fill it in!

First of all, let me say that if you haven't participated in Fill in the Blank Friday you are missing out! It is so much fun! I am always excited to see what the week's blanks are!

1.  I started my blog because   I wanted a place to share my thoughts, recipes, ideas, pictures, and etsy shop. I love reading blogs and thought it would be fun! 

2.   One thing I love seeing on other blogs   real life experiences and open-ness. Posts that tell the not-so-rosey side of the story...but aren't negative...just truthful. Those are the most encouraging ones for me.

3.  Something I love about blogging   connecting. I have just recently been able to connect with some other bloggers, and it is fantastic. I hope to continue to do so!

4. A favorite blog post of mine is probably  the one I posted on Wednesday because it is an expression of where I am...where we are as a family. Its honest.

5. Something my friends in real life know about me that I've never before mentioned on my blog is   ??? honestly I'm drawing a big blank on this one...maybe I will come back to it.

6.  My new favorite blogs to read are  not necessarily new. I love A Holy Experience (mostly because I love her book)! SimpleMom is another fav--love her book too! There are loads of others that I on leroy, the pleated poppy, callgirl designs (that's my sister). 

7.  Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are   sharing too much personal stuff. Is that bad? Or good? I'm not sure yet. I don't want to make my life seem perfect, but I don't want to be negative either. Hmm...something to consider.



  1. I think it's good to keep things in the 'private'. It's your blog, you choose to share what you want and you also know the backlash it can have to expose so much info...
    And for some reason, our most honest posts turn out to be our favorites!

  2. Hi! I found you at follow friday. I have never seen fill in the blank friday...SO COOL! I absolutely love the colors of your blog and your header. It rocks. From looking around I think we would for sure be friends in real life :) New Follower.

  3. Hi there! Also found you through #FF on Hollie's blog ... am a new follower.

    I love the idea of a Fillin the blank Friday. Might have to give that one a go!:)

    1. I just try to find the balance by being absolutely honest on my blog - I don't giveaway personal information (like my address) but I try to be raw and real. You'll find that balance!

      Stopping by from Lauren's blog! :)

  4. I love your answers to these! The personal posts are often my favorite too, though I've been known to be a little too scared to over share on my blog. Any time I have, however, I've found nothing but encouragement and support. It's just one of the many amazings things about blogging :)

    Visiting from #FF. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
