I've been seeing lots of "Top 10" posts all over blog-land, and I thought, "I should get in on this." So through the magic of statistics I discovered which ten posts all of you have read the most on my blog this year. I have to say, it was kind of interesting to see which posts caught your interest.
So here we go!

This was an exciting post for me. It was my first "Before & After" post, and it was one of my first moves towards making Jim's house feel like my home.

This was the post where I realized what my blog was all about, and it was the post where I announced my blog's name change. Small Moments has become a big part of my life, and I realize more and more how much small moments really mean.

Here was one of my most favorite posts about planning my wedding. I loved putting all the accessories together for the biggest day of my life, and I loved sharing it with all of you.

Boy that picture is small compared to the ones I took myself!!! LOL! This was the post about my engagement ring being sent away to be resized and a new diamond put in it. Boy that was a long ten days...
This was one of my favorite "Before & After" posts. I actually hate ceiling fans, but I was thrilled with the way this ceiling fan make-over turned out.
(We're half-way to Number 1!)

I shared my newest passion with you in this post, mixed-matched vintage china. I love it! Now, I really need to have a dinner party so I can show off these beauties!

This was a sentimental one. When the mother of the Marine who wrote this shared this letter with me, it brought tears to my eyes, and I immediately asked for permission to reprint it on my blog. Of course, now that I am a military wife, it chokes me up even more when I read it.
Ohhhh.... Yes! I love looking at pictures from our wedding day! I love the expression on Jim's face, and I am so happy that all of you made this one of your favorite posts.
Okay, the picture is blurry, but let's face it, the event that prompted the post was pretty exciting! It really was a defining moment of 2010 for me. It changed the whole direction of my life.
And Number 1:
(Drum roll, please!)

I have to say, I was surprised this was the most popular post. I expected one of my wedding posts would be most popular, but of course that's because they're the most popular posts to me. I don't know if it was the title or the post itself that made it so popular, but I guess it doesn't matter.
So that's it! The top ten posts from 2010. What do you think? Do you agree with the selections, or do you have another post you think should have made the list?
It was a great year! Here's to making 2011 even better!
