Holy cow. It’s 2016. Where has this year gone?! It seems like yesterday that I packed my little car with everything it could carry and set out to drive from Virginia to Michigan to live with total strangers. {Let’s just say I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. I could have been an episode of Criminal Minds.} I’ve changed jobs, quit jobs to work for myself, began building a business from scratch, and poured out my heart and soul and cupcakes into this blog.

And then there’s you guys. The readers and the amazing blog friends that I’ve made. You truly make this blog what it is. Without the people who stop by my little bit of Blogland, read what I have to say, pin their favorite recipes, and share me with their friends I would not be able to work for myself and do what I love. I am so grateful for you. Seriously. I don’t know what I’d be doing without you!

I was super excited {and in some cases surprised} to see this list of top posts in 2015. I love knowing what kept people coming back to CCL over and over and can’t wait to bring you more drool-worthy posts in 2016! Stay tuned, y’all. This is going to be a hell of a year. I can feel it!
