{30} Posts I’m Proud Of

favorite posts

I am counting down the days to my 30th birthday, and I couldn’t be more excited! Truly! As I was brainstorming ways to celebrate here on the blog, I couldn’t help but think that 30 lists of {30} items would be just about perfect for my type-A, list-making self. Join me for the next month as I share the things I’ve learned in the past 30 years and my hopes for the future! See all 30 Days of {30} posts here.

I’ve shared lists of Life Your Way’s most popular posts before, but I’ve never taken time to compile a list of my favorite posts — the ones that still speak to me when I come across them in the archives, the ones that I’m proud to say I’ve written!

Most of these were posted on Life Your Way, a few on Simple Mom. But they’re all posts I’m pretty proud of that probably don’t get the attention they deserve now that they’re buried in the archives!
