2016 – The Year In Review

Well, for better or for worse, another year has gone. Here’s a quick review of the highlights:

This year I was able to make 108 posts in spite of all that went on. There were 2712 of you visitors from 64 countries who left 1173 oh-so-kind comments. I greatly appreciate the 56 of you who follow this blog… most of you make it a point to regularly leave comments, too. Thanks!

This year’s most visited posts?

Over on Instagram it’s a tradition to show one’s top nine… the ones that got the most ‘likes’

Some of them were surprising to me. Thanks to the 151 followers for the 2808 hearts and for your kind comments on my 154 pics!

Another surprise comes from Pinterest. Although I rarely pass 50 likes on Instagram and a dozen or so repins on Pinterest, Of the 227 cards and tags I have posted, I am flabergasted to see these four get hundreds, even thousands of repins!

See you all next year!
