Top 12 of 2014 {my personal favs}

. .... .. ... ... ... ... ..... .. ..... .. . . .. .... .. . . .
I guess its not too early to close out the year of 2014 - with all my personal favorite posts!!  Here we go...


This month's selection was a hard choice for me to make, but because I really do love poetry so much as well as a pile of snow...  I'm sharing here, a poem on the topic of HOME, and a few homemade snowflakes... the kids are anxiously awaiting to rehang these in our window.  I'm sure we'll add a few new ones, as well.


This post continues to speak encouragement to my own soul - as I often think of the power of a spoken word or two...


This is such a sweet post, with photos, of my two girls - having a grand time...playing in the last of winter's snow!!


This was certainly another hard month to pick my favorite post from. I finally settled on this one - due to the practical reminder I still need today.

 Super Mom


My favorite post of all time - I think!!  Just because of how true this earthly friendship is in and of my life.  As well, as that of my Saviour...


Hear! to be heard.  {the art of listening}
A choice I was faced to make, in the moment...


A lack of comments on this post may feel discouraging... but, all in all... I really wanted to embrace the moment and season of my heart in this post.
By and large it is and was my favorite post of all July.
Strawberries, Basil and Balsamic Vinegar


This post still makes me smile, today!!  Truly - A Moment to Remember!


When. {When all else fails, read the directions.}


This whole month of October was a favorite of mine. Albeit to say, the hardest one to pull off.  Because it was here that I posted 31 days of Home Quotes and Sentiments. As well, I wrote each post in Five Minutes while doing a Photo Challenge, to match.   You can go HERE to see the list of each post.  But, if I were to pick my most favorite it would be this one... on Listening!
It also happens to be the date of my husband's Birthday!  Which made it extra special.


You may have noticed, this past year I've been doing a lot of Five Minute Friday posts... a real challenge I've been so enjoying.  Attempting to write a post in or under five minutes.  Sometimes it's feasible and other times it is quite the challenge.  I had also slowed down in blogging for the month of November - perhaps October wore me out :) ... 
But to pick one for November.  Out the Window ::Turn would have been my favorite post, here...  


One of my favorite  holiday recipes - new to me! - was this one...Smart, Sweet and Tart  {a Cranberry Nut Dessert}

So, those were my personal favorite posts of 2014.  Thank you for reflecting back with me...over the year.

HA... because I love all your posts heartfelt, fun, inspiring, and just good food... but I will admit I have learned alot in my walk with God from you as well as others...

    1. Jes - I hope you don't mind that I reposted this comment from where you had left it - on that particular post of Strawberries, Basil and Balsamic Vinegar. I also thought about linking this post, today, with your Art of Homemaking Link-up... I think I still will. Thank you for your kind thoughts and daily dose of encouragement. You are such a blessing!!
