Best of 6th Street 2013

Us | December 30, 2013

I always love rounding up my favorite posts from the past year. It’s incredible to me to see all that I’ve been able to share and do in one little year. 2013 was a year of exploration and discovery for me. With the birth of my little Jane I felt the need to cut back on either my blog or my business and I originally decided to cut back on the business. The decision felt right to me but as the months went by I started rethinking my decision. I eventually decided to refocus on the business but make some big changes to the way I ran things. So far I’m very happy with my decision and as always appreciate all the support from my readers! I hope you are able to spend some time clicking through some of my most favorite posts.
