Good-bye 2015, Bring On 2016

Well, here we sit on the cusp once again.  The last day of 2015, the eve of a New Year….  And what a year it’s been!

Looking back over 2015 here at Farm Fresh, it has been amazing!  It is exciting to watch my corner of the world grow and expand through Social Media online and by word of mouth here in the real world.  I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and for that I am so thankful!  It has been so much fun working with my clients, making their space their own, sourcing the perfect pieces to make their house a home!

I love that Instagram has the #2015bestnine which pulls your top photos from the year.  Here’s mine:

I love it – a stunning East Coast sunset, my little trick-or-treaters, the ice snowman from Winter Chill, our pretty Nordic tree, the stonewall in Dad’s barn, the lilac bush shot from the upstairs window, the same lilac bush covered in snow, the little folded star {that never did appear on the tree} and a selfie….

The top blog posts from the past year are:

5th  – A Beautiful View

4th – Touring with your Bestie

3rd – Bench Makeover

2nd – Farewell Fleur

1st – You Are Enough

I love that the best post of the year is the guest post Catherine wrote.  She said what so many of us had to hear.  So many people read that one, shared it and I hope really listened to it.  I hope that we are more accepting of ourselves and where we are in life right now because of that post.

I’m very excited to play the part of Design Consultant in the new ‘At Home on the North Shore’ magazine that came out this fall.  A great opportunity, to be sure, so much fun, meeting so many interesting new people and working with some great, talented folks, too.  Work on the next issue is under way already!  Here’s the cover photo from the first issue, such an vibrant family who lives in this modern home and workshop!

At Home

I hit a milestone this past year, too.  And had a big party to celebrate!  I was surrounded by family and friends and had so much fun.  You should always wake up with sore stomach muscles from laughing so hard when you turn 40! Scrolling through the camera roll on the all the phones is good for a laugh, too….way too much stealing phones and taking selfies…..but so much fun! Here’s my fav from the night!!

turning 40

I’m looking forward to what 2016 is going to bring!  I hope it is filled with new projects, new clients and new ideas! I’ll take some adventures, too….maybe a trip?  On a plane?  Who knows!!! There will be roadtrips, for sure!  One soon to Cape Breton…I feel the urge to go!

Happy New Year to you all!  May it bring loads of wonderful things your way!
