today i'm thankful for: a year in review


In honor of a year of blogging at Finding Joy, I put together a "Today I'm Grateful For" post that highlights some of my favorite posts and events from the past year.  I had so much fun reading through my archives to put together this post.  There are so many things I would have forgotten about if I didn't have them recorded here.  If you haven't done so already, be sure to leave a comment here for a chance to win my favorite summer cookbook!
