CURRENTLY Loving || Your 2017 Blog Favorites

Monday, December 18, 2017




Can you believe we are officially wrapping up 2017?! 
I feel like we were JUST kicking off January 1st + now I'm here well into December, typing my final blog post of the year. I will say 2017 was a year of d i s c o v e r y for me. Figuring out where my voice fits in this tiny corner of the internet, validating that I'm not crazy to peace out my job {in April} to pursue content creation + style consulting full time, + seeing it all shift/take shape with my rebrand in August. Of course, none of that would even be possible without YOU taking the time read every Instagram post, watch every IG story, + subscribe to #currentlykherington. Today's blog post is a recap of everything you loved on the blog in 2017. If you've been here the entire time, this will be our trip down memory lane together. If you are new to this space, maybe you will discover something about me that you never knew before. {I know I sure have this year!}

Mommin' Aint Easy || 10 Things Motherhood Has Taught Me
Surprisingly, I had been holding on to this post since September of 2016, but the timing never felt right. This was one of my first posts of 2017 + the first time I truly opened up about #momlife. I am so happy that I decided to be vulnerable for that moment because the LOVE I received from all of you was o v e r w h e l m i n g ! I didn't know how many of you understood me. + even if you didn't have kids, I still received so many DM's about how you appreciated my honest perspective.

High Shine, Winter Blues || Five Ways to Deal With the Winter Blues
This is one of my personal favorite blog posts visually + content wise. {My #instagramhusband shot this look for me, in 29 degree weather, above a river!} I frequently talk about how winter is my least favorite season + a lot of that feeling stems from the seasonal depression that *unfortunately* comes with it. Even though winter blues are real, there are ways to combat those feelings in a positive way.

CURRENTLY Socializing || Cloth + Cabin Launch Party
One thing I love {+ apparently you guys do to} is when I'm able to SOCIALIZE! As a blogger, I love attending events + connecting with other creatives, especially locally. Cloth + Cabin is a new local lifestyle brand {clothing + home decor} that I fell in love with this year {Amy/Meredith are my bff's in my head + they launched the same time I relaunched}. You guys enjoyed the behind the scenes look at their launch party so much that it is my most popular blog post of 2017!
