We are almost at the end of our top 10 lists of 2023.
And I just wanted to say I see you.
Every. Single. Day.
You show up.
You write the sweetest comments.
You keep my little corner of the internet afloat with your support and your encouragement and your celebration of all of life’s amazing moments.
And guess what?
2024 is going to be the BEST YEAR EVER.
I just know it.
But before we take the first step into 2024? Let’s take a look back at the year that was with the posts that you all loved the most.
Here are the top 10 blog posts of 2023.
10. The Best White Paint Colors Of 2023
If there’s one thing we can all agree on? You all love a paint color post.
Good think I speak paint.
I love talking about it and picking colors and finding paint colors I love and telling you all about it.
This was a post from the very beginning of the year and I love all these paint colors just as much now.
We had iron porch posts on the carport right off the back driveway.
I priced out removing them and it’s so expensive.
Then I came up with the idea of simply covering them instead of removing them.
It’s such a great solution and so cost-effective and I think you all agreed.
I was kind of surprised by this one.
I wrote it on a whim because I get so many questions about how I get things done and what do I do in a day as an online content creator so I wrote down what I do hour by hour.
And you are all about organizing and days and a little life.
You can see how I organize a day in my life here.
The only thing getting me through the sadness after Christmas?
Knowing that spring and yard sale season are just a couple of months away.
The amazing thing about yard saling?
The fact that hope springs eternal. There’s always the potential. Always the opportunity. Always the potential for something amazing to show up.
I know. I have been the luckiest duck in the world when it comes to yard sales.
6. How To Get Stains Out Of Slipcovers
These two sofas took a journey down to Waco at the twins’ apartments.
I love, love, love a white slipcover.
The slipcovers are sometimes a magnet for stains–especially at a college apartment.
Apparently, you all have stains, too, because this post was so popular.
Good thing I have a solution on how to get stains out of slipcovers.
5. My Favorite Bedding Combinations
I was so happy this post made the list.
This was the bedding challenge. I found all this amazing bedding that was so affordable and I created different combinations with it on my bed and then we all discussed which one was our favorite.
And because you all are amazing—you came up with even more combination ideas. The comments on this post are so sweet.
4. When Life Comes Full Circle
This moment was one of my favorites of the entire year.
This is the story of my full-circle moment in the year that was 2023.
3. Before and After House Tour
Here’s the story of the house I live in now.
Where we started. When we have gone and all the stories in between.
This was one of my favorite posts of the year and you all agreed with me.
2. And Right Before They Roll the Credits
If you have been reading the blog recently you may recognize this post.
It’s the story of a tiny house and the beauty of loving your home right where you are.
And one PS to this post?
I had the artist make houses for my siblings to match their houses, too.
1. Spring Living Room Refresh
The number one post of the year was actually on January 12 of this year.
All those months ago I asked for your help.
I had two rugs and I couldn’t decide (spoiler alert I ended up keeping both of them) and you all showed up (like you always do) and gave me your opinions.
Can I just tell you? Your opinions never get old. I treasure them. Each and every one.
So what do you think?
Were you surprised?
Is there another one you think should have made the list?
I’m just so happy that you were here for 2023.
Buckle up butter cup because 2024 is going to be EVEN BETTER. 🙂
