Top 10 Blog Posts of 2013

The beginning of 2014 marks exactly four months since our launch, and not a day goes by that we are not blown away by your encouragement and support.  Houston Moms Blog has gone from just a twinkle in my eye to a community of moms with over 3500 followers across social media and countless pageviews to the blog per day.  It is nothing short of amazing, and I am both humbled and honored to be the fearless leader of such a beautiful thing!

As I look back at all of the wonderful content that was written and helpful advice given, I am filled with gratitude for the amazing team of mamas who contribute to this blog every day.  You may not realize it, but they work so very hard to snap beautiful pictures, write the very best words, and then share little {and sometimes really BIG} pieces of their life with all of you.  And it does not go without notice.  By me…and by all of you!  So here you have it – the top 10 most viewed blog posts of 2013.  Take a minute to read the ones you have missed, reread the ones that inspired you, and be sure to share the ones you love.

Thank you for reading along with us, and cheers to all that 2014 is sure to bring!

Kelly D
Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
