So, you girls know that you totally made my life last week, right? I was thrilled (thrilled, I tell you!) to see that so many of you had written your own Five Favorites posts. Not only did I have a ball reading about your current faves, but I now have a Reader full of fantastic new (to me) blogs to follow! So, thanks, loves! You girls are the best. (Brand new link-up below!)
In quick, bite-sized blog posts, 3 things for Mom looks at the same three topics (a truth, a tip & a find) through the eyes of different inspiring mom bloggers. Discover a fresh voice, a neat product and a unique perspective every weekday.
What Mom couldn’t benefit from that?
(Also, Lauren was sweet enough to invite me to contribute. My truth, tip, and find were posted this morning!)
Do you ever pray for silly things? Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my upcoming birth and dreaming of what little things might make it extra special (like essential oils! wink, wink). I’ve asked God to bless us with a safe labor and delivery and all that, but I’ve also asked Him whether I might labor during the night, surrounded by yellow tulips, while rain pours down outside. These things might not ultimately be the most important things, but I don’t think He minds. ;)
Pennies from the year you met your husband, were married, and had your babies. How sweet is that?
I think I’m going to have to turn in my Vintage FanGirl Card because word on the street is that Besame Cosmetics is the vintage-inspired brand to have and I am ashamed to admit that I have never tried any of their products. The photos alone are swoon-worthy enough to be included in this week’s favorites, though, don’t you think?
If only they sold Dr. Teal’s Lavener Epsom Salt by the bucket. I’d buy five. It smells heavenly. Plus, it does a great job of soothing my pregnancy aches and pains. Win-win.
Have a lovely week, cutie pies!
