It was a big year for the Migonis family. Without a doubt the year was far more eventful than we even dreamed it would be because we moved…. and had no intention of moving last January. Like it never crossed our mind that we would actually move. And then we found the perfect house in a great neighborhood…. you can read the full story HERE. Many of my top posts this year are centered around the move because we had a lot of firsts and lasts going on this summer. Here we go!
Because of the big news my number one most popular post written in 2015 was our official good-bye to our home… the post that was so cathartic to write. I cried at the closing table and couldn’t even look at the new owners because I was so sad… and sad that I felt like we did a lot of things well and then because I wished we’d done some things better than we did (but when you DIY and you are learning as you go it’s not going to be perfect). If you look at any post today look at this one… it makes me so happy to see all the before and after pictures because even if it couldn’t have been done better over additional time we made it a happy home while we lived in it and renovated… with two small kids.
Going along with that theme another one of the most popular posts was introducing our current home, before we had done anything to it. I’m excited to say that our official before and in progress page for this home is now live HERE.
My seasonal tours are always popular each year, each one is linked below. I always look at these tours as a great time to see the progress of our home or how we’ve figured out how to put our own stamp on the space.
Our two part Christmas tours:
And completely off the Christmas theme another most popular post this year were the free watercolor phone and tablet backgrounds I made.
Another popular post was the free New England fall watercolor.
Some of my favorite, though not the most poplar of the year, posts were these:

My third installment in the “Getting it Cheaper” series: EBates (I’ve made close to $400 this year from it by doing nothing other than making purchases online and referring friends):
I’m partnering with some of my best blogging girl friends for their “Best of 2015” posts… I think you will love theirs as much as I do! 🙂
