2013. It has been a fantastic year! I look back and enjoy memories of watching our new grandson grow, our second daughter getting married, holidays and special days with all our children. Amazing things have happened here on this blog as well. I’ve made new friends, renewed old friendships, venture into uncharted waters (for me), taken steps to fulfill life-long dreams! And now, a look back, at the Year 2013, here on Apron Strings & other things, well all 8 months’ worth, anyway.
First up I’ll list the most popular posts along with some of my personal favorites in 2013, in no particular order.
