At times, when I write these monthly wrap-up posts, it feels as if I’m writing it from a third person perspective. So much takes place, which always varies greatly from the month before it, all while feeling like a lifetime ago. I always feel removed from the events after they occur. Does anyone else experience those same emotions when looking back on previous blog posts?

TheLittleBarn1Lastly, I showed you how to give the exterior of your home a facelift with Vintage Barn Lighting. I was also directed to some other great lighting companies in the comments section. Thank goodness for you, readers, and your input! I learn from you with each one of my posts.

Home Series 13Speaking of The Little Barn, I discussed the outcome of its beautiful Tongue and Groove Ceiling in this post. I had initially blogged about stain colours in December with Fifty Shades of Grey.

Home Series 3A few days ago, I not only published the first house in my Home series, but also gave an extensive house tour of The Little Barn!

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 9.04.21 AMWhile we’re on the Canadian train, I also enlisted your help in Choosing a National Bird for our great country! The comment section, again, was incredible! You guys were so helpful and informative. I loved it.

WIB 1-6I published two fashion posts. The first was what’s In The Store. The second was What I Bought.

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.05.25 PMFinally, last, but certainly not least, I revealed to you that we were going on an American Road Trip for 8 days. We are currently on this holiday, and as I write this (only one day prior to leaving), I hope that we are enjoying ourselves. This post has by far received the most comments to date! I got so much amazing feedback from you, and we are trying our best to see all of the sites that you mentioned. So thank you!

Have a wonderful week, friends!

  1. First, the barn looks pretty, one I’d consider a dream home. I know what you mean about feeling removed about some things. I get those moments too sometimes. Short do looks good on you by the way.
