Happy New Year, darlings!
We sure had fun this year, didn’t we? I’m excited to welcome 2015, as I’m sure you are, but before we fully step into the new year, I wanted to take a brief stroll down memory lane to review the top 10 most popular posts of 2014.
As always, I adore you. Thank you so much for reading. It’s so fun to think these posts are on a “top ten” list because actual humans read them, and liked them. That gets me every time.
Apparently, I’ve learned a lot in 30 years. In honor of my 30th birthday in January, I shared 30 of those things. But the real reason you’ll want to click on this post is to see the sequined dress with hot pink puffy sleeves I wore for my 4th grade school picture. HOTT.
I wrote this because I don’t like tips that take a long time or an extraneous amount of energy; quite honestly, that just doesn’t make me get up out of my chair. Apparently, you also like 5-minute fixes—and here are some of my favorite quick & easy ways to fix up your habitat.
I was a little surprised (but not that surprised) to learn that the tip that resonated most with people is to go to the bathroom, right now (not after one more email—NOW). Because no one wins when you hold it in.
Can I just tell you how stoked I was that you guys were stoked about this idea, too? It’s one of the biggest light-bulb moments I’ve ever had about my home, and it resonated with a lot of you, too.
The sad news is I got a different bedspread, because apparently my husband hates duvets with the fire of A THOUSAND SUNS. But my bedroom is looking very pretty! And I found the perfect wall sconces.
I seriously LOVE this one tip. It’s easy as hell, and makes you HAPPIER I swear.
This is a paradigm-shifting realization I had about cleaning, that has changed the chore ever since. (Don’t worry, though, I still make messes.)
OMG, why haven’t I made focaccia bread recently? Crime.
A few honorable mentions:
Here are a few more of my own favorite posts that didn’t quite make the top ten, but still deserve a little bit of spotlight. Because I love them, or because they changed me.
- 2014: The year of creating space (The experiment went AWESOME, and I’m publishing a book about it. Stay tuned.)
- This one time, at Pioneer Camp…
- The Ultimate [Anti] Packing List: how to remember everything without a list
- Bittersweet things.
- I’M SELF EMPLOYED! and other wonderful news
Okay! Now that you have enough reading material to keep you busy…I’ll be back next week with some awesome new posts.
Happy New Year everyone!
