Today, I’m looking back at the Best of 2018: Home, Entertaining and Recipe posts on The Lush List.  I truly love creating this type of content and look forward to doing much more in 2019! It seems from the analytics you love these posts, too!  The big project I am working on will definitely incorporate more of home, entertaining and food inspiration.

I want to thank you once again for making 2018 a wonderful year for me and The Lush List.  It is because of you that I get to do this and I am truly grateful!  I posted all the Best of 2018: Style and Beauty on Tuesday in case you missed those posts.  The Best of Travel is coming next week for Wanderlust Wednesday.
