Happy (almost) New Year!

I’ve been enjoying the last few days spending loads of time with my family, and I couldn’t be more grateful for these last few weeks of the year where it’s totally ok to do that. There’s been a lot of pajama lounging, tv watching, and general relaxation going on. I hope you’ve been able to recharge these last few days too!

While resting and recharging, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I want to take my blog in 2016, and what I want to accomplish for myself while still being present as the mom and wife my family needs. If you have any feedback for me, I’d love to hear it. What do YOU want to read more of? What do YOU want to read less of? I still plan to write about what I like and what’s important to me, but one of my goals for 2016 is to be more focused and to know when to say “yes” and when to say “no” to opportunities.

In the meantime, let’s take a look back at my 2015. I would say that, honestly, only the last 6 months of 2015 really “count” for me because I didn’t kick my blogging into high gear until early July, so most of these posts may seem pretty familiar to you. Feel free to book mark this page for future reference! There are a lot of great reviews about local activities and restaurants in my city, fashion for kids and adults alike, travel tips and more.Sarah in the Suburbs Most Popular Posts of 2015My Most Popular Posts of 2015

  • I’m on the Chick-fil-A Moms’ PanelChick-fil-A Moms PanelOne of the exciting privileges I’ve gained since becoming more serious about my blog is the ability to apply for programs that put me in direct contact with brands I love and trust. Chick-fil-A is one of those brands, and I’m so proud to continue working with them in 2016!
  • My Sensitive ChildMackenzie the ballerinaAh, a parenting post. I was definitely hanging on to my sanity by a thin thread when I wrote this. I can thankfully report that we are much more evened out emotionally these days, but I will be eternally grateful for all the private messages and word of encouragement I got after I wrote this post. 

And last, but certainly not least, my most popular post of 2015….
