2011: A Year in Review

2011 was a big year for me! Number one being I got married! Then I opened my etsy shop. And most recently I announced the opening of a brick and mortar shop I'll be a part of. With such a big year, I thought I'd share some of my top posts and projects, both my favorite and yours. So if you're new here, this is a great time to catch up on what's been happening at HCC during 2011! Here goes...


For the first half of 2011 I was living with my parents as I prepared for my wedding, so the posts were a little lackluster {kinda hard to write a home decor blog when you don't have a home to decorate!}

But I did makeover this little wood cabinet...


In February my friend and I threw a pretty sweet little Valentine's party for our girlfriends...

And I learned how to make the most gorgeous of all desserts, French Macarons...

And Matt stole my heart with his sweet gifts on Valentine's Day...


In March I created a banner for the desserts table for our wedding...


I shared a few details from our gray and white vintage-inspired wedding as they came together...

May & June

Not too much was happening here on the blog, but I did get hitched! {more photos to come, promise!}


We returned from our honeymoon and I began to decorate our first little place...


I shared the first look at our living room {it's already changed so much!}

And our bathroom tour turned out to be one of the most popular posts of the year


In September we installed shelving in our kitchen {still one of my favorite things about our house}

And what seems to be everyone's favorite room {based on comments/page views} our bedroom was revealed...


October saw the opening of my etsy shop, A Prairie Market

{vintage cake tin...sold}

As well as a Thanksgiving tablescape in anticipation of Matt and my first holiday season together


In November, my besties and I took a road trip together for girls' weekend and had a blast!

I also shared much of our Christmas decor


And here we are at December, where we toured our house decked out for the holidays...

And I shared how God has blessed us this year, plus announced the opening of a new shop where I'll be a vendor.

There you have it, 2011 in review. Probably the biggest year in my life so far. But the year you get married will always be very special, I'm sure : )

Thank you again for all your support, comments and friendship throughout my blogging journey! I would not be here without all of you, and I wish you the very best in 2012!

{live beautifully}

    Hi Courtney,
    What a wonderful look back on your amazing year!!
    Your home is so beautiful and so well put together for being a newlywed. When I was first married, my place was a hodge-podge of horrific hand me down furniture!! Oh the memories. :)
    I can't wait to hear more about your shop opening, and best of luck to you!
    Have a Happy New Year!!


Well hello there! You just made my day!
