My Favorite Posts of 2015

I can't believe that a new year is just around the corner. As we near the new year-I'm getting ready to set new goals and I have so much to look forward to. 

Narrowing down my favorite posts of 2015 was not easy--not because I think they're so wonderful, but because these posts are so representative of so many good/bad/important memories and it's hard to pick a favorite. I do have a Favorite Lines page, though, where I highlight my favorite posts and I think it's time to update it with some of these:

How We Met--My Husband's Story
Way back in the day (when I had a different blog) I asked Zach to write up the story of how we met. He wouldn't let me read it until it posted to the blog and it had me on cloud nine all day that day at work. Years later, I found it and put it up on this blog. So for those of you who like to hear those kinds of stories, you'll like this one. 

Motherhood Did Not Steal My Identity 
Before Motherhood I heard all the warnings that told me I might "lose myself" in motherhood. I believe just the opposite has happened. 

I Don't Parent by a Label
I'm not loyal to a single parenting label because I am loyal to my daughter and her individual needs. 

My Parenting Choices Shouldn't Offend You
When someone defends or explains their parenting choices do you get offended thinking they are not valuing your different choices? Perhaps we should start considering the real reason people share their choices. 

If I'm Not Looking
A reminder to pay a little more attention to the little things my husband does. And to nag less--a lot less. 

Each Season
A discussion about the changing seasons of motherhood.

Marriage is Tough
A discussion on what calling marriage "tough" means to me and why. 

Why I Haven't Lost the Baby Weight
A post I was scared to share for a number of reasons. I open up about the weight I'm still carrying, a bit about why, and a really honest look about my struggle with body image. 

Moms & Politics 
My thoughts on politics now that I'm a mom. 

I'm Not the Woman He Married
I've changed a whole lot since I got married and I have my marriage to thank for that! 

Check back next week for a few of my favorite resourceful posts! 

Linking up with Aubrey Zaruba, Our Pretty Little Girls, The Adventure Starts Here, and Wife Mommy Me for the 2015 Blogger Year in Review.
