Another year breezed by – Lawd!  I put together one of these “best of” posts for the year 2014 here, and I had so much fun going through old posts that I knew I wanted to pull images for a 2015 roundup!

This year was definitely one of the most challenging professionally (more about that here), but looking back, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.  I learned a lot about myself – how I handle stress (including ways I can manage my stress better, shared here), how to work more efficiently and overall, how sometimes I have to slow down to feel my happiest.

Below are photos from some of my favorite posts – if it’s an outfit in can be found in the fashion category, decor can be found in home and food/drink in… food/drink]!

  1. Disclaimer, about to drop some serious sap. Love your blog. Love love love. Everything from the outfits you put together to your home, your marriage, your furry kiddos. Exceptional. Love that you have a body I can relate to. You are gorgeous & your confidence & upbeat attitude has had a big impact on how I carry myself. I love that you shared some of your personal struggles this year. BC let’s be honest, it’s great to see that you also have struggles. Ok, “great” isn’t the best word but it’s helpful to see a little BTS & not just the highlight reel. You’re a real person & you’re relatable that’s awesome! I also love that your snap is public. You & Mr. CBL are serious #relationshipgoals. Cheers to a fantastic 2016. Thanks for sharing your life.

    1. You have NO IDEA how much I appreciate your comment. Pictures are one thing – but they’re a highlight reel and I always want you guys to be able to relate to the content on this blog. THANK YOU for reading, THANK YOU for taking the time to share and thank you for your kind words. Happy NYE to you!!!

  2. Wow Courtney hit it on the head above! Of the bloggers I like to follow daily, you’re one of the most down to earth and your positivity and sense of humor always bring a smile! A favorite milestone of mine in 2015 was starting my own blog, after following yours and others and being so inspired by the life you lead. I’m so thankful for what blogging has brought to my own life and thankful to the women like you who I look up to and continue to be inspired by each day — thank you! Happy New Year and wishing you a fabulous 2016!

    1. Thank you so much Tristan! And CONGRATS on starting your own blog – I’m so honored to have been some inspiration to you. Here’s to a fab 2016! XO –

  3. Oh, the long pink dress! I had forgotten about it. LOVE love love! Cheers to 2016! I so enjoy this ray of positivity I get to read during my lunch break every day. 🙂

  4. As a college student halfway through my third year, I’ve learned the importance of patience. I’ve learned to let go of the things that weren’t meant for me, because when I let go of that and open my heart to new things, God will bring what He has purposed for me. I’ve learned to embrace where I am in my life, because life really is too short to not love it. I’ve learned to accept the truths about what God says about me, that I am fearfully and wonderfully made, rather than feeding into insecurity.
    A lot of these things are things I’ve taken away from reading your blog. I admire your honesty and transparency, and your fun, loving personality that comes across in everything you post. Thanks for sharing your life with us! Praying God blesses you and your family in this new year!
    P.S.–I’m also glad your snapchat is public, because it really is the BEST!

  5. Thank u so much for sharing ur blog with the world and bring so transparent. I know many feel blogs are supposed to be beautiful and show nothing but the happy times (or so I’ve read that some think that) but honestly it always makes me feel like your a bit more real when u show a bit of the bumps and let me relate in a different way. Your definitely my fave on snap and I always look forward to ur adorable personality! I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for you and the beautiful moments/outfits/travels you share with us all.

    1. You have no idea how much I appreciate this. I love reading blogs when I feel that the person writing it is more like a friend rather than a stranger. THANK YOU Trisha for following along and sharing this feedback! I hope to continue to share more glimpses into my personal life in the next year. Love to you and yours!
