The BEST OF MooreMinutes 2013: a collection of the top favorites and most pinned this year!

Every year I share YOUR top favorites and the most pinned pictures and blog posts from Moore Minutes.  This year, I am changing it just a little.  I am posting MY favorites from this year instead of the readers' favorites.

I am also adding something new!  I'll be sharing a look through the seasons & holidays 2013 at the end of this post.

To begin, past archives of BEST OF MOORE MINUTES:

And now this year: 2013!
This year was a lot different.  I posted about half the blog posts as I normally do.  I am not sure what the future holds with blogging.  I have some changes I want to make and some big things on my heart I hope to share in 2014 that started with this post in January...

1) Learning about perfectionism, beauty, and being set free

This blog post shared a pivotal moment in my life that changed me from the inside out.  My desire is that it will bless others who share the same struggles I do.

Part TWO of 2013 summary on Moore Minutes 
is a walk through the seasons and holidays 2013.

2013 was a beautiful year of quiet change
 and yet constant consistency for our family. 
 Our boys are slowly transitioning into new life stages
 and Chris and I have experienced a lot of personal growth
 as we are living in our thirties.  

Our year held struggles that grew us, 
blessings that encompassed our hearts, 
exciting moments that made our spirits sing,  
and reliable traditions that comforted our souls.  

My arms stretch out to embrace this life.  
Life is forever a blessing 
and every day holds treasures to be thankful for. 

Thank you to my readers for your loyalty and support! 
 I hope you find bits of inspiration along the way as you read.  
My heart's desire to to push the passion of enjoying the details of life onto YOU. 

Be blessed in your new year!
