Top Posts for 2016

My home

Oh my I can't believe another year has passed already! I am heading toward year three for blogging. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy it but there are some days that I do want to quit.

It can be a lot of work coming up with new posts three times a week! But I know what it is like to have a favorite blogger or Youtuber quit on you. You feel lost for a while because you enjoy the inspiration that they provide every week.

I am not saying that I am the best but I know that I have a least one follower who enjoys my posts (I hope)......     :)

Now here are the top posts or top viewed entries for 2016. I hope to bring more inspiration this year and I hope that I am continually inspired from you as well. Thank you!!!

  1. Hi Mrs Shockey! I am certainly one of your faithful followers and I love each post. I am sure you have many more followers as well. I only found your blog a couple of months ago so I am still trying to read all of the past posts.

    1. Thank you Debbie! I appreciate it! By the way how did you find the blog? I am always interested in how people find me.

  2. Wonderful inspiration this year and as a North Carolinian I love seeing the Biltmore posts! Wishing you all the best in 2017!!

    1. Thank you! That is a huge compliment coming from a designer. Thank you for making the time to stop by!

  3. Hi Mrs Shockley. I've been trying to remember how I found your blog but I cannot remember. There must have been a link on another one that led to yours. That is usually how I come across things. I'm glad I found it!

    1. Thank you Debbie! I really appreciate the support!
