Thank you for a wonderful year! Looking back at 2012...

I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog throughout this past year. I have been truly blessed to have such wonderful readers. I am already working on some posts for 2013 and I can't wait to get back to blogging like I use to.

I wanted to give a shout out to my top 10 blog referrers from this past year. (I didn't include sites like Pinterest or Google, just fellow bloggers.) I am so thankful that you linked to my blog in some way!

  1. Thank you for those cute ideas! I am a new blogger and would love to get my name out there in the teacher blogging world. I am a K teacher right outside of Nashville (Franklin). I am having a difficult time tapping in and friending other teacher bloggers :) Any advice/shout outs would be tremendously appreciated!
    Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Marlana, you were one of the first blogs that I began stalking a little more than a year ago! My mother & I both got our bachelors at SMSU!! I am now teaching K in a suburb of KC and mom is retired in South Carolina. I saw you like to attend conferences! Are you going to Conference on the Young COnference at Tan Tar A?

    1. You are so sweet! It's a small world, isn't it? This will be the first year I haven't gone to Young Years in several years. I am going to have a job change next year and I won't be teaching Kdg. anymore. It's bittersweet. I haven't posted anything about it yet, because I won't sign my contract until April. I would have loved to have met you. I hope it's a great conference. I heard that Eric Litwin is going to be there. I would love to go just to see him! :)
