Hello friends! Thanks so much for stopping by to see what our top 10 for 2016 are! All 3 of us sisters have loved being a part of our blog and appreciate our readers who comment and share with others some of the happy we have decided to post. Just in case you did not know, the word “kusi” (pronounced coo-see) means happy in Quechua, a language spoken by the natives who live in the Andean mountains. Here at The Kusi Life we love to share anything and everything that brings us and our families joy – from learning something new, cooking up delicious recipes, crafts, home decor, book reviews, acts of kindness and more! We also try to share different happy things throughout the week on our Instagram accounts so be sure to check us out! My account is @thekusilife, Meg is @meg_thekusilife and Elisa is @elisa.thekusilife. We love our community and love learning from and getting to know our readers!
