The Best of ADL and My Favorite Things From 2015

Nob Hill Home Office | A Design Lifestyle - Jacqueline Palmer 4

Another year has come and gone, and I can’t believe how much has changed in my life in only 365 days. A year ago today, I was renaming and rebranding my blog, a side project for the weekends and holidays. If someone were to have told me then that in a year my blog would be profitable, and I would have a design business, I would have been in disbelief. I have learned so much this year and have accomplished so many goals in just a short amount of time, from owning my own business to traveling to a new country. To sum up the thrilling year of 2015, I have gathered “a few of my favorite things,” ADL’s most popular posts, and a few giveaways and freebies. 2015, you were quite the year, unpredictable, challenging, and rewarding! To another year!
