It’s almost over y’all. We made it to the end of 2017. For all the bad/crazy/WTH, there were good moments too, yes? I don’t know about you, but I’m already marking up my 2018 planner. Action comes much easier than reflection for me, but in the spirit of action/reflection, here are some tops from 2017.
Top Blog Posts
I didn’t write nearly as many posts here as I have in past years but the posts I did publish were longer, more thoughtful, and felt much more ‘me.’ I’m ok with that. (and even proud of it)

Top Podcast Episodes
The Upside Down Podcast is just so much fun and I couldn’t be more excited that topics close to my heart are also the top two episodes of the year!
There are six books in no particular order because I couldn’t narrow it down to just five. It should be noted that The Hate U Give is the first fiction book I have read in twenty years. It is Angie Thomas’ debut novel and it is PHENOMENAL. I think you should read all six of these.
How to Kill a City, by Peter Moskowitz
Not All of Us Are Saints, David Hilfiker, M.D.
The Soul Tells a Story, Vinita Hampton Wright
Barking to the Choir, Father Greg Boyle
Hallelujah Anyway, Anne Lamott
The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas

And just because it’s fun, my IG top nine:
Peace out 2017!
