Welcome to Best of 2016: Recipes, Gardening & Seasonal Decor. Each year, when I look back at the posts that you visited the most, I’m never too surprised. We tend to like the same things, so my favorites are usually your favorites too.
I decided this was as good a time as any to try something new…so instead of including a string of photos to scroll through, I made videos. One video for each category. I have to admit they were a challenge and took some time, but I really enjoyed it and have learned so much already. I have a few goals for next year and one of them is to make more videos. It’s sort of hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but I really want to try this so I’m going for it. I’ll be back tomorrow with more on my thoughts about next year.
Now on to the videos. Listed below each video you will find the links to all the featured projects.

So…what did you think? Even though I’m not an adventurous person, I know I can’t stay in the same place, just treading water. None of us should. I’m going to try a few new things in the coming year so I hope you will come along for the ride. Nothing too wild you can be sure…but the videos are sort of my first try at diving into the deep end.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a few more thoughts on the new year and a fresh start.
