The Best of 2019 and Whats to Come This Year

Well, its safe to say that 2019 is in our rear view mirror now. I cant believe we are heading into 2020.  There are so many things I am grateful for that took place in 2019.  So many memories with my family.  We took some amazing trips this year with our kids, including our first ever Disney cruise.  It was amazing.   With all the memories we made, there was a lot of growth here on Twelve On Main.  Not only the blog, but in our home, and in our backyard.  And even though the end of the year ended on a bit of a frustrating note, with my Instagram being hacked, I am incredibly grateful to my readers and followers for encouraging and lifting me up when I was down.

2019 proved to be a year of growth for us here at home.  I have been, and honestly still am quite the city girl at heart.  But,  finding myself living in a small town with so many unique challenges, I feel like I have finally found my balance.  

I did not think last January that I today I would have goats and chickens added to our little slice of heaven.  I never would have thought that we would have spent a ton of time building the most amazing chicken coop and a goat house!  And not just any plain Jane goat house, but of course, one fit for the goats and approved by me.

I never thought we would revamp our kids tree house and turn it into a stylish and inviting space for kids and adults.

How in the world did I fit in a patio makeover as well?   Gosh, we were on a roll during the summer.  Sadly this crazy ride did throw our camping schedule off a bit.  But, we are determined to make up for it this year!

Something I started this year in the blog was adding recipes!  I was always afraid to add recipes because I didn’t feel like I was qualified enough. But, I decided I wanted to do it for myself, and to push myself outside my comfort zone once again!  

So, as I look back and see what I have accomplished here this year, I felt like I needed to share the wins and I thought it would be fun to share my most popular posts this year of all time, going back to some of my old posts that still are quite popular.  I also want to share my most popular post that were shared just this year.  Its pretty crazy that I can find this information out and share it with you!

Here are my most popular posts of all time!  These are still the ones that get the most action and comments.  People really seem to relate and be interested in them.

First I will be starting up my Youtube account.  Well, I actually already started it, but I will be hopefully sharing one video a week, in a vlog type format.  Something fun that follows our families crazy days, full of projects, traveling, farming, and gardening.  I hope you will follow along!

And second, I will be sharing more regarding my Instagram account hack.  As of today, I still do not have my account back and Instagram has done NOTHING to help me get it back!  I have still not heard from them AT ALL!  Its a joke.  

I have started a new Instagram account and would love it if you would give me a follow!  I am starting over from scratch!  This is not easy to do.
