Best of 2014

After all the hits of 2013, 2014 was a little slow on Pale Yellow.  However, after checking my stats from WordPress, I’m actually up 9,000 views from last year.  So after all, not a bad year.  There was a lot of quinoa salads and overnight oats; not as many cupcakes.  It’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging for three years and this past one was the most stressful.  Going back to school has cut into my free time drastically.  Imagine that, lol!  I hope 2015 allows me to focus on quality or quantity because I still enjoy this hobby very much!

Here are the top 1o posts from 2014 (all made it 2013, whoops!):
