Today I’m sharing my top ten posts of 2019!

To celebrate my blog anniversary, I thought it would be fun to share my top ten posts from 2019, starting with number 10 and ending with my most popular blog post from 2019!

I can’t even believe it, but in January of 2020 I will have been blogging for exactly 3 years! Goodness gracious…there is so much I could say about the past three years of blogging, but more than anything I want to thank YOU – my readers – for following along as I share about this fun passion that God has given me for all things home.

It truly means SO MUCH when you visit my blog, read my posts, pin my images, and comment with so much kindness and love. It is SO encouraging and it’s your support that makes me want to continue to share. So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

I’m sharing my top ten posts today along with some very talented friends that I’ll link to at the end…be sure to check out their beautiful blogs as well!
