Happy end of December!  It’s time for another top posts wrap and the 2nd Best of the Blogs Linkup!

Best of the Blogs Linkup- Linkup your top post of the month or a wrap up of your top posts! The last weekday of every month on Running in a Skirt.

Hello, hello, hello!  How is it time for another monthly wrap up and Best of the Blogs Linkup?  I swear this past month just evaporated on me!

December has been a good month.  The highlight of the month by far was my trip to Hawaii.  The Hubs promised me we could go back for our 5th anniversary, but both of us decided this year we were tired of waiting and jumped the gun!

So far I’ve posted about running in Maui, the sunrise at Haleakala and Upcountry Maui and a fabulous dress and dinner at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.  I’ve got more posts planned in January and can’t wait to share more Hawaii fun with you.

Today is a big day because it’s the 2nd Best of the Blogs linkup!  The linkup will be open through the holiday weekend and this will be my last post of the year!

Last month’s linkup ended up being pretty successful with 32 links, so I’m hoping to continue to grow this party!  Make sure to not only drop your link, but check out the other fabulous posts other bloggers leave.  We had an amazing roundup of posts last month and I enjoyed reading all of them!

Just a reminder, if you are blogger, you can linkup either a Top Posts recap like I do OR one of your favorite or top viewed posts of the month.  The idea is that we will have the best this blog community has to offer for each month in one place.  If you are not a blogger, this will be a great resource for you to learn about new sites and view some incredible posts.  It will be held on the last weekday of each month. <— it’s a day early this month because of the holiday!

You can follow along with the hashtag #bestofblogs
