Best of 2023

Hey loves. I am so excited for this post. It may not be the end of the year yet, but the holidays are quickly approaching and so much is going on. Let's do an end of the year wrap up. Sharing favorites from memories, Amazon, books, blog posts, and more. 

This year started off on the wrong foot with Covid in our house, then the passing on Brian's dad and a few weeks later his mentor. Thankfully the year got better. We had made some great memories, new friends, and more. Lets jump into Best, Top, and Loves of 2023.

 Amazon top 3 according to me

Address Stamp- worked wonderfully for Christmas cards and looks better than just the address labels.

Sourdough Start Kit- most used purchase and love it.
