A Year In Review ~ Some Highlights of 2014

I'm really excited about the coming new year and all that it will bring! HoweverI also really enjoy looking back and remembering some special things that happened during this past year. Here are a few of the highlights...

We kicked off 2014 by revealing our guest bathroom remodel. This was a really fun space to organize as well as make an inviting space for guests. It was quite the transformation!
From a mom's perspective some of my favorite organizing projects this past year were our backpack hangers...

homework station...

and our give, save, spend jars for the kids.

Some really fun projects of the year were creating a guest book & plank feature wall in the entry and living room.

Personally I've learned that decorating isn't always about simply choosing what looks nice. In fact, one of my favorite posts this past year was sharing about the living room rug that I didn't keep.

This was the year of learning about essential oils and beginning to share various ways our family enjoys using making lemon water, delicious!

It was a blessing to share with you some amazing adoption stories from some of our friends. Thank you Nate & Laura, Chris & Anna and Michael & Emily for sharing your stories with us! I also shared a little glimpse into what open adoption has been like for us and some thoughts on a conversation that happens a lot when I'm talking with others about adoption.

My only wish is that we could all sit down over coffee and chat about the highlights of your past year. Feel free to share some in the comment section, I would LOVE to hear what they were! As you look back and prepare to enter into this new year and new season may you truly know how treasured you are. Thank you friends for sharing this space on the web with is a special place indeed!


  1. Happy New Year to you and yours, and may 2015 bring many more awesome things!!
