I had absolutely no intention of blogging over the holiday break.. but I couldn’t help but share some amazing projects and accomplishments from 2018 over here at Mint Candy Designs!
First.. I hit 20K followers.. thats TWENTY thousand of you amazing people supporting me in this little journey that started off when we purchased our house in 2015. A little back story – I started this instagram account after we moved into our first home to get some decor inspo.. I soon after started a blog in 2017 to document some of the projects and ramblings I had to say (because lets be honest, captions on IG don’t do it justice!).
Second, I defended my Phd! That is truly the biggest accomplishment for me, personally. I have been slugging away at this monstrous degree since 2014. I will explain what exactly my degree entails in another post, but basically it is ALOT. So here I am, defended, and finishing the LAST requirement to become a clinical psychologist.
Third, in April, we went on a trip of a lifetime to Italy. You can still see some of the stories I shared from there in my Instagram Story highlights. We travelled to Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano all in tow with a two year old for a journey of a life time! It was such a great travelling experience and I shared some of my favourite travel tips with a toddler HERE.
Last, my husband and I completed some awesome DIY’s! I have rounded up my favourites for you guys to click through, because you LOVE the DIYs that I do. That is a goal of mine, to bring you some more DIY’s in 2019 along with other fun and educational content. Stay tuned for that! For now, here is a recap of my favourite !
There you have it! If you are ever curious about my DIY’s – go to the “Home” Tab at the top, and click DIY. All of them are stored there for you!
I hope you had a wonderful 2018 and are blessed with health, joy and happiness in the new year.
I can’t wait to bring you some more amazing content this new year and hope you will stick around to enjoy it!
