DAILYLOOK REVIEW – I worked with Dailylook twice this year and you all loved seeing the great pieces they curated for me.
TO THE DAYCARE MOM – Oh what a special post this was. A bittersweet transition in our life that I think so many other moms could relate too.
OLD NAVY ROCKSTAR JEANS REVIEW – This blog post always gets views daily. Shocker but just goes to show that you all love review type posts and let’s be honest — who could resist budget friendly but cult favorite Rockstar jeans! If you love these jeans then check out this post for my newest addition of Old Navy Rockstar jeans.

38 THINGS ABOUT ME – This was a fun one to write but so hard! Not easy to come up with 38 things that are all that interesting haha. Gotta start thinking about this year’s birthday post. It’s coming up in a few weeks. EEK!

MY ROAD TO MOTHERHOOD – Aww how I love the photos in this post and getting vulnerable and telling you all about my road to becoming a mama!

THE BEST OF 2018 PERSONAL MOMENTS
Summer had her 6th birthday (blog post here).
She started kindergarten.
We took our first family vacation to Mexico.
I left a 15 year career and took a leap of faith to start blogging full time. Blog post here.
I attended my first NYFW. Blog post here.
I have formed new friendships both from blogging and outside of blogging. Erik and I have bonded to make HOLB into a business and something we can both be proud of. I know I sound like a broken record because I say it all the time but thank you all for following and for the support. I will continue to sound like a broken record when thanking you for the support because without it HOLB wouldn’t be what it is. I’m excited to bring great content to you all in 2019 and continue to grow this little blog of mine!
Cheers to 2019 friends!
