1) Cedars and Tiny Flowers.
I may be a little bias here because Katrina and I are buddies here in the Bend, but I truly do love her blog. She is so sweet and so genuine, both in real life and on her blog, and I love reading everything she writes. She is a master at penning a birth story and she so much more adequately and frequently photographs the splendor of the beautiful campus we live right next to. Also her boys are capital A Adorable.
2) Early Bird and Night Owl.
Jessie is hilarious, I am pretty sure if I lived closer to her I would be a weird stalker type friend who calls her too much and is always asking her to have a Big Lebowski movie night again and again. She is a mom blogger of the highest caliber and so wonderfully captures the craziness and beauty of motherhood, always humorously and always honestly.
3) Good one God.
post about her 2-year-old shoveling bouillon cubes into her mouth thinking they are illicit chocolates left me in stitches. I just love it.
4) Living Little.
Again, perhaps I am playing the friend card, but I love reading Lauren's blog especially her day-in-the-life posts which are refreshingly real and always fun and her kids say super hilarious things too. She recently redesigned her blog and the look is one of my all time favorites ever, plus she ties in my favorite saint on a frequent basis, so she wins all around.
5) Mama Needs Coffee.
inspirational and the hilarious. Also, her birth stories are SO good. She is funny, real, down to earth, honest and smart. I lerve her.
6) Mama Know, Honeychild.
I think I have met Heather before, or we at least have some personal connections through family and friends, which gives me hope that one day we will indeed hang out in person. Her blog is the most unique thing and her cartoon illustrations are insanely hilarious while still managing to be encouraging and inspirational, a feat I have no idea how she accomplishes- she is one talented lady. While I feel sure everyone has already read and loves her blog, in the crazy case that you haven't: go there, read every single post and enjoy. I only wish she posted more so I could laugh more.
7) The Rhodes Log.
I know I've said it before, but I love Kate's blog. Every time she posts I hop there immediately because I always love it. She is honest and funny (are we seeing a trend here? yes, yes we are) and is also kind of an idol for me in the healthy eating arena. Between her engagement story and her birth stories, I might as well own her blog in book form because I have enjoyed many a comfy couch sit reading her blog.
And so that's it, a little list for your reading enjoyment.
