The Top Ten Posts of 2015 Here at WTSHB!

Well, 2015 is (almost) officially in the books now!  Cray, cray, I know.  They say time goes by more quickly as you get older, and I definitely believe it….it’s almost going by at warp speed now, so I must be getting really old! :)

It’s always fun to look back and reminisce over the year that was, and since this was my first full year blogging, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and find out what the top posts for this year have been.  I did a mid-year check, and while those reader faves appear below too (naturally), I was a little surprised by the results.

However, I was NOT surprised at all by my Number 1 post…..that was a certainty since it’s my closest thing to viral status!

And oh, what a year it’s been.  I’ve been lucky to be featured at lots of great places, including Good Housekeeping, Country Living, Huffington Post, Make Magazine, and Red Tricycle, among many others.  I’m so excited to see what 2016 has in store….but not before a little look back. :)

#1: Yearly Back-to-School Shirt with Handprints for Every Grade!

Yep, this one went viral (or at least my closest thing to it) which totally shocked me.  It also knocked me up over ONE MILLION total pageviews, which shocked me even more!  If I had known so many people would love this keepsake idea too, I would have tried to take better photos of my little man. ;)
