A Year in Review (2012)

Posted by on Dec 30, 2012 in Blog, Ideas in practice | 0 comments

I want to start by thanking you again for your continued support and encouragement on this blog. It is not always easy to know what to say or how to say it, but you’ve stuck with me and given me much to think about (not only refining my existing strategies and tweaking them as need be, but coming up with many new and effective ones). I am truly looking forward to another year with you!

To wrap up the year, I wanted to share some of our top Tot Thoughts posts.
