Top 9 on Instagram
If you have been active on Instagram through the course of a year, then the Instagram Top 9 is always a fun way to see your year in review.
What it does is automatically pull the posts that were liked the most by those that follow you, and puts them into a collage grid.
It’s interesting to see what others have liked that you post, and it’s interesting to see aspects of your year pulled together randomly and automatically.
Here was my own Top 9 of 2019 (@meriahnichols on Instagram )
Wow, what a year.

It’s been an amazing year.
From traveling all over Europe with the kids to buying a house and all the stuff in between (swimming, hiking, watching movies, IEP’s, 504’s and going back to school for this mama!), it’s been fantastic.
I’m excited about the coming year and what I can do now that I am more settled!
Some reflection over our accomplishments in the past year is always a good thing to do, I think. “Celebrate”, as my friend Sarah says, “our done list!”
It’s important. I think it’s really important to take a moment and look through it all and realize that a year has contained so much, and we have experienced beauty, and joy in the course of the 365 days.
Go make yours! Tag me on Instagram when you post your Top 9!
