AHP Wrapped: A Year in Review
As a music lover, one of my December highlights is the yearly Spotify Wrapped playlist. For those of you who don’t use the music streaming service, your “Wrapped” playlist is a compilation of the songs you played the most in the past year. Honestly, my playlist is a mixed bag of my favorite songs of all time and the obnoxious hits of the moment. Sometimes I’ll sigh and say, “Why did I have to get that song stuck in my head and play it 30 times in one day?”. More often, I’ll think, “Yes! I forgot about this amazing song.” No matter what, I always appreciate looking back at the soundtrack to my year.
For the final article of 2022, I’m sharing a collection of the 2022 blog posts that mattered most to our members. These cover your interests, best practices, and those issues that keep you up at night. But I promise, unlike the songs on my Spotify Wrapped playlist, these articles are all winners.
