{at this moment: smiles and hugs}


You know when you're swimming along with your blog/creative endeavors - putting in the time and doing the hard work - and you suddenly wonder: Am I doing enough? Can I be doing more? Of course, you can always do more (patience, young Jedi) ... Just as you're pondering these things, someone comes along to reassure you (or, as I like to see it, the universe smiles down on you and gives you a hug). My smile came in the form of a wonderful write up by Raluca of What Would Gwyneth Do titled, 14 Mommy Blogs to Click on Now, as featured in The Chalkboard Mag. I was both honored and touched to be included amongst such an amazing group of women and blogs. Yes, the woman you may have seen doing the running man last week, that was me. Like woah! (Ok, I really can't do the running man.) As my son would say, "Thank you a million, bazillion. That's big." 

Has the universe smiled down on you lately? Whatever each of us has accomplished this week (yes, laundry counts!), let's all stand up right now and do a little victory dance for each other. Ah, that's a nice way to start the weekend. Make it great, my friends! Smiles and hugs.

pps~If you have three minutes, I think you might be inspired by this video that Tori shared - What would you do if money were no object?

  3. Congratulations on the mention! I loved that you were listed right there along with Cup of Jo, another blog I adore. Though I'm not a mommy, I love visiting both of your blogs because they're filled with inspiration and thought.

    And thank you for suggesting that we all celebrate our small victories of the week. You're so right -- sometimes they seem so small, but it's important to celebrate them anyway.

  10. Congrats, girl! So not surprised to see you were included on that list. You are my favorite type of mommy-blogger in that you've totally retained your own identity and you blog about so much more than diapers and daycare. Your blog is one of my favorites, and I'm so happy you're getting the recognition you deserve! 

    So glad laundry counts as an accomplishment! I kicked butt, if that's the case :) Have a great weekend, lovely! xo
