In this post, I really want to focus on my 3 Big Take-Aways:
1) The top 3 posts from This Blog Is Why:
Breaking the Ice
Blogs On The Go
Recharge Over The Holidays
I just want to say that these next two come from 4 Pillars Agency, Horace Mann Companies. Over the holiday break, I had a great time playing a game of Jingle, Jingle, Bells (similar to Duck, Duck, Goose) on Facebook. In a photo finish, I won $75 from the contest (some of which was donated to projects on www.DonorsChoose.org). Be sure to check out @HoraceMann services in your local area.

New Year's Resources (freebie)
3) Will you join me in keeping a jar full of good events in 2017? I think this is a great idea!
