“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
Happy Thursday sweet friends! I hope your week has been going well so far. It continues to rain in my neck of the woods. It seems that we can’t get more than one day of sunshine before the skies open up with more rain! I have been organizing and cleaning after putting away all of the Christmas and spending a lot of time reading which is one of my favorite pleasures. Butch went back to work yesterday, so life is getting back to my usual routine. But my little princess won’t be back to stay with me until Monday when her mommy has to go back to teaching. And like a lot of folks, yesterday also began a healthier eating plan for us. Normally we try to eat healthy, but the holidays filled with sweets and carb overload wrecked our usual way of eating! We are ready for a little more discipline in that area! How about you, is healthier eating a part of your January plan?
Today, I am sharing the remainder of our top ten most viewed posts. On Tuesday, I shared our top five tablescapes which are all included in our top ten. At the bottom of this post you will see the complete list of all of them! Grab a cuppa and join me!
We have loved sharing our travels with you, but this past year we didn’t travel as much as past years. However, An Anniversary Getaway made our top ten!
If you are a regular follower, you know that I often share garden posts, tablescapes in the garden and shots of the garden for Simple + Southern Sunday make regular appearances! Your favorite was the Early Spring Garden!
I was beyond excited last year to be invited by Shirley from Housepitality Designs to join with her, Mary @ Home Is Where The Boat Is, and Lidy @ FrenchGardenHouse for Floral Friday! I must admit that I was way out of my comfort zone to partner with these extremely talented and creative ladies. But, it has been a great learning experience and it has made me strive to up my blogging game! You (my readers) have given me so much encouragement with each Floral Friday. In December, Floral Friday changed to Monday Morning Blooms and the very popular and talented Yvonne from StoneGable joined our group. I hope you will join us this coming Monday for the first Monday Morning Blooms of 2019!
I am so glad you chose Hydrangeas, Roses, and Strawberries as one of your favorites! It was a fun one to do.
Under The Rose Arbor was also a top pick by you. It gave me a chance to spotlight the Lady Banks Roses that bloom early and often get bit by a late frost. They were in perfect bloom for this Floral Friday!
Our Story, His Glory is our most viewed post for 2018. It was originally shared in three separate posts. There were so many comments and emails that we combined all three segments into one post that has been placed as a menu option on our home screen!
If you haven’t read the story, I hope that you will take the time to read it. Our prayer is that it will encourage you. If you are going through a particularly hard time, I pray that you will read or even reread it. Our purpose in starting this blog was to share God’s beauty and His love in not an overly preachy way but by our everyday living!
