Closing the Books: Top Posts of 2014 and a Blog Hop

This week, the blogosphere has been abuzz with reflections on 2014, and here, it is no different. It's fun to go back and look at what posts were popular in terms of views and comments. As with anything, reflecting on the hits and misses provides the foundation for future plans. 

I am so grateful to my readers. Your comments and support have inspired me to consider projects once thought of as pipe dreams. I can't wait to see 2015 unfold. Thank you!

And now, here are the posts that provided the most traffic in 2014. Have you seen them all? Interestingly, most are among the most pinned as well.
