2014 Year in Review

2014 In ReviewHappy new year everyone!

Every year seems to fly by in a blink. One great thing about a year coming to an end is being able to reflect on the past year and be hopeful for the new year. It’s been one year since I started this blog and I’ve learned so much. Thank you for joining me for this journey and taking the time to read my posts. Y’all are the best!

  • my fav post of yours is the feet exfoliating one… because.. well… bwahahahaha i just can’t get over it.
    i’m so intrigued by the books you read this year! i really love all things neuro so i’ll have to look into the ‘drawing on the R side of the brain..’ book.

    that is seriously my fav pic of you!

    • haha you would love that post :p you’re just jealous you don’t have baby feet like me :p haha
      yes!! you should definitely look into “drawing on the right side of the brain”. you can definitely see my drawing improved dramatically. the concept is so interesting.
      thanks!! guess i’m still a sucker for all things cute 🙂

  • I absolutely loved Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow! Wasn’t it a riot!? Oh man, I couldn’t stop laughing during the first quarter of the film XD

    I’m going to have to look into the books you’ve listed, I’m curious, especially with the one titled “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.” I love books that shed light on historical events 🙂

    Great post by the way!

    • Haha it was hilarious. My husband said it basically reminded him of a video game where you just keep starting over and trying to figure out how to beat that level. Is that why you like it too since you love video games?
      You should definitely read “Unbroken”. It’s an awesome book and the best part was how he was saved by God and shared his love with everyone. Too bad the movie didn’t go into that part. I was really sad when I found out he passed away this year. Too bad he didn’t get to see his movie in theaters.
