It’s hard to believe that exactly one year ago I published my first blog post. After many a sleepless nights, I can truly say that writing a blog is a labor of love. But I wouldn’t change a thing about this past year! Sharing my design thoughts and advice with you every week (well almost every week) has been incredibly fun.
The best part about publishing a blog is that I continually learn more about you and myself! For instance, one thing I learned about myself this year is that I am not a DIY-er! In fact, while trying to repaint my desk, I disintegrated several heavy-duty gloves and ruined my garage floor to boot.
Since it’s our anniversary today, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane. I am giving you a rundown of the top 5 blogs that resonated with you this year.

Having overnight guests can really send the entire family into a frenzy. But let’s face it, being an overnight guest isn’t usually much fun either. That’s why in this post I show you how I always try to think ahead of things guests may forget, provide a home cooked meal and create a comfortable environment for my guests.

Prepping for the Fall Season
Your favorite blog post for the entire year was about prepping for the fall season. Switching up the colors in your home, adding some fall-inspired accessories and bringing the outdoors in were just some of the ways to usher the season in. The best part? Not only did I include tips for switching things up for the fall, but I even added a video that took me forever to do. Proof that videos work.
So happy anniversary! Thank you for joining me on this ride. You make every minute of it worth it!
