a few of my favorite {blogs}

I love reading blogs. I love witty writing and gorgeous photos and sweet personal reflections. I love seeing real life homes and magazine-worthy homes and over-the-top party ideas.  I love how each blogger can make her space unique and infuse such personality into a virtual speck of zeros and ones that is the internet.

I often times find myself so intrigued by a blog and so inspired by ideas seen elsewhere that I have to consciously remind myself to step away from the computer.

I’m sure you all have a list of your favorite blogs, but today I thought I’d share a few of mine with you.  The keyword being few {my complete list would surely overwhelm you as I am adding to it every day!}

So here they are in no particular order {click on the image for links}:

See what I mean? And this is truly only a few!

I hope I’ve totally distracted you from your real responsibilities today :

    Your blog is definitely one of these fantastic places for me. I just discovered you, but am hooked already!

    You are SO right about finding yourself lost in blogs. I visit a few that you shared today and I’ll for sure check out the others. I’m new to your blog but I like it very much.

    What a great line-up – some of these are new to me, so thank you! Have you read Today’s Letters yet? I think you’d like it. :)

  23. Melanie August 31, 2010 at 4:23 pm #

    Thank you, thank you for including my blog on your faves list. I feel like a celeb in a good way not in a, “Oh my gosh US Weekly is reporting that we’re getting a divorce and my butt looks big,” kind of way.

    Hi! I don’t have a blog or website for that matter, I just love looking at decorating blogs and we have a few in common as our favorites. I just wanted to write to you about your post on Captivating. I love that book too! We have two boys and one little girl and I so relate to what you have gotten out of Stasi’s words! You have such a gift for decorating and I am inspired too by your love for the Lord! Thanks for your writing! :)

    Thanks for these great blog suggestions… :)
    I don’t know why, but I can’t get Lindsey’s blog at the Pleated Poppy to open for me. I know she changed her site address, but I’ve tried both the old & new versions, with no luck. Maybe my husband did something to my cookies…

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
