The past year has been a whirlwind. I've fought Lyme Disease, weathered a hurricane, and lost a grandparent. But amazing things have also happened! I attended TWO ALA conferences, met blogging friends in real life, gained an incredible co-blogger, added some amazing books to my collection, met a ton of new dogs, went on a cruise, and moved to a new house! All in all, I'd say things have been pretty good.
Since last April I've learned a lot: That I don't always have to know what I'm doing. That sometimes I need to shut up and listen. That IT'S OKAY to not finish a book if it's awful (life's too short). That I'm allowed to take breaks when they're needed and come back when I'm ready. Maybe most importantly I've learned to stay away from bookoutlet.com because that's where the bad things happen.
So thank you everyone for another amazing year in the blogosphere! Keep scrolling to see what we've done this year and, yes, of course there's a giveaway at the end!
