I Missed My Blogger Friends.

I have been extremely focused on work lately and keeping things running smoothly at home.  My husband is working a shut down which means he works 12 hour days 7 days a week with every 14th day off.  Bless his soul he heads out the door each morning with a smile on his face and comes home with one as well.  I would be a grumpy mess, working that much.  Anyways, so I have been working hard to keep the house in order on my own so all he has to do is focus on work.  In addition to my increased responsibilities at home, work is crazy and exciting and super busy right now too.

I am not writing this blog to complain about being busy because I actually prefer my days being full of meaningful activities, but in my busyness I have not spent as much time as I usually do hanging out online with my favourite bloggers.  Over the last few days I have been catching up on what I have missed in the last few weeks.  Below is a list of my favourite blogs right now.

Bookie Babble - Brooke is a wonderful musician and from what I can tell, a super fun girl.  She has started posting a song each Monday for "Music Mondays", you should give her a listen.

Oh Joy - Joy makes everything so beautiful and she has a series of videos called Make Someone Happy  that are very inspiring.  If you are looking for some design inspiration, this is a great place to get it.

Love Taza - This little family shares their life in the big apple with great photos and fun writing.  Most of all I find their positive outlook on life inspirational.
