I’ve been in a strange space lately or maybe for months. I haven’t written Funny or Silly in ages and sometimes I feel bad just writing through grief. Like maybe I’m selfish with this place and should be handing out laughter instead of tissues. But I think our Winter is finally ending or maybe I’m just getting used to the temperature of life this year.
Either way, I’m feeling so grateful to have somewhere to write through it all and people who read and listen and blanket me with comments of I’ve-been-there or I’m-here-for-you. Lately I’ve found myself inspired by quite a few blogs, some new to me, some who never cease to make me smile, think or step back and appreciate whatever season I’m in.
Here are a few of my favorites and when you are done falling in love with them, you can visit me at my new second home, SheKnows. (Can you believe it? I’m so excited to be writing over there.)
Armed Forces Day– From Mark at Our Simple Lives, honestly ONLY Mark could blog about his love of country and family and men in uniform all in one reverent yet hilarious post spilling over with gorgeous photography.
Who Are You?- Still Standing is a new online magazine for families who have experienced loss. This is an agonizingly beautiful post about infertility and loss and what binds all of us who have survived to see the other side.
So the first post that made me fall in love with this new (to me) blog is the perfectly written Baby, baby, number nine and then I visited again and read The Knot and now I won’t miss a post Gretchen writes.
What to say about this blog? I’m in love. Their family, their spirit, I feel like it’s my little find that no one else has discovered yet. Grab a tissue and read The first and then just spend sometime soaking up this family and their story.
Running the Naptime Gauntlet from Life on the Mama Track is written as only Natalie can, about the crazy balance of getting a baby to sleep when you have a toddler. I L-O-V-E this post because it reminds me of Sawyer’s babyhood and all I had to do to get that baby to sleep with a house full of Crazy.
Such the Spot is another new-to-me blog. I knew I found a place I would come back to after my first visit a week or so ago and her recent post On Being Done resonated with me. It’s a perfect description of that moment you know you are finished having babies.
Do you have any new favorite finds in the blogosphere or a post that has stuck with you? Would love for you to share…
