Top Posts of 2017

Today my friends, I am sharing with you the top posts of 2017.

The very top post has been read more times than all the others combined.

It is a true story about my daughter and I vacationing in Italy and getting kicked off a topless beach.  Yes, you read that right…

It was totally humiliating then – but hilarious now…

Put yourself in my beach chair – you are welcome!

My heart is full as we start 2018.

I am so grateful to have you on this journey.  As I look ahead to the new year there are so many exciting things happening that I can’t wait to share with you.

There will be some happy news…  like, we now have sheep… and our sheep will be having baby lambs this spring!

There will be confessions – like why after just 2 years we replaced the kitchen floor…  and how I wish I had picked a different countertop.

But for now – here are the remaining top posts for the year.

Grab a tissue for this next most popular post of 2017.

Most of us are aware of the poor in our inner cities.

This is the true story of the extreme poor hidden away in rural America.  It is raw and it is real.

The 3rd most popular post of the year shows the process of us designing our windows…  from pencil and paper to the magnificent views…
