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.
8. Podcasts I’m Loving
A post where I shared some of my favorite Podcasts. I’ve discovered several new ones since this post, so I’ll put together an updated post in 2018.
7. My First HelloFresh Experience
A review of my favorite meal kit delivery service.
6. Engagement Photos
A few of my favorite photos from our engagement session.
5. 7 Times You Should Never Wear Your Engagement Ring
Tips for preserving the life of your engagement ring.
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!
