And just like that 2016 is coming to an end. It's been a tough year in some aspects. Many can't wait for it to be over and to turn over a new page in 2017.
I am not one to dwell on the past, but I like a good review to remind myself of what went well and what can be improved on.
We started the year in Chiang Mai, Thailand, finishing our first stint of family location independence. We learnt a lot there - mainly that we CAN do this!
At the same time, I was ready to move on. I had started to associate Chiang Mai with a LOT of hard work and felt somewhat burnt out. The quiet beach town of Hoi An, Vietnam was perfect to relax and enjoy a few calmer months.
We spent early summer back home in Canada looking after my parent's homestead and also went on a fantastic Rocky Mountain road trip. During this time, I finally released my Coconut Flour eBook just in time before we moved on to our current location in Mexico.
We've spent the second half of the year here in San Miguel de Allende. There aren't any posts about it so far, as I feel like this is a story we are still living and I can't write about, yet. But we are really loving it here - the weather, food, people and learning Spanish.
If you are interested to see glimpses of our life here, be sure to follow my Instagram Stories.
So, now for the top 10 recipes of 2016: I had actually planned to completely take OFF this week between Christmas and New Year's. After a crazy busy Q4 I really needed to do some things that weren't work.
But then all these other top 10 posts started appearing and I was just too curious not to dig into my statistics to see what recipes you loved most this year. Turns out you really like a LOT of things posted in previous years. I think these top 3 will be hard to push off their podium, ever!
Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
