Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Sharing the Love


“If you are really thankful, what do you do?  You share.” – W. Clement Stone

Feeling pretty darn thankful these days.  Lately, I am enjoying all the things writing a blog can offer.  I learn new things about myself, my writing and how a writing a blog can really enhance your life.

Six months ago, I had never read a single blog.  I did not know what a blog even was.  Now I call myself a blogger…amazing.

Writing a blog makes you part of the blogging community.  Since I have started my blog, I have taken an interest in other bloggers.  There are a lot of very talented people sharing all sort of experiences.

Today, I thought I would share with you, blogs I love.  You may find you like reading them, as much as I do.

Here they are in random order.

Blogs I Love

Smashed Peas and Carrots

When I started my blog I thought about naming it, ‘Smashed Peas’.  Turns out, someone else already had the name for their blog.

Smashed Peas and Carrots is crafting, sewing, knitting and cooking how-to blog.  It is written by Maggie, a mother of three young children.  Maggie has all the talents I do not have.  Her blog is full of ideas and she provides step by step directions.  She also own a children’s handmade clothing business called, Smashed Peas and Carrots.


Chookooloonks is a photo blog featuring the talented writer/photographer, Karen Walrond.  You may remember Karen as the author of the book, Beauty of Different.  Her daily blog is inspirational.  Each day she uses her talent as a photographer to convey a thought or idea.  Her photographic images are stunning.

Small Notebook

Small Notebook is a blog about simplifying your life.  Rachel Meeks is the author of the blog and uses her talents of organization.  Rachel provides practical suggestions for organizing your home, housekeeping and finances.  She also gives ideas for cooking and cleaning.  She is the author of a very helpful blogging reference book called, Simple Blogging.

Not Quite Old

Not Quite Old is a well-written humor blog about aging gracefully.  Nancy, the author, is a sixty year old woman who writes her thoughts and experiences about growing older.

Smitten Kitchen

Smitten Kitchen is a cooking blog.  This blog is one both my talented, baking sisters love.  It features talented Deb, a freelance writer, photographer, and cook.  She shares recipes and cooking ideas from her small kitchen in New York City.

Ghost Town Farm

Ghost Town Farm is a blog about city farming.  I started reading this blog when the author, Novella Carpenter, was featured in one of my home magazines.  Novella writes about her experience running a small farm in downtown Oakland, California.  She grows vegetables, as well as raises all sorts of animals, including my favorite…goats.  This interesting blog talks about farming, food, environment and culture.

These are some of the blogs I like to read.  There are hundreds more out there for me to discover.

Do you have a favorite blog?  Share the love.

We are all in this journey together.

Thanks for reading my blog, friends.  Talk with you soon.
