It’s been a whole year already!

I was just looking at the calendar this morning, and realized I have been writing for Everyday Elements for an entire year already (March 14, 2012 was my first post)! Wow how quickly the time has flown by! Through Everyday Elements, I have learned new things, traveled new places, and met amazing new friends! For those of you who have read my posts, thank you so much! I love what I do, and I’m so glad to be able to share in it with others!

For my one-year-anniversary post, I thought I would do a highlights post, and share my favorite 5 blog posts I’ve written for Everyday Elements (in no particular order and the titles are linked to the original posts)!
