We can’t believe 2018 is coming to a close. While Ashley acheived zero things on her bucket list. We had a pretty amazing year: Ashley got engaged, Emily gave birth to a sweet baby girl, we hit our biggest blogging milestone to date, and so many more amazing things. We wanted to take a minute to say thank you to each and every one of you. Without you guys, we are just two girls talking to no one so THANK YOU! We did a reader survey yesterday for blog post requests and a ton of you asked us reccommendations on: tv shows, movies, podcasts, books, etc – so we are rounding everything up here — as well as including your top reccommnedations that we will be checking out!
