Most Popular Posts from 2016


Happy New Year, friends!

2016 has been a very exciting and successful year for  From having our home tour featured in a national & local magazine, to working with top brands like Home Depot, I feel very blessed and honored.  I know it’s nearly impossible for you to read every post I write, so what I’ve done is gather all of my very best and most popular from 2016 into one short list: “Most Popular Posts from 2016”  so you don’t miss any of the “big ones”.  In addition, you’ll find many of my blog friend’s have also shared their best of 2016 and those are listed below mine.

I look forward to sharing 2 makeovers early on in 2017 that I am working on in our home right now including our laundry room and our living room.  I can’t wait for you to see my new gallery wall!

So for now…lets enjoy looking back at 2016, and I’ll meet you back here next year  😆
