I was initially planning on having a wrap-up for all of 2015 and the month of December. Then I became too tired and honestly a little apprehensive at the thought of recapping up an entire year. What a year it had been! For those of you who came along for the ride, I really appreciate it. Also, you were there. You know what happened. So here I begin with the intentions of merely writing a monthly summary post, but the uncertainty of what it will end up as.
Of course, December also meant that Christmas was afoot. I kicked off the month with a rustic candle tutorial. Next, I had a DIY for burlap tree ornaments. I also listed my five best holiday movies. Here were a couple of handmade gift ideas. Finally, this year’s card.
Speaking of gifts and good cheer, a giveaway was featured on the blog for the cutest teething/stroller toy. I just love mine to bits, and can’t wait until our baby gets to play with it!
I also dedicated a few posts to fashion. The first one was a look into our little one’s dresser. The second was my newest and most favourite clogs to date. Lastly, I had my dream Christmas outfit. That is, if I had loads of money and my old body back.
Ok, now for 2015.
My most popular post was undoubtedly when The Little Barn was featured on A Beautiful Mess. You can relive the video tour here. That post was viewed over 43,000 times.
Coming in third place is this explanation on propagating plant leaves. Although it has worked for other succulents, I still need to find a better method for Aloe Vera specifically. Any suggestions?
The most commented on post, and probably my most treasured event of the year (aside from the whole baby thing), was our trip to the States. In fact, I wrote about it half a dozen times! I also shared many photos and a video from our vacation. If only we had the time and resources to take similar road trips a couple of times a year.
In 2015 I had also left my job after four years, gotten pregnant, moved my store, moved our home, and a multitude of other events that impacted me in a huge way. It was a year unlike any other, as I’m sure 2016 will be.
