A Year In Review: Top 10 Posts of 2015

Hello friends!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog of mine! Since the beginning of autumn actually. I took a much needed break from blogging and committed more time to my sweet family that seems to be growing up so quickly right before my eyes!

As another year draws to a close (already!!!) I’ve been thinking of my blog and reflecting back on what we accomplished this past year. No, not everything got crossed off our to-do list, but I’m okay with that. I’m thankful for times that I was able to say no and spend time on the “more important” things calling my name. It’s been rewarding in countless ways and I’m so thankful I’ve taken this time to just focus on my family.


Nevertheless, we cranked out some good DIY projects and shared some fabulous recipes that we are so proud of… and that you guys loved! Below, I’m going to share a list of my 10 MOST loved projects!

 And just because you might need want one more delicious recipe in your life, here is another recipe that was very popular this year! My husband is the cinnamon bun maker in our home and these fluffy, melt in your mouth cinnamon buns will become a favorite in your home as well! He made these three times during the holidays… although one tray was for his co-workers!

    This is such an awesome list, Kendra! They’re my favorites too. I’m still not over those barn doors – totally gorgeous – and the hot glue gun holder is pure genius. I’m reading this book called “Best Yes” and it makes me think of you and how much you value your family. They will always treasure your love and devotion. Sending you hugs, CoCo
