Here we are with the close of 2019 in our sight. The act of hitting pause and taking a moment to look back and reflect on the past 365 days has always proven to be a life-giving exercise.
I’ve been doing this since I started Piano Pantry and it always proves to be a lesson in gratitude – not just for what’s been “accomplished” – but for what life has given. Opportunity and the freedom to do what we love can easily be taken for granted in today’s world.
Thank you for being here, for connecting with me whether it be through Facebook comments, email replies to my newsletter, or comments on blog posts.
I hope that my little slice of pie in the online piano teacher content world proves to be, for you, not just useful, but inspiring, invigorating, and more than anything…inviting.
In today’s post, I’ll share:
- Five posts from 2019 that you deemed that most “fabulous” (by visiting them, of course 🙂 ).
- The top five posts of all time since Piano Pantry started in March 2016.
- A month-by-month run-down of the posts from 2019.
- A few fun stats.
I’m looking forward to what 2020 has in store!
