It was a great 2016. However, it did have it's moments (like every year does). Through it all though, I am choosing to look at the good things that happened. So today I'm popping in to highlight & look back at some things that happened on the blog this past year.
In January I made some goals for myself & our home. I plan to do the same this year. I'm still working away at the list, but I'll be sure to share & even go over some things from 2016 (things that happened/worked/didn't work).
Also, if you're looking for tips on having a productive week, I created this list. No doubt, I'll be revisiting this.
In February I really started collecting play room inspiration for E in hopes of creating a family/play space. While it didn't happen due to a move, I have been saving the ideas and trying to implement them where we're currently at. And after this past Christmas season with the extra toys we seem to have accumulated, I think I'm needing inspiration more than ever! #So.Many.Toys.
I still love this cozy den design I made.
In March I shared one simple (cost-effective) way you could give your home a pick-me-up.
We also prepped & made some decorations to celebrate E's 1st birthday! Simple is best.
I also shared the paint colours we used in our last house (I'll definitely use these colours again!) & the news that we'd be moving (again).
In May I made the easiest (and I do mean easiest) kitchen valence & shared what I learned about beating clutter in my home (I need to revisit this one, for sure!).
I also shared E's nursery reveal. It's probably my most favourite thing!
Our summer was pretty low key (especially around the blog) as we settled into living in limbo.
I did however get a few DIY projects finished (yay!) before the summer was over. Like this one & this one.
September was about comfort food, wardrobe staples & this DIY for E.
In October I shared one of my favourite weekly activities to do with E. Definitely looking forward to more of this this winter season. Oh & this soup. It will be made more this winter, for sure.
November & December were composed of getting ready for the holidays, and that included some simple decorating & DIY projects.
There's LOTS more that happened. Recipes, other little DIY projects, design ideas/boards & life updates. Be sure to check them all out in the archives (listed in the side bar). And you can check out projects HERE & designs HERE.
I'm so thankful for all of you that follow along with me. I'm looking forward to more blogging adventures & projects in 2017!
