Dwell Beautiful’s Top Blog Posts from 2014

Friends! It’s been a while. I bet you all have been busy with family, friends, events and traveling. The holidays always seem to do that to you! Hubby and I had a nice Christmas visiting his family and mine (luckily the farthest we had to drive was only about and hour and a half away!) and I’m super excited to start using my Silhouette Cameo that hubby so graciously bought for me! #craftingfo’days. The rest of holiday break has been filled with lots of new beginnings and firsts as well. Helped photograph a friend’s winter wedding on the 27th, had my 3 year old nephew, Lukas, sleepover at my house for the first time on the 28th, and on the 29th I got to meet my new baby nephew, Ethan! So much love and joy packed into such a short amount of time. I love it! And now I’m ready for a vacation. Hah. Which is exactly what I get to do – hubby and I are escaping to Maui starting tomorrow and kicking off the New Year right! So. Stoked.

To finish off 2014 and before I head off to the beach in 2015, I thought I would take a look back at this past year for Dwell Beautiful. I only started blogging at the end of April, and I have to say – you guys have made this journey so rewarding and amazing! I never thought I would come so far in such a short amount of time. Thank you for all the love, support, kind comments and shares. Knowing that there’s even a handful of people out there reading this little blog of mine make it all worthwhile! So thank you, my dear readers, thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙂

And without further ado, here are my most popular top blog posts from 2014. These are the posts that got the most views and shares.

I’ve had so much fun creating and writing these posts this past year, and I’m excited to ramp it up for next year as I come up on my one year bloggiversary in April. I can’t wait to share more DIY makeovers, craft tutorials, trends, challenges, printables and more as we move into 2015. Thanks for sticking with me and Happy New Year! 🙂
