Day 10 Blog

10/365 - From There's Always Room for One More, I found Life with Ana Kate.   I stopped at Candace's blog because I could tell she is also doing a 365 project.  By stopping in, I found out she also appears to be a fan of one of my favorite sites ( .  Small world, huh?  Candace's blog started out documenting her adoption journey but has turned in a daily journal.   She appears to be a photography buff like me so there will be plenty of beautiful photos for you to look at.  Go stop by and say hi!

9/365 - From  The Way it is, I found There's Always Room for One More.  Denise's about me really says it all "single mother to 6 kids, cook, taxi driver, friend, merriment maker, lover of LOST, writer. You never know which one you'll run into."  Actually, there's so much more.  Her post today was about a giveaway and I almost skipped the blog over for another but decided to go a bit deeper.  I'm so glad I did.  I related to her experience with watching her husband die (the same thing happened with my mother when I was 22).  I related to her adoption story (my best friend was adopted and I am close friends with a couple who adopted from China);  I just related to her.  She recently finished a book (can't relate to that at all) and seems like an amazingly resilient and strong person.  Please read her blog, you'll be happy you did.

8/365 - From  Shut the Front Door, I found The Way it is.  Kristin is a stay at home mom to 4 (4!) boys.  I love the journalistic feel to her blog.  She pretty much writes about her day to day and is a very normal mom - I love it!  Her boys are amazingly adorable and I would stop by there just to see them, but her posts are interesting too!

7/365 - From  Screaming for Chocolate, I found Shut the Front Door.  I'm posting Denise's blog because she's recently returned to blogging and I wanted to help her a bit.  Please take a look at her speech, I think that's all you'll need to get an idea of her 'story'.  She has a 3 year old niece who really reminds me of my own daughter (I think they all have 'attitudes' hehehe).  I look forward to seeing her get back into blogging!

6/365 - From  Angry Chicken , I found Screaming for Chocolate.  I probably stopped here and decided to read because I'm one of millions who are on a weight loss kick in the new year and the 'chocolate' screamed at me.  I loved reading 'Coco's (not sure if that is her real name) About Me.  She's a mom and grandma (beautiful family!) and works from home.  I loved reading about her dogs and was saddened to see she'd recently lost a job.  

5/365 - From Stepping Off the Spaceship, I found Angry Chicken.  (How could I stop at any other blog?!)  This blog written by Amy is a fantastic place for anyone who aspires to be a better cook, sewer, parent, etc etc.  She's a creative genius!  Published author, college educated, fantastically creative, she's a lot of fun!  Her site made me hungry (lots of food photos) so I'm off to eat breakfast.  Please check her site out - she doesn't really need my help but I'm happy I found her!

4/365 - From Tact is for..., I found Stepping Off the Spaceship.  This blog written by Reiza immediately resonated with me partially due to the fact that she is a former military spouse.  One thing that struck me about her blog is the diversity in her posts.  It really has something for everyone!  Take a moment and check her out, if you haven't already!

3/365 - From the Blogging Mum,  I found Tact is for people who aren't witty enough to be sarcastic.  If you haven't stopped by this blog written by Heather, please go now.  It's hilarious!  This mom from Utah knows how to write like it's nobodies business.  Her last post has to do with snuggies, running shoes and earbuds.  How's that for variety??

2/365 - I just had to pick the Blogging Mum for day two.  She's someone.  I've known her for more than three years now and we've never met in person.  Melanie is a fantastic writer and photographer and her blog is often updated with posts of deep self discovery and or rediscovery.  We have children who are the same age and arguably the cutest (and most photographed) on the planet.

1/365 - Photography by Michelle Hires Stay at home mom and aspiring photographer.  My blog will be a mix of personal and professional posts until I figure things out some more.
