August In Review

Happy Labor Day Weekend to all of my US Readers! We are currently enjoying the holiday up at the family beach cabin. Nothing better than waking up to the view of the ocean and watching Miss E play on the beach. Are you doing anything fun for the long weekend?

I just want to say thank you to all of YOU, my lovely readers. August was a fabulous month for DDD, not only was my side table featured in Apartment Therapy, but DDD set a new record for monthly page views (by a long shot). Thanks for all of your comments and encouragement, it really does mean so much more than I can possibly describe.

I know it’s often hard to keep up with every post, so here is a quick recap of DDD’s top posts from August.
