Good Soil Blog’s Top 10 Posts of 2017

2017 has been nothing short of a whirlwind.  I got married, celebrated two friends’ engagements, went on a Caribbean honeymoon, lost several close family members, and helped my mom deal with the trials of a divorce.  There were many hard times, but there was also a lot of growth and amazing memories made.

This blog has served as a major creative outlet for me this year.  I wrote in my last post that I wouldn’t be back until after the new year, but I came across this post on Lauren Conrad’s site, which made me curious about this site.  I decided to go through this year’s content and figure out which posts you all loved/read the most.  I was a little surprised by some, and not so surprised by others.  So without further ado, here are the top 10 posts from 2017.

10. Book Review: Gone Girl
A short review of one of my favorite reads of the year.


9.  A Quick Chicken & Dumplings Recipe
A quick spin on one of my all time favorite meals.

A review of my favorite meal kit delivery service.

4.  Wedding Update, No. 2
The update where I announced our venue and a few other exciting things.


3.  Reading, Listening, Watching
A post on what I was currently (wait for it) reading, listening to, and watching.


2.  Beauty Review: Real Techniques Brush Cleaner & Cleansing Palette
A review on my favorite makeup brush cleaner.


1.  My First Blue Apron Experience (and how it compared to HelloFresh)
I was a little surprised this was my most popular post of the year because meal kit delivery services have been around for a while now.  Maybe because it was a comparison post between Blue Apron and HelloFresh?  Not sure, honestly.

It was so fun to write and put together each of these posts.  I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk down memory lane!  I would love to hear what you want to see from me in regards to posts in 2018.  Comment below with your suggestions or send me a message by going to the Contact page.  Have a Happy New Year!
