A Year in Review - Top 5 Posts of 2012

First off, I want to thank all of my faithful readers. You have made my dreams come true! Thank you for reading my blog, for posting your comments and coming back again and again. It blesses me to know that people want to read about the things that I write about. This blog is my heart and my passion, and you have become a part of that.

Almost two years ago, someone asked me what my dream job was. I said, "I want to work as a Doula and Childbirth Educator, and I want to blog about my life and kids and all the things that inspire me." At the time, it seemed like such a pipe dream, and nothing that would ever be able to be a reality for me. I certainly didn't think I'd ever be able to make money and provide for my family.

A little over a year ago, with the encouragement of my husband and dearest friends, I decided to go my own way, quit my current day job and began pursuing doula work full time. I also began blogging for Tulsa Kids, and continued to pour out my passion here at Honeybee Mama. 2012 has been a productive and profitable year for me and I'm so grateful. I have served eleven clients and helped to welcome eleven beautiful babies into the world, designed and sold many baby slings and nursing covers, launched my own line of all natural personal care products, and written a birth plan manual (which is soon to be published - that's on my list of 2013 accomplishments!). What an amazing year!

Along with seeing my dreams realized in my business, this has been a year of overcoming many personal hurdles as a family. Blending families is challenging to say the least, and anyone who is divorced knows that the drama doesn't always end when the papers are signed. I am beyond thankful for my husband, Marc, the man of my dreams, my lover, my best friend and truly the best life partner I could ever hope for. What we have accomplished and triumphed over in our first year of marriage is epic to say the least!

I thought the best way to say farewell to 2012 would be to take a look back at the 5 blog posts that had the most traffic in the last year. Without further ado, here they are!

  1. Mama Monday - Focus on Fetal Positioning for a Better Birth - August 27, 2012
  2. Book Report - The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe - January 25, 2012
  3. Perineal Massage for a Better Birth - September 4, 2012
  4. {my moment} - July 6, 2012
  5. Honeybee Mama Sponsor - Jessica Klingeman, AAHCC - November 29, 2012
Again, thank you, dear readers and friends for supporting me and my precious little hive in 2012. I hope you will join us for more amazing adventures in 2013!

Live is what you make of it. Make honey!

Love,
Missy
