A fashion post! Finally! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written one, and to be honest, I’ve missed them! Between some blogging obligations to brands and the craziness of all the fall and Christmas decor posts and hops, it was difficult to fit them in. But today I wanted to talk about a wardrobe staple that I absolutely love: the plaid blazer! I’m a blazer lover in general (as anyone who knows you will tell you!) and the classic plaid or checked blazer is one that I turn to again and again.

A few weeks ago I got an email inviting me (along with several other bloggers) on a private tour of the HGTV® Dream Home 2018 in Gig Harbor, Washington. And let me tell you, that was an email I did not ignore! I had to actually read it twice before I could even believe it was real! I am so honored to have been chosen and given this amazing opportunity. This is the kind of thing every blogger dreams of, and it was truly a dream experience!
Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, and I also hope you’ve had a chance to do some relaxing and unwinding after the busyness of the season.
As each year comes to a close, I usually take this last week to relax and recharge. And also, to take stock. One of the things I like most about blogging is the fact that everything is documented; it’s fun to go back and look at what I was doing, interested in, and talking about during the different points of the year. And, I love seeing how each post has done. It’s sometimes surprising to see what post did the best, and what people responded to the most (and those two are not necessarily the same!)
I’ve been so excited to share this tour with you as it’s like nothing I’ve done before. I’m always sharing my house during the day, but today’s tour is all about the magic of Christmas nights! My sweet friend Rachel of the gorgeous blog Maison de Pax put this tour together, and I just think it’s such a creative idea. I love seeing all the houses at night – there is truly something magical about the twinkle lights of the tree and the glow of a roaring fire.
Obviously if you’ve been a reader for awhile now, you know that I love neutral Christmas decor. You can read here about when I first was falling love with a neutral Christmas palette. Well, it turns out, I’m more in love with it than ever!
Hi everyone! I’m joining some blogging friends today for a small blog hop sharing Christmas inspiration. I actually intended to share my Christmas entryway as part of my Front Porch Tour last week, but I hadn’t finished the garland and just couldn’t swing it that early. Then I had several cloudy days which made taking pictures impossible, so it just worked out to share it now.
