Just like last year,
I’m fashionably late with sharing a look back at the
best blog posts from the previous year, and you know what?
I’m okay with that.
So what if it’s two days into 2017 and I’m taking the time to
regroup, assess, and prioritize personal and blog goals for 2017!
The past five months have gone by so quickly that it’s time for a breather.
If you’re feeling the same way, welcome to the tribe!
We are slow and steady planners who like to have a well thought action plan.
Alrighty, lets have a look see at what 2016 brought to ya’ll.

Evidently, the Mini Spring Home Tour was quite the attraction!
I’m thinking it was all the beautiful fresh flowers that drew people in.

Who doesn’t love beautiful weddings?
Between the DIY wedding decor ideas and the stunning floral arrangements this one was a hit!

One of the things I haven’t talked about much is painting and wall finishes.
This is going to change in 2017!
I’m a certified pro faux finisher and painter.
There will be a lot more posts involving furniture and a new look for the kitchen cabinets.
I just announced in my newsletter that tips for
painting and proper prep before painting are headed your way this spring.
I’m excited to share this so it will take the
guess work out of figuring out of which Pin is accurate.
Must see to appreciate…

Pinners Love The Weed Killer Post the Most!

post that folks just can’t seem to stop visiting!

Sorry I can’t do it sooner. Alaska has long winters.
We don’t start to green up outside until ya’ll have blistering hot weather in the Lower 48.

When it came down to seasonal decor and holidays,
I was quite surprised to see how wildly popular
my fall home tour and Christmas home tour were.
These two posts had the most visitors of them all.
That tells me 2017 needs a few DIY posts for ya’ll to enjoy too!

“How do I love thee, let me count the ways!
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my soul can reach when feeling out of sight.”
Sonnet- Elizabeth Barett Browning
I still have all of the Christmas trees twinkling away
and am enjoying the extra light as we wait a while longer for
days full of sun to make their way back to us up here in the North Pole.
Click on French Blue Christmas.
Just follow the trail and you’ll easily get to all 4-parts of the holiday tours.
Just because so many others have been sharing
these types of posts for a week now, doesn’t mean it
dims your light or is a reason you should question yourself if you’re moving
a little slower paced and taking some time to just breath after the holidays.
Be encouraged, my friend!
I’m taking my sweet time getting there too.
More to come later on my word of the year and a few goals.
Next up is going to be a look at the all time best posts since I began this blog.
I wish you a Happy New Year!
Know that I value you and you are special to me.
