The end of December is such a natural time to reflect…
To reflect on the year that's coming to an end, its ups and downs, goals met and goals still waiting to be met, lessons learned and progress made.
It's also a time to celebrate! We made it through another year! Yay!
And as I reflect on 2016, I also celebrate YOU and what you mean to me and our team at Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS.
This is the list of our 10 most-visited posts. I love checking our numbers and stats each year at this time to reflect on the progress we've made, yet also to celebrate the fact that we were able to provide YOU with information and recipes and research that, we hope, helped you with your health and food goals and education in 2016.
So… thank YOU!
Thank you for reading, for commenting (we love your comments sooooo much!), for pinning, for sharing our recipes on Facebook, for listening to or watching #AskWardee each week, for trying our recipes and DIY projects, and for just being part of Traditional Cooking School!
