It's the time of the year, as all bloggers know, to take a look back at what we've blogged about this last year; basically to do a little recap and review of 2016. I'm a little short on projects, room reveals, and DIY's. I didn't travel the world, go to enlightening blog conferences, or have a feature in one of my favorite decorating magazines. Those are all great things, but basically that hasn't been my year in 2016.
Valentine's Day Entry
In truth, I thought I might skip this little post, but as I considered this last year, I realized all those previously mentioned accomplishments don't usually happen to most people or even most bloggers. I've often felt like after almost 8 years, I really don't have much interesting left to share, at least not much exciting and noteworthy that's going on in my life right now.
I started looking back thru my photos for focus and inspiration, as I often do. I realized that it's not always the "big things" that we find compelling about a certain blog. All the exciting projects, accolades and notoriety are the icing on the cake, but it's the person behind the blog that we find we're drawn to.
So, here are some pics of life as it is;

And before you know it,
My Archive is on the sidebar.
You can find links to most posts there,
just click on the year and month and follow them through.
And on another very important note,
a new surgical heart procedure gave me a fresh start,
and a change of doctors started unraveling my health problems.
I put together a 4 part series on the steps I took:

Thank you All,
