It’s New Year’s Eve 2014! Looking back at this year, I shared the Top Ten Posts of 2014 ~ 6-10 in part one and 1-5 in part two. Today I’m sharing the All Time Top Blog Posts from bluwaterlife! It’s a mix of drink, eat, journey and fun from past years. I’ve been writing on the blog since August 2009, and I will say my writing and photography have improved over time, so please don’t judge some of the “oldies” to harshly. It’s fun to see that some of the original posts are still the ones that get a lot of views ~ y’all do love a good drink! 🙂 So here we go back over the years !
No.5 is my Islamorada Welcome from June 2012! This is one of my favorite bluwatergetaway moments, and certainly one of my favorite photos. Bluwaterguy snapped this random shot while I was just just soaking in the island vibe. It has so many things I like ~ and adds to my hammock inspector creds! Truly life enjoyed ~~~
No.4 is a Chastain concert evening from July 2011. The genesis of our long running inside joke about brother/sister team Alfresco & Ambiance who work at Publix and help with all outdoor picnic events. 🙂 The summer sangria has also been a long-time favorite ~~~
No.3 is another all time favorite journey ~ the famous swimming pigs of Staniel Cay in the Exuma Islands, Bahamas. I wrote this in September 2009 when the blog was brand new, and I knew it was a special memory I wanted to share ~~~
No.2 is from November 2011 and it’s ice cream ~ Jeni’s Pear and Riesling Sorbet actually ~ and y’all know how much I love ice cream! I think it should be its own food group. 🙂 My love affair with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream has spawned lots of posts ~ here’s the most recent one from June of this year. As a matter of fact we stopped by her Atlanta scoop shop just this Monday for treat. I know what I like ~~~
No.1 and the all time top post is, yes you guessed it, a drink! From February 2010, it’s my Tru Blu Painkiller! Y’all do love a good drink and this one consistently gets a lot views from Google and Pinterest. As much as I love the drink, I love the story even more. It’s a journey moment that is forever part of the life enjoyed bucket and still makes me laugh every time I hear Carolina beach music ~~~
So, the all time top posts are from 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 – with my travel bar from February 2013 and yes, the rum cake from September 2014 quickly working their way up the chart. (Thank you, Casey Kasem!) I started this blog to share fun things we are doing in the present and things we’ve enjoyed in the past. Looks like our bluwaterpals enjoy a lot of the same things ~ and that is a wonderful way to recap some of our life enjoyed. 🙂
I so appreciate you all being part of bluwaterlife ~ following along on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram ~ and most of all visiting, reading and commenting here on the blog. Without y’all I’m only talking to myself ~ and I do enough of that anyway! If there is something you’re interested in or just want to share, please let me know by comment or direct email. You can find lots of stuff by using the blog search feature or exploring the categories in the pilings too.
I’ve got a lot planned for 2015 ~ some spiffy updates to the blog, more bluwatergetaways, crafty projects and of course more cocktails! I’ll be back with a brand new post on Saturday and until then, Happy New Year and cheers to 2015!!
