Best of Wit & Delight: 14 Contributor Articles on Home Design and Relationships


Photo by Madelynn (Furlong) Hudson

Five years into publishing Wit & Delight, I added our first contributing writer to the site. As the Wit & Delight platform and community grew, I also wanted to grow the number of voices who contributed to it. I knew other people experienced the world and processed emotions differently than I did, and it was important to me to provide a platform for other writers to share their stories. 

As I transition into a new season, one in which I won’t be publishing content full-time on Wit & Delight, I’m reflecting on all of the insightful, personal articles that have been published over the past fourteen years. Today I’m sharing the first of two posts highlighting some of the most-read contributor articles on Wit & Delight. This is only a selection of the hundreds of amazing articles that have been written by contributors over the years.

Today’s post features articles in two categories—home design and relationships—that resonated most with readers. I hope you enjoy revisiting them as much as I have.
