2018 Goals

Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018.

While 2017 was a fairly good year (my husband and I bought our first home together and moved), there was so much that I didn't do that I really wanted to.

Best of Peaches & Willow 2017

As the end of the year approaches my mind is in full on planning and goal setting for the year ahead mode. I'm taking part in two goal setting challenges and planning away in my two, yes! two planners; more on that in another post. One of my big goals this year is to really focus on analytics in order to make my blog and social media platforms grow organically so I thought a fun way for me to look back on Peaches and Willow this year is with a post all about the Best of 2017.

I want to highlight the posts that did best, as far as page views and interactions go so i'm going to share the post for each month with the highest page views. I had no idea how looking back at those numbers would invigorate me and light my soul on fire. Now i'm ready to chase 2018 with such passion and make my page views and interactions even higher than they were this year. I hope that this inspires you to look back at your year and sparks the same passion and drive in you as it has me.

Christmas Shop Small {DoTerra}

Hi Friends. I think today is the last of my Shop Small features. It's been so fun highlighting these wonderful ladies and their small businesses and getting to know more about them. It's amazing to me how small businesses are easily over looked but they truly are the backbone of our economy and communities. I am obsessed with small businesses and have a passion for helping them grow, in case you couldn't already tell.

I saved one of my favorite small businesses for last because it's something that i'm passionate about and as we're in the midst of the holiday season, it's something we really should be focused more on because, after all, essential oils are far more useful than we may think. Essentials oils are very beneficial to our health so get cozy with me while we talk to my friend, Melanie all about DoTerra.

Christmas Shop Small {Dot Dot Smile}

Hi Friends! Can you believe Christmas is only two weeks away? If you are anything like me then you're rushing to get everything done last minute. If you've got cute little girls to dress for all the holiday parties coming up then you're going to love today's shop small feature because it's my personal friend from high school, Karen and her friend, Brittney. They both have adorable little girls who love to get dolled up in these twirly dresses. So grab a cup of coffee and get ready to dance and twirl your way into the most beautiful, twirly, girly dresses for your mini me's.

Blogger Techie Gifts

Hi Loves! Happy December. Can you believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away? Cue all the happy squeals because I am in full Christmas mode and loving every second of it. The blogger world is all a buzz with gift guides that I am enjoying to the fullest but there aren't many guides for the bloggers and techies out there so I thought it would be fun to create a gift guide for all of us. This one was really hard to narrow down to a few things because there's always so much bloggers need to write and create but here are a few things that would make my blog lovin' heart happy. There was one other thing that I would add to this list and it would be a chatbook of all my Instagram pics from the year. Check out chatbooks.com to see all the fun, customizable book of memories from the year.

I hope all my lovely blogging tribe finds something on this guide to snag for yourselves.

Christmas Shop Small {Monat}

Hi Friends! The countdown to Christmas is officially on and if you are anything like me you are still pondering what to buy some people. That's why I'm running this Christmas Shop Small feature every week. When you support a small business you're supporting a family and what better way to shop this Christmas?

Today i'm featuring a sweet lady that I've met through blogging. She's a wife, a mom, a blogger, and she sells Monat. So get cozy and read all about what inspired her to become a sales lady for Monat.

Cozy Gift Guide

Hi Friends! Are y'all in full on Christmas mode yet? I surely am and loving every minute of it. I wish I could write gift guides all the time because they are the most fun to do. I hope you're enjoying them just as much as I am. Today's gift guide is all about all the cozy things. After Christmas, it seems like winter drags on and all I want to do is hibernate so here are some of my favorite things to do just that with because what's winter without pretty, comfy things? So get cozy and check out what's on my Cozy Gift Guide.

I hope a few of these fabulous things find their way to your list, too.
