best of 2015!

My friends- Happy New Year!

2015 was a good year.
Lots of change and redirection of energy which left this little blog of mine a bit neglected the latter half of the year.

2016 will bring continued house renovations to our new home- this has become quite the project and where most of my energy has been directed the past 6 month's // I'd love to know if any of you would be interested in us sharing our process + progress on the blog.

Between putting our old home on the market, selling it in one day and closing on a new home within the same month that needed some TLC and our personal touch you could say my focus has been anywhere but the blog. 

This new year will also introduce a partnership with NOW Foods which I am really excited for as they are a brand I stand behind 110% and will be a source of new inspiration for upcoming blog posts.

 I am also super excited to be working on another Photography Project with the Experiment in 2016 for an upcoming vegan cookbook.

2016 also marks the 6th Anniversary of SMBP and I couldn't be more appreciative of the friendships and opportunities that have been made through SMBP.

Here's to a happy, healthy, successful and productive 2016!

I leave you with with SMBP's Best of 2015 // there some good ones in here!
