As we (finally) wrap up the blazing dumpster fire that has been 2020, we continue to be amazed and humbled at how much Jacksonville Mom has grown and evolved over the years, even during a pandemic. But most of all, we are so very thankful to you, our readers, for your consistent support. Jacksonville Mom has always been, and will always be, for YOU.
That said, we wanted to share our top 10 most-read blog posts from this year along with a few honorable mentions. If you’re anything like us, you don’t exactly want to relive the year — but perhaps you can look back and laugh (too soon?). Or maybe just chuckle… or hell, a smirk will suffice. Happy reading!

“I am not that skinny ripped mom trying to sell you the next miracle weight-loss program, and I have a real love/hate relationship with exercise. I’ve done everything in the book and lost 50 pounds, so I thought I’d share a few things that have worked for me.”
