3/60 Happy Hour

So for anyone who has been clinging to my site, staring and waiting for my own personal photo challenge to continue, please hold. With really harsh sunlight, crazy dark cloud-covers, and dead batteries, luck hasn’t been on my side. I am still gung-ho about photographing life, but give me a few days to get into a pattern. Slow start.

On another note, I’m back in the blogging world! I can’t tear myself away from my computer (or phone depending where I am) because I finally have the time to obsess over my favorite people again.

My new favorite couple (& family) are Sherry and John from Young House Love. Apparently everyone reads their blog and no one ever told me to! Come on you guys. Im obsessed with their two fully renovated homes (they are on lucky number 3!), and their laid-back, super relaxed outlook on life. Its really refreshing. They make me want to run out and buy a house that needs lots of love. I also made sure to tell my best friend about it immediately. She has always been a crafty DIY-er and she fell in love with them too. (She also just bought a super cute little house with her new hubby that she wants to do a lot of work too.)

I am also still obsessed with A Beautiful Mess. (I also mentioned them here and here.) These girls are just so crafty and light-hearted, I want to be friends with them.

Its super rainy here today and I’ve been moving fairly slow. Im sifting through my closet trying to get rid of more and more clothes. This seems to be my new favorite hobby.. but the space never seems to get emptier! It feels so great and healthy to get rid of three or four bags of clothes though, especially when you can donate them or give them to friends.

What are you doing this weekend?

Blog love

I love bloggers. I feel a huge connection to them, like we all have similar traits that make us want to document our lives and share things with other people. We all share a bond and a community.

Blogging has become such a positive thing in my life too. I have found that bloggers are extremely supportive of each other, and of their readers. This makes me proud to be part of this community. I love coming to my blog to see that I’ve had new visitors every day and to learn that I’ve inspired someone, even if it is just to make a pizza or go to the store.

With all of that said, I wanted to share two blogs that I have grown to love over the past few weeks!

A Healthy Slice of Life – Brittany is a new mom with an awesome attitude. She shares recipes, daily happenings with her daughter, and healthy living tips. Its a cheerful, inspiring blog to visit.

A Beautiful Mess – Im sure a lot of you have heard of A Beautiful Mess. If you haven’t, you better get over there. I have followed Elsie and Emma on Instagram for a while now, and Im becoming completely, shamelessly addicted to their blog. They post multiple times a day about everything. DIY projects, recipes, design, weddings, restaurants, etc. The photos are fantastic and the DIY stuff that they do is awesome.

(These are just two of my favorites, but if you go to my Blogs I Read button, you will see other sites that I frequent on the daily!)

This past week was chock full and seemed to fly by. I spent the week working my butt off to get ready for Spring at work. Easter is right around the corner, and thats when the Spring-fever madness starts. People love plants…there is something therapeutic about planting a garden and nurturing it to its full potential.

Heres a little taste from my week:

I plan on going on a short hike today with a friend… to catch up on life and her new job, while breaking a little bit of a sweat. Happy Sunday, I hope you are all doing something relaxing and fun.

Has blogging affected your life in any way? Whether you are a reader or a blogger?
