Happy New Year! 2016 was quite the year, wasn’t it? Records and barriers were broken in the Rio olympics and incredible scientific discoveries were made. On the other hand, we witnessed probably the strangest and most shocking presidential election ever and unfortunately lost far too many creative and influential artists.
On a more personal note, this blog went through significant changes as well. It all started with transferring 800 posts from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress. I’m so very thankful to have had a designer with plenty of experience to help make that process as easy as possible.
As the year went on, the content began to shift as well. If you look through some of my older archives, you’ll see plenty of ‘mom’ style and personal posts. But 2016 marked a return to basics for this blog. The goal of From Play Dates to Parties is not just to chronicle what goes on at our home, but to share what our family has learned along the way, and to inspire you to be more creative in your everyday life.
And even though I don’t expect to break any Olympic records in 2017, I hope to continue sharing recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks to make your life feel more like a daily celebration.
On that note, I want to hear from you. What do you want to see in 2017?
