Well, the holidays are over, the kids are back to school as of today, and it’s time to get back to business.

I have a few articles in the pipeline, covering an eclectic range of parental musings and travel destinations, but today I just want to take a look back at 2013 and share FNFF’s Five Most Popular Posts of the Year:

Weird, right? I mean, a squash bread recipe? This one proves the power of social media. Two hundred and fifty-one people tweeted this post, it was popular on FB and Pinterest, and it was frequently reblogged. Seems people have a lot of surplus squash on their hands.

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who visited and/or took the time to leave your comments in 2013! It’s a strange thing, but I’ve gotten to know a lot of you ‘personally,’ had some great conversations, and even influenced a few lives. I find that incredibly humbling and I’m sincerely honored.

Best of luck in 2014, and I’ll see you all soon.

Best,
Matt
