Best of 2016



2016 has came to an end and 2017 has already began. How is that even possible? It seems like 2016 was the quickest year ever. Time really does fly by. This year seemed to be a really rough year for us, but the Lord always provides and he saw us through like always. God is so amazing! He always make a way and he never disappoints us. 2016 was a great year of blogging, so I figured I would jump on the bandwagon and reflect upon my favorite blog posts of 2016. I hope you enjoy...
