It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

We clear our schedules and spend time with family and friends. We’re a little friendlier to strangers, a little kinder. We assess who we are, the direction we’re heading, and start planning out the new year to make life all the more wonderful.

I’m taking the week off to read, hike, golf, and play with the kids. Instead of a new post, here are the top six posts you might have missed this year. They’re the most-read, most-shared, and most-loved posts of 2017.

In chronological order:

Have a great week. I can’t wait to see what we accomplish in 2018!
