2017 Top 10 Posts from Everything Pretty

Merry Christmas!  I hope that you are all enjoying your holiday and spending time with your loved ones.  We had a fairly low key Christmas, and I loved it.  I'm suffering from a bit of burn out and general stress due to overscheduling, so it was nice to just sit back and enjoy my family without worrying about life.  

I want to start out by thanking all of my readers.  Thank you for reading, commenting,  and sharing.  Without your support, I wouldn't be able to stay at home with my kids.  My regular readers know that I work from home because public school isn't an option for my family and because my son with autism has therapy three times a week.  Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  

2017 was a great year for Everything Pretty.  I worked with some new brands this year as well as some that I've worked with before.  

I wanted to work with Smucker's because they are located in the town next to me.  I have friends who work there, and they speak highly of the company.  They also give back to our small community, so I like to support them when I can.  

Most of their job opps don't fit the theme of my blog, but I did work with them on their Milo's Kitchen dog treats campaign.  I made a puzzle toy for Dolph to play with. Both of my dogs love the treats!

I love working with brands that I use and love.  This year, I did five posts in a series with Special K to promote their Own It campaign.  I really love the idea of that campaign, so I was glad to help promote it.  

I also signed a contract with Olay to work with them for a year.  I did the Olay 28-day challenge and had great results.  Check it out if you missed it before, and be sure to check back for more posts in 2018.  

Overall, it's been a very successful year.  I set goals in January to work in my photography and work on improving some things in my blog posts, like making them longer and working on getting ranked higher in search.  While there's always room for improvement, I think that my work has paid off and make this a successful year.

I may be taking the week off.  Honestly, I haven't decided yet.  As much as I love my job, I'm burnt out.  I might need a few more days off.  

Without further ado, here are my top 10 posts for 2017:
