We’re racing towards the end of 2021, so it’s time for our annual Best of Both Worlds year in review episode! This year we decided to break it into two episodes. Part 1 discusses our “favorites” from the past year.
I have to admit that I am a bit of a slacker on the pop culture front. I did not watch any television other than Cocomelon and Blippi. Since I was focusing on reading War and Peace (slowly and methodically) I didn’t read too many contemporary books (though I did read and enjoy several books by podcast guests! Lots of shout outs in this episode.). I did not see any movies or, frankly, listen to much music. Sarah has recommendations on those fronts, though, so maybe in 2022 I will catch up on everything that is on her “Best of 2021 lists.”
However! If you are renovating a house, I have several “favorites” in the home decor categories. “Iceberg” is a lovely pale shade of blue paint that I chose for several bedrooms. “Navajo white” is a creamy warm neutral that works for kitchens and family rooms and other casual spaces. We chose “golden oak” for our hardwood floors. I like the Cambria countertops and chose “Ironsbridge” for the kitchen. I hope this version of a “Best of 2021 list” is useful to someone…
Next week we’ll be back with our personal highlights from 2021, so stay tuned for that!
