Top posts of 2012

Pin It
I'm being just an itty bit different than many of my fellow bloggers and posting the top 5 posts of 2012 on this, the first day of 2013.  I had a guest post to go up yesterday and and I didn't want to steal her thunder!  I hope you'll take a look at some of the best (or at least most popular) of 2012!

5. Top 5 weirdest things about living in the US again
With so many adjustments after our return to the US from spending most of this year in Marburg, Germany, I needed to write down just what all of these weird things were.  After I did this post, I realized there were a lot of things I left out.  I added to that list with this post, More weird things about living in the US again.

4. Over YOUR threshold: On Why I Moved to New York
The second guest post in the series on "why do you live where you live" that grew from my own post.  It's an interesting question to think about and I'm always looking for others to share their stories.  Check out the Over YOUR threshold tab at the top of the blog for more info.

3. Over YOUR threshold: Leaving loved ones
The first guest post on the above topic and my shining star!  I guess her story really resonated with a lot of people (though I wish more people would have commented!).
2. Book Review: War Brides
This book was hands-down the best piece of fiction I've read in a long time.  While there were certain plot points I'd like to discuss with the author and I was disappointed about the resolution (or lack thereof) on some points, it was an emotional ride that I couldn't put down.  It makes a perfect book club read because there is so much to discuss!

1. Movie Review: Courageous
Easily the most-viewed post of 2012 and easily most-viewed of all time with more than 4 times as many views as the next contender (below).

Honorable mention:
It's the most wonderful time of the year
I first wrote this post in 2010 and have re-posted it the last two years because I have still wanted to share the same thoughts.  If I combined all of the page views for each time it was posted it would rival the most viewed post of all time.


  1. aww. shining star :) let me know when you want another!

  2. I love that movie Courageous. My husband and I just had a little girl, so it was nice seeing it together.

    I am a new follower. I found your blog through Messy Wife, Blessed Life. I'd love a follow back!
