2015 Wrap-Up

I'm ready to wrap-up 2015! Who's with me? I've already done the final individual posts for each of my challenges, so I'll add a link here to click-through for titles and more information. I feel pretty good about my challenges for 2015, although I did choose easier, more general challenges for the year. So maybe for 2016 I need to challenge myself more! I'm also including a few short lists of some of my favorites and not-so-favorites for the year, since I didn't do the recent "top ten" posts I keep seeing around--enjoy!
