The Best of 2014 a Year Review!

  This is my first year in review since I started blogging. I am excited to bring you the top ten posts of the year. Together we have accomplished more then I ever dreamed of when I started Dragonfly & Lily Pads in October 2013. I want to thank each of you for support.  As this year ends I have a sense of relief, excitement, and a positive outlook for the coming year.
Why relief you ask? Because we all have times that our life takes us in a totally different direction. I believe in helping when there a need from some one you love. Family has taken on a whole new meaning to us this year.
Excitement now your wondering? Making that day in Oct. 2013 count as Something New each day by writing DNLP blog. This blog is a bit of a gift to myself, as I express my creativity, share my love by inspiring others, and transforming all of us into the people and lifestyles we strive for in everyday life.
   OK! A little deep I  know but, it is truly how I feel.
Positive outlook is pretty easy because, this year has been a difficult year outside of these pages. 2015 is going to be different. I have learned a few valuable lessons about who I am and where I want to be this coming year. I will be sharing more about these goals during the coming year.
Today is about the closing the past year 2014 and opening a new door to 2015. Choosing what I want to carry with me as hard taught lessons, and what to Let Go! Yeah I went there...LOL

 While preparing this post I found out interesting information. I learned that you enjoy my +Silhouette America posts. I found out that even a post that did not do that well in 2013 soared to #3 in 2014. The posts that are made for a specific person, gift, or reason seem to inspire you to comeback to read DNLP. You like tutorials better than look what I did posts, which taught me you are seeking information and learning from my blog. I am paying attention to the lessons I have learned from this year. Dragonfly & Lily Pads will be ringing 2015 in with content you desire, a more user friendly design, and I will be attending two conferences to learn how to move my blog forward in this ever changing format.
   The best way for me to serve you is to stay connected. Please Join the group Dragonfly & Lily Pads in 2015.
