I've started thinking about the highlights of my blogging year as 2015 is coming to a close. Blogging is one of my very favorite hobbies. I genuinely look forward to writing every week. I love taking pictures and I love sharing my life with you. Thank you for reading along with me. These are the 5 major blogging highlights I've had this year.

I made a conscious effort to pull out my DSLR more often this year. I can tell a difference in my pictures and am happy to see my skills improving. I feel like my posts include better images than in years past and more pinnable, delicious, high quality looking things. I still have plenty of iphone pictures, but I'm pleased that I have taken the time to document life with my real camera.

I got to participate in fun giveaways with Freshly Picked moccasins, Marley Lilly, book reviews and co-host a weekly Tuesday Talk link up. I love that blogging has brought new opportunities into my life and challenged me to try new things. I've enjoyed making connections with new companies and businesses.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
I made the decision to cut back on the number of posts I write this year and I am so happy that I did. I have really enjoyed posting less and making sure my posts have great content. My focus on quality over quantity has helped me to weed out posts and only blog about the things I'm most interested in. It's also freed up some time for me to spend with my family and I'm thankful for that.

A big reason that I blog is to document our life. I LOVE looking back over the last 5 years and seeing how much my family has done, changed and grown. I am not much of a traditional scrapbooker, but blogging has given me a wonderful platform to document and share my family with you. Thank you for caring, interacting with me and being interested in what we're up to.

MAKING NEW FRIENDS
I am so very thankful for all of my bloggy friends. Some of you I've known for years and others just came onto my radar this year. Thank you for inspiring me! You bloggy ladies are amazing and I'm so thankful to share this blog life with you. I've met some of you based on the states we've lived in at the time, others through link ups and some I can't even remember how we connected. Like I mentioned before, blogging is one of my favorite hobbies and I love interacting with you!! I'll have to put together a list of fun bloggers for you to check out in the new year.
I can't wait for the 2016 blogging year ahead.
I'm working on some fun new goals that I'll share with you in January.
