What do you know, my top 9 posts from 2016 were all my house photos. Does that mean I have to build a new house next year to keep up my likes?!! I have loved all the feedback and shares of my house, it was worth all the effort to have it turn out so beautifully. And while I can’t promise a new house next year I will have some gorgeous photos of a job I’m working on at the moment plus lots of new shows to promote and undoubtedly some cute kid pics!
