Kelle Hampton

I first read Kelle Hampton’s blog after a favorite blog of mine, Dig This Chick, mentioned well wishes for the birth of Kelle’s second child. I’ve loved reading Kelle’s blog because she offers a lovely, slow-it-down and savor the moment perspective that I enjoy. Kelle shares beautiful photos and perspectives from her motherhood journey in sunny Florida.

If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.

Fresh Nest Design

Confession time. It took me a good 6 years before my house looked “put together”. Perhaps it wouldn’t have taken so long if I’d been a design blog devotee back then. Now, thanks to great design blogs like Fresh Nest, I no longer look at an empty room and hear crickets. Fresh Nest is one to bookmark along side your other favorite design blogs and visit often - you won’t see the same thing twice.

Weekly Round Up

One of the things I love about reading posts from moms all over the country is how universal our joys and obstacles can be. Our Local Perspectives bloggers have offered great posts to ponder and enjoy.

Helen Jane

I love to see how other people embrace food and host a great party. Helen Jane’s blog shares her lovely life in Napa Valley —the bocce ball games (and accompanying food), the get-togethers (and the accompanying lessons learned), the cute kids (who doesn’t love a cute kid) and Helen’s great sense of humor and laid-back perspective on entertaining.

White Lotus Cooks

Months ago, a friend treated me to homemade egg rolls. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Searching for a egg roll recipe (and the newfound knowledge that what I really wanted was a Spring Roll) led me to White Lotus Cooks, a delicious blog full of asian food, sweet treats, party ideas and family tid-bits.

Dear Lizzy

I love a pretty blog. Almost as much as I love a perky blog. Dear Lizzy is pretty, sweet and full of the kind of fun posts that make you feel better just knowing that someone this full of life is out in the world. Elizabeth Kartchner is also the scrapbooker behind “Dear Lizzy” products so you can look forward to all sorts of glittery goodness on that front. Happy Reading.
