military life posts

Hi! Today I’m sharing the top 20 most popular posts of the year on the blog — the ones loved by all you wonderful readers who chose to visit me here!

A lot happens in a year. When you think back on 2015, what do you think of? Is there an event or theme that comes to the surface?

I was glad to leave 2015 behind. We had a lot of personal challenges, ones that I hope to never repeat.

In some respects those events marked the year in a negative way. But when I take the time to reflect, I remember that we had many wonderful moments worth remembering.

One thing I’m proud of is that I got way more consistent with blogging and even starting making some money doing it (amazing!). My site went from 1500 monthly unique visitors to averaging almost 11,000 uniques per month, and I’m so grateful for everyone who stopped by and took a moment to read!

Below you’ll find the top 20 most popular articles from this year– our chance to remember together what helped you the most and what you loved. And if you missed any, maybe you’ll find a new one that encourages you or helps you in some way!

Knowing what you enjoyed really helps me as I plan out posts for the coming year. My goal is to serve you and encourage you as we walk out this journey as a military spouses/significant others. We gotta stick together!

So, without further ado…
