What a year this has been!
I don’t know about you, but I am SO looking forward to bidding farewell to 2013 and looking forward to all that this new year promises to bring.
Although this past year continued to be dominated by the scary C-word, I am so thrilled to know that I am entering 2015 cancer FREE!
This past year was also the year I decided to take my health into my own hands more than ever before, which is Why I Decided to Jump on the Essential Oils Bandwagon.
I decided it was time you knew more about me, so I shared a huge list of things you may or may not know about me this past year.
It’s hard to believe the year is coming to a close. It was a great year for Saving Dollars and Sense that brought a lot of changes to the site. Hopefully, you are happy with the way things are going and will continue to follow along into 2015 as I have many new ideas to share in the New Year.
I wanted to take a minute to revisit some of our most popular posts and share them with you.

This was also a year of battling health issues for me. I learned a little more about what it means to have faith and to cherish each day of life you are given.
We enjoyed another year in our new house learning how to grow a garden in this new to me soil using this What to Plant When Chart.
I opened up about a few things that were really personal to me when I realized that I Needed to Learn to Forgive Myself.
This past year we also said goodbye to a part of our family and welcomed a new member.
It’s looking like this will be a great year and I am incredibly blessed to have the very best readers joining me on the journey to see where the new year takes us.
I have some great things planned for the new year and cannot wait to share them with you!
