Reinvented Collection Best French Country Blog Posts 2016

Just like last year,
I’m fashionably late with sharing a look back at the

I’m okay with that.

So what if it’s two days into 2017 and I’m taking the time to

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.

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.

Just because so many others have been sharing

Hi Naomi, It’s my favorite too! That lawn post makes me laugh… how does a decor blogger have raging success with lawn care? Ha ha. Maybe it’s because I showed before and after and continue to do follow ups?! I did it that way so people can see it really does work.
