Top 10 Posts of 2016

2016 – What a year! After going through a rough divorce and moving multiple times in 2015, I was ready for 2016. Really ready. My house was finally renovated and I moved in beginning of May and a week later I was off to France for Heather Bullard’s The Academy and a romantic trip in Bordeaux and Paris.

With a new house and a fresh start, there was so much to share with you. And the ideas are still coming.

I almost felt I didn’t have enough time to share enough with you. My deadlines and tours were rolled out on my blog faster than I could think. 2017 is going to be a great year to settle in more, share more sources with you, more tours, before and afters and more creativity that I have overflowing (in my mind) at the moment.

Before we begin with my 2017 posts, let’s take a minute to review my Top 10 Posts of 2016 via Google Analytics.  These are a bit different than the Top 9 Posts I shared on Instagram.

Afterwards, be sure to visit my friends’ beautiful posts. We’re all sharing our Top 10 Posts today and our number 1 top post of the year you’ll see in the graphics below. Thank you, Cami from TIDBITS,  for inviting me and organizing this amazing group.
