Don’t you just love the Springtime! Sun, beauty, and positive energy all around!

Yes! Spring is in the air! The sun is shinning, flowers are blooming, Spring cleaning is underway (or at least on our agendas), and we’re feeling energized! Yet, I still can hardly believe that we’re through the first quarter of the year, well into Springtime, my favorite season (sans allergies), and fast approaching our blog’s first year anniversary! Wow! How time flies! Peeking back, I must say it’s been a super hectic yet productive 3 months.

We mused over a rather dissappointing Super Bowl, celebrated the oh so commercialized Valentine’s day,  explored online privacy for both kids and adults, honored women around the world who have inspired and empowered us in history, and much more. Judging by the popularity of the latter, it was obvious that you were celebrating these women right along with us.

As we head into the second quarter of 2014, we couldn’t help but look back at other musings that excited you. Here are your 5 most popular musings of the quarter:

They tag along to your neighborhood cafe where you always get your favorite cup of coffee, local department store to pick up that dress or shoe that you’ve been eying for a while, and even eavesdrop on your phone or text conversation with your friend over where to meet up later for lunch. Creepy right? Read more…
