2017 has been an interesting year at Orthodox Motherhood!
We rebranded the blog–changing the name from The Orthodox Mama to Orthodox Motherhood. This definitely took a lot of work, but overall I am very happy with the transition!
Our family also had a huge move and changes as my husband began seminary at Holy Cross in Boston this fall. Because of this adjustment, I have not been as consistent as I would like to be these past couple of months. I’ll be talking more about this (I’m calling it my year of “Goal Failure”) later on this week.
However, it is always fun to sit back at the end of the year and see which posts really resonated with people.
Here are the posts that people enjoyed the most! Let’s count down the top 10.
