Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating the start of 2017!!  I have truly enjoyed the break.  My husband decided to take off the whole week in between Christmas and New Year, so I decided to leave my blogging until everyone was back to work and school too...which is today.  So before jumping into a bunch of new projects, I thought it would be fun to look back on my 2016 posts and share a few reader favorites.  So let's get to it...

January 2016

Last January started off a bit crazy as we sold our home and had to be out by December 28.  So we celebrated Christmas there and then quickly packed it up and moved into a rental.  It was such a crazy few months, but we survived and couldn't be happier with our decision.  You can read more about what started the move process here.

February 2016

A Super Bowl favorite are these Ham and Swiss Sweet Roll Sandwiches with Poppy Seed Glaze.

March 2016

For Spring Break we took a much need trip to Santa Fe for a little culture and skiing. 

April 2016

In April I joined several of my favorite bloggers for a One Room Spring Tour Hop and shared our outdoor space from our previous home.

May 2016

We moved into our new home!  This was the definitely the highlight of the year for us.  You can read about our roller coaster house hunt here.

June 2016

Not a lot happened in June, as we were just enjoying school being out and the start of summer break!  I did do a little baking and shared this Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe.

July 2016

It only took 3 months after we moved in, but in July I finally shared the BEFORE pictures of our new home.  It's amazing how much it's already changed in 8 months.

August 2016

Our last summer hurrah was our trip to 30A!  This was our third year to go and we just love it there.  It was a great way to end the summer.

September 2016

I finally got one room organized and photographed.  Our study/piano room.

October 2016

I shared a mini Fall Home Tour.

November 2016

Our family room progress and my new Minted artwork.

December 2016

One of my favorite post of the year was my Christmas home tour!

Another project I also created for my blog in 2016 was The Style Market.  It's located on the top of my blog under the "SHOP" tab and it is my online home and fashion shop.  A place where you can shop the décor in my home and fashion from my closet, or items that are on my wishlist.  I hope it's helpful to you.  I know a lot of times I read blogs and find something I would like for my home and having the source is so helpful.

And that's a wrap on 2016!  Thanks so much for following along throughout the year.  We have lots of projects planned for our new home and I can't wait to share those with you all.
