    Wow! Can you believe 2013 has come to an end? What an incredible year this has been. I am SO grateful to be able to do what I do as my job. I still pinch myself everyday. My blog has grown significantly over the past year and I owe it all to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! My goal for 2014 is to give back to the community in a few different ways and I’m excited to share more of that with you next month.

    My ultimate goal here is to inspire women to create. I also love to see all the projects you have shared with me. It makes my heart happy! Feel free to use the #iheartnaptime so I can see them.

    We now have readers in many countries and reached over 20 million page views this year. I still can’t believe it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along in 2013. I promise not to let you down in 2014. ;)

    Many days this past year were spent in my kitchen, making cookies with my kids and cooking dinners for my family. And so it’s not surprising that many of my most popular posts were delicious recipes. I was also busy planning showers, weddings and moving into my new home, so I was happy to see a few of those posts in the top 10 as well. I split it up into my top 10 recipes and top 10 creative projects. Without further adieu…
