Collection of Top Recipes, Home Projects and Ideas on Satori Design for Living in 2020

Hello friends! I hope your Christmas celebration was joyful even if it looked a little different this year. Ours was pretty quiet, but the change allowed for new family activities that were so much fun. It’s hard to believe 2020 is almost over, isn’t it?! I’m sure most of you are glad to be leaving it behind. It’s been a challenging year for most of us to say the least. However, I have learned to embrace the simple moments. Whether we label a year as good or bad, I like to take the “what did I learn from it?” approach. I’m feeling optimistic as we head into 2021. What about you?

For now, and to close out the year, I thought it would be fun to take a look back and share the blog posts that got the most love and attention in 2020. I always find it so rewarding and insightful to see what resonates with you. Quite often, they end up being my favourites too. I had a renewed love of blogging this past year and I feel like it shone through.

Okay, let’s start this countdown! In reverse order…
