Happy New Year!!! I started this blog right before we headed into 2017, and while I am still learning so much, it has been such an awesome experience! I love snapping photos, writing and interacting with you here and on Instagram, and cannot tell you how much it means to me that you take the time out of your busy schedule to read it! I know your time is precious!! It is always a little scary to put yourself and your ideas out there, but you all have been so incredibly kind and supportive, and it truly means the world to me! Thank you!!! If these posts give you ideas for entertaining, meals, ways to decorate your home, warm fuzzies about the value of family or just make you smile, then I feel like I have served you well!
Here are a few favorites from 2017:
