31 Good Things that Happened in December (2018)

Hello and welcome back to the final edition of All the Good Things for 2018!

I started All the Good Things in January of 2017 and I’m so happy its continued thus far and am hopeful it can continue for a long time moving forward.

If this is your first All the Good Things post, it is a monthly series where I highlight all the good things that happen in each 30-day (or so) span, in the hopes that it can be a reminder of all the undercover good happening in our world amongst all the well known bad.

It’s one of my favorite traditions on my blog and I hope it gives you as many warm fuzzies as it gives me! 🙂

Let’s dive right in!

You can catch up on every month of All the Good Things for 2018 here.
