Before I get into the true purpose of this post, I just want to mention that I recently went to the American Girl store for the first time! It was fantastic, and I took some pictures (which are kind of outdated now since the new releases), but I will post a few anyway. Also, I purchased two little things with the gift card I received from Jessica's photo contest! I will share what I got in a future post.
Anyways, as 2016 comes to a close, I thought I'd post some statistics/summary of my blogging year! This year, my blog received about 15,000 views, and gained 9 new followers. The most viewed post was Teddie's First Photo Shoot. Thank you so much!

Thank you to everyone who has commented on my blog! I love getting all of your wonderful comments :)
Now I will share my personal favorite posts from this year!
Remodel Photostory! This post was really exciting, because my dolls moved in to their own official space with bedrooms. I have had a lot of fun decorating and making each room unique to their personalities :)
Maggie Emelyn. This shoot was a lot of fun! Maggie is the Star Wars fan in the doll family :)
In April, I reached 2 years of blogging, so that was exciting! My doll family also welcomed Teddie!
Teddie by the Pool. I believe this was the second shoot I did with Teddie. I really like how it turned out :)
Playing in the Stream. I feel like this shoot was perfect for Maggie. She loves to play outside and do active things, so exploring a stream was great for her :)
Summer Evening. Beth had a lovely evening on the dock. And oops I only made 2 posts in July...
Ohana. The flowers blooming were a great backdrop!
Love is Marching. I had been planning this lyric shoot for a while, and was really happy when I finally had chance to do it!
Fallen Leaf. I always enjoy photographing Maggie :)
Teddie's Ramble. Fall was made for Teddie. Her hair matches all the fading leaves.
Happiness Is. This shoot was so fun. Possibly one of my most favorite ever.
I wish you a happy New Year! :D
PS I recently returned from Hawaii, and I took Phoebe along!! I took lots of photos and can't wait to post them!
