Here’s a quick review of 2013 — and let’s be honest, this post is mostly here so you won’t think I’ve died and stopped blogging. (In contrast to dying and continuing to blog, also a possibility.)
The 2013 most-viewed-in-a-day post was this photo-tour of my crossfit box (which was also one of the top posts for 2013).
The most popular post from 2013 overall was a recipe for oat flour pancakes. You pinterest-y people seem to have found it, and have been pinning it here and there. Thanks!
The post which generated the most discussion this year was my farewell to my mother, who died in April. Thank you, dear readers, for making the time to speak to me on that day.
I was not as prolific in 2013 as I had been in 2012. Three posts I enjoyed writing, which I think sum up where I’ve been this year, are In majesty of mud, Worth waking up, and On the right foot. Of my various day out posts, Croome Court might be my favorite post result, although The Rollright Stones and Pi=yum sums up a day I could repeat over and over with perfect contentment. (I did visit the stones four times this year!) When the sun shines, Witley Court, and Cotswold Drive are three posts I’ve returned to during these dark months to remind myself that the sun really does shine in England … sometimes. The posts from France live their own separate existence, in a beautiful croissant and coffee-rich world.
This is a blog of images, of course, and I find I can’t choose my favorite image of 2014. I’m greedy — I like them all — I wouldn’t share them if I didn’t. So I’ll post a new photo, from a visit to Toddington railway station, the northern terminus of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. I can’t think of any one image I’ve taken which sums up “England” more perfectly than this!
Here’s to more explorations in 2014. Much love to y’all as you come along with me!
