Vashti cover

Newly joining us is…
The very wonderful Lisa from Chronically Content!
“I enjoy writing about my journey with Chronic Illness and how I have a desire to be content. It’s a challenge and I fail often, but turn to God’s Word for strength and encouragement. My life, like yours, is very busy. I’m a stay-at-home-mom who is homeschooling and trying to live a frugal lifestyle. Because of my health problems, this is very difficult. I’m sure I could learn many tips from you, so feel free to share.”

The very fabulous Dara from Not In Jersey!
“Dara is a mom of 3 kids who loves blogging about their adventures. She also loves reading, Disney, the show Scandal, traveling, and more!”

Natasha’s favorite came from Army Wife to Suburban Life with the post “A Few Things Worth Seeing“.
Saying, “This is a great post and so similar to my own thinking! It’s so true – when I first started blogging, I tried to copy what other, more successful bloggers were doing. When I found my own voice and my own style in blogging, I saw that I had more readers and they were more interested in my posts. And although I’m anxious to really start monetizing my blog, I want to focus on growing my blog and finding my niche first, then I believe that I will be more successful at monetizing. All around – a great post!”

Millie and Kristina’s favorite came from Honesty’s Protege with the post “My Life Book 2014“.
Saying, “I think this is a great idea – it can help you set goals, see how you have grown and encourage your personal growth!”

Mrs Tee’s favorite came from Pragmatic Mom with the post “Celebrating my Birthday with Random Acts of Kindness“.
Saying, “I feel that the thought of doing things for others on your birthday is one full of selflessness and definitely a large undertaking. I admired the uniqueness of the Acts as well as the willingness to complete the goal despite life’s delays (sickness).”

Sinea’s favorite came from Kids Fun 101 with the post “Snowmen made from Kid Thumbprints make Perfect Holiday Thank You Cards“.
Saying, “I loved the snowman thumbprint craft.”

Megan’s favorite came from Organizer By Day with the post “Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies“.
Saying, ” I love the addition of chocolate chips to a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie. Yum!”

And my fave came from Country Road Abode with the post “Fairy Gardens“.
“The hubby and I both fascinated by the thought of little fairy/elf gardens and doorways throughout our house. He has even talked about decorating one room in a medieval theme and include these types of things in the decor.”

Congratulations to all of you amazing and wonderful linkers! Don’t forget to grab and display our “Featured” badge!
