Reflecting on 2017

As I am reflecting on 2017, drinking a delicious cup of coffee (it seems to be one of my favorite afternoon things to do), I first want to thank each and every one of you who have been so faithful in trying some recipes, following me on social media, reading my blog posts, and just encouraging me every step of the way.

Reflecting on 2017 - Drinking coffee, thankful for this past year and all that God has done. http://thelittlemomma.com

Y’all ARE great.

So looking back, there was a slow start to the year because I struggling during the first trimester of my second child. Food was not at all appetizing then so there were very few recipes posted during that time. If I’m honest, my diet consisted primarily of frozen sausage biscuits. Not at all healthy, but all I could keep down at that time. But we’re much better. Haven’t had a sausage biscuit since.

Once Spring rolled around I was able to start making more recipes and trying new things. Then we found that we were expecting a boy! How exciting?!?!

Summer quickly came and went. Our family did some traveling and got to see some friends and family, which was so refreshing! The end of Summer and Fall were some of the biggest growth for this little blog.

Also in Fall our baby boy arrived! So precious he was and still is.

Now it’s Winter! It feels as if the year has gone by so very fast.

I’m also starting a new series next year called Nourishing Plates where I feature one of your recipes every month. So excited to share your recipes and stories to show how food can nourish us in so many different ways. If you have one to share, send it my way! I can’t have too many recipes!

Everyday I am learning more and more about the blogging world. Learning more about food photography, recipe development, nutrition, cooking techniques, and so much more. So many different recipes I’ve made and more that I want to try! If you’re curious about what some of the Top Posts are for this blog, here are the top 3:

Some friends have told me that they love these recipes too (y’all are the sweetest, truly):

If you try a recipe feel free to comment and let me know what you think! It’s always so great to hear from you!

So excited to watch how this grows and to grow along with you all! Is there anything you want to see in 2018? More recipes? More of mom life? Nutritional information with recipes? How tos? Or any other ideas? Please comment on this post or feel free to head on over to my contact page and send some thoughts my way!

I love to hear from you!

Hoping your year was truly wonderful and blessed.
Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
