Can you believe Christmas is NEXT WEEK? Paul and I are heading to Florida tomorrow to spend the holidays with his extended family. From there, we’ll be heading on a cruise with his immediate family. So I’ll be somewhere in the Caribbean when 2019 strikes. This will be my last blog post of 2018 (my first FULL year of blogging!). For my final post of 2018, I am sharing a recap of 6 of my favorite blog posts from this year. I hope you enjoy!
Round-up of 6 of AHA’s Best Blog Posts of 2018
Heidelberg, Germany Photo Journal
I love this post so much. The photos bring back such great memories of my time in Europe. Heidelberg is one of Europe’s oldest cities and it’s full of history and is home to Heidelberg Castle, dating back to the 13th century. Find the full post here.
The Art of the Brick, LEGO Exhibit
Legos were one of my favorite toys as a child. I had the opportunity to attend the Art of the Brick exhibit in Kansas City earlier this year. The exhibit, created by Nathan Sawaya, offers a wide variety of pieces including re-creations of traditional art work, such as DaVinci’s Mona Lisa. Find the full post here.
