Best of Frolic! 2015

Thanks for reading Frolic! this year! Crazy to think I started this site nine years ago during Christmas break! What a fun journey and conversation it’s been. During my year of travels (which I concluded this year with a move to Lisbon), the site and other social media outlets provided the most amazing community on the road as I was able to meet a lot of you and find recommendations through locals. It also created a platform to share stories of and continue engaging with people I met offline while traveling.

Of course it was fantastic to have a visit back home with my friends and family this summer and to film our new flower class which launched this fall! In the coming year, I am excited to share more flower arranging tips on Frolic!, more home tours, styling ideas, recipes, sustainable fashion, travel tips, and garden inspiration on a daily basis. If there’s anything you’d like to see more of, just let me know. Thanks for reading Frolic! I am wishing you a happy, beautiful new year! And below, enjoy a round-up of some of our favorite posts this year.
