Hello, friends! Can you believe 2018 is coming to a close? This past year definitely went by quickly. It seems like I was just writing a year in review post not too long ago!

For me, the end of a year is all about reflection and making plans for what’s to come. So, today, I thought it would be fun to take a look back and share the blog posts that got the most love and attention in 2018. I always find it so interesting to see what resonates with you and, quite often, they end up being my favourites too.

Did one of your favourites make the list? I was happy to see all of my Outdoor Extravaganza projects at the top. I enjoy hosting that series each May and hope to do so again!

My most popular post of all time is still Beautiful Front Door Paint Colours, which doesn’t surprise me at all. I plan on writing another outdoor paint colour post in early spring, so look for that if you’re wanting to switch things up. Hopefully winter leaves us quickly!
