A look back at my first year

It's hard to believe that I started this blog exactly a year ago today! I ask myself this question daily "where has the time gone"?

I began blogging a year ago because we had recently purchased our forever house and I wanted a way to document the journey of making a house our home. I never imagined it could be so much fun or so much work! I'm still amazed when I read your nice comments and think "wow someone out there likes what I'm doing". My blog might not be well known or have a ton of sponsors {or any}, but I don't mind I kinda love it just how it is. 

So in honor of my blogiversary I am going to share some of my favorites from the past year! 

One of my first projects was painting the stripe curtains for our family room. I actually love those curtains so much I plan on making another pair next week for a certain room in my house!

One of my favorite rooms in our home is my daughters room, if I were a little girl again I would want her room! We've made a few changes since I posted this and I'm hoping to share some updated photos with you soon.

Another early on project was decorating my children's bath room.

One of my all time favorite makeovers was my striped entry. The difference is amazing and I still love it today!

I also shared my favorite room in our previous home and why it was so special to me.

One of my favorite art projects was the domino art I made for our basement makeover.

I enjoy planning parties and shared my daughter's mad hatter tea party and my carnival ideas!

Honestly I could sit here all day because I've come to realize that almost all of my projects and makeovers are my favorite!

I want to thank all of you who have been reading my blog for a year or just a few days! You make blogging so much fun for me and I always look forward to hearing your responses to my makeovers and crazy ramblings {we've all had our share of those}. THANK YOU!

Have a fantastic weekend!
