There are a few blogs that I keep up with frequently. All have a different kind of focus but all of them focus on things that I love. Blogs are my healthy obsession and quite honestly, when I am feeling like I want to binge, I will immerse myself in blogs and often times it helps to get me through my cravings. Weird for some, completely reasonable for me. I try and read as much as I can to make my mind work in a different way than always focusing on my corporate job. That, I might add is the terrible thing about having a company phone. Sometimes the whole email at your fingertips thing makes me want to scream, I digress.
One of the blogs that I love to completely indulge in, is called “The Queen Princess Says…”. Jodi is witty, fun, real AND a mermaid. Yep, truly. I know her personally and she tells shit like it is, whether or not you think you need to hear it, she tells you and at some point in every post, you will find yourself nodding your heard, crying and screaming “preach!” through your screen. It’s ok, don’t feel bad, I do it and it is completely normal. She is a writer, poet, college professor, mom, wife, spin instructor, AND mermaid (this was worth repeating)….the list will keep going. Read it, indulge yourself in it and when you figure out the words that I can’t express to you how amazing this blog is to me, you will thank me. I promise.
The second blog is a woman I met in an online weight loss group website called Calorie Counter. When I “met” her, she was losing weight to get married to her love, worked at a law firm and had similar struggles like many of the other women in my group when it came to losing weight. Through this process, she expressed that she wanted to start a photography business, trying to figure it out and planning a wedding was challenging. Now, some years later, she is married, has a photography business and has two BEAUTIFUL children. Her blog is so sweet, kind, loving and really takes you into her family and allows you to see how beautiful having children can be. Attached to it is her photography blog which I thoroughly enjoying looking at her art work. She truly is beautiful. Laura Kelly and "We are the Kelly Family" blog is simply amazing and she is from Canada, so that is pretty rad.
The third blog that I love to read is called" Binks and the Bad Housewife ." I honestly can’t remember for the life of me where I found her at, but I am glad I did! She is also a Michigander, from down state and she is a farm wife! She also owns a business with vintage things that I have now put on my Michigan bucket list. Her blog is quirky and fun. The adventures she takes you on and the invitations she extends to peek inside her home, fashion, and everyday life makes me happy inside. Maybe it is still the country girl in me or maybe it is the freshness of a modern woman still enjoying country air that makes me love reading her almost daily.
These three woman are the best coffee break in my day and allow me to experience, learn and grow within myself in so many different ways. I highly encourage everyone to check them out and let me know your thoughts.
