So another year wraps up. I hope yours was a blessed one. As the year winds down, the tradition here is to look back at favorite posts of the previous 12 months. I hope you enjoy these if you missed them the first time around.

Wishing you and yours a fantastic 2019, and thanks to everyone who visited, commented, and shared what we do here over the past year. I’m grateful for your support. Hope to see you around here in the coming year ~ Erik πŸ™‚
