
In October, Edie and I hosted 31 Days of Less & More. It was a very thought-provoking month!
From my family to yours, I wish you all a wonderful and blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy 2014. Thank you so much for reading and for helping to make this community what it is.
