I wrote 45 posts this year, which was down from last year (70) but slightly up from 2011 (40). There seemed to be a good mix of family updates, food posts, and then whatever struck my fancy. My five favorite posts, however, form a pretty coherent picture of my year--big events and significant struggles.
Enna's birth story: The most momentous day of 2013.
Choosing happiness: I still struggle with this. I also struggle with choosing complacency vs action. Does choosing to be happy mean being complacent? Can I still be happy but work towards improving our situation?
On my mother, motherhood, the Atonement, and grace: This post was such an awakening for me.
Shifting baseline of moderation: I have spent the last year trying to limit our sugar intake. It has made a huge difference.
A third-life crises: Finding time to create and learn.
Again, I wish I could squeeze a bit more time in to write on a more regular basis (as well as to sew and read and reconnect with Mr. F.). But, the recurring theme in my life right now is that there are a lot of needs and not enough time.
