Celebrating 100

 Today I am celebrating my 100th post!

Since I started this blog, I have learned a lot about the blogging world, met a lot of really great people, and received a lot of kind encouragement to keep up my blogging. I want you all to know that I really appreciate each and every one of your comments - they are the fuel to my blogging fire for sure.

In honor of my 100th post, I thought I'd do a little recap of my blogging adventure thus far.

Blogger told me that my top five most popular posts were:

Labor of Love: How we built our own farmhouse table. 
(This post also received a few features on other great blogs - thanks guys!)

Inspired by knack studios: How we redid our kitchen hutch.

You had me at hello: How to make a personalized wooden sign

Serendipitious: An fun, upcycled jewelry holder

Baby girl nursery mood board: A mood board creation for my bff's baby nursery
(if you like this, you're gonna love the finished product!)

I also shared some great recipes,

 some thriftiness

some diy ideas,

some craft projects, 

and some home decor inspiration.

I hope you've all enjoyed reading thus far - if you have any ideas or suggestions for stuff you'd like to see more of, please leave a comment and let me know!

In other exciting 100 news, I have a fun giveaway in the works for when we reach 100 followers - so spread the word! Love and thanks to all my loyal readers! :)
