2016 in Review

While some make resolutions, I use the first few days of a new year to look back at what worked (and what didn't) in the past 12 months. It was a pretty big year for us overall.  Let's take a trip back, shall we?

On the DIY/Design front, this was the year of the room makeover for me.

Starting with my brother's country cottage living room.  I just love how this turned out!

Moving to the NJ shore with our newly partitioned bunk room.  Why didn't we do this years ago??

A long overdue update in our guest bathroom.

A refresh in our backyard.  I can't wait for spring to get full use of the new potting bench as well.

The creation of an enchanting fire pit patio.

Aggie's big girl black and white bedroom as well as Oscar's sophisticated safari nursery.

And finally a basement ski lodge inspired family room for a friend.

Not bad - especially considering I was also making a baby while doing most of the above. ICYMI, meet Oscar.

We also did a bit of traveling including stops in Edinburgh, Copenhagen and London.

Oh and course we threw a few parties including Aggie's Paris Pretend Play 3rd birthday (we are gearing up for her 4th birthday party this weekend).

It's easy to get caught up in all that I didn't get done in 2016 but looking back on this list, I'm feeling pretty good.  How do you celebrate the year gone by?


  1. I would say that you spent your time well. Those are some major accomplishments. Well done!
