Happy New Years Eve friends! We have had two full weeks of celebrations with our youngest son’s birthday, a Christmas Eve Reveillon party, Christmas, and a relaxing, joy filled visit with cousins.
As wonderful as holidays are, I’m feeling grateful to be back at home. I’m looking forward to getting back into the normal rhythm of our days.
Top 5 Posts in 2015
As 2015 closes, I wanted to share the top 5 blog posts from Setting My Intention. I am so thankful for the connections with readers and other bloggers that I’ve made in the past 10 months. It has been a true joy to write, share, commiserate, and encourage one another.
So, at #5, we have Meal Planning for Beginners. This was the first of 4 posts I wrote in August and September as I tried (once again) to develop the habit of meal planning. I’m happy to report that I’ve been meal planning ever since!
Coming in at #4 is our Basement Clutter Reveal. This is a post that shows the honest to goodness state of our area of shame before we began decluttering with gusto. Our hope was and is to encourage others that they are not alone in their physical/mental/emotional struggle to let go of “things.” This also chronicles my husband and I trying to negotiate and work together in the process. This is an ongoing series for 2016 – stay tuned!
Also in the Basement Series: Decluttering Momentum, Decluttering One Corner at a time, 3 Things NOT to say when Decluttering with your husband,
Coming in at #3 is Over 25 Experience and Clutter Free Christmas Gift Ideas. This is a recent post that has great ideas for any special occasion – birthdays, anniversaries, or gift ideas to say thank you.
Coming in at #2 is Editing our Clothes with the KonMari Method, Part 1. With all of the publicity about the KonMari Method, I’m sure you’ve read all about it – but in case you haven’t, this first post goes through the book’s recommended steps in detail.
You can find Part 2 here – where we actually go through the process with our own clothes!
And finally, the top post of 2015 was….How 5 Minutes a Day can be Life Changing. This seems particularly fitting as we enter 2016 because it’s a post about developing habits 5 minutes at a time. I share my story of taking small steps towards developing a morning routine and a fitness routine several years ago. Developing these habits, one a time, brought me to the place where I could begin decluttering regularly.
Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me! Happy New Year friends!
What has been something in your “Top 5” from 2015? I’d love to know!
