Friday Love~ Guest Post by Lindsay of 'Just My Blog'

**Happy Friday, Lovelies! As a challenge for a blogging community I'm a part of I am actually posting my regularly scheduled Love List over at Just My Blog, which is where my guest writer today, Lindsay, usually blogs. If you're visiting from Lindsay's site, welcome! I do hope you'll take a few minutes to look around, check out the cookies (which I bake nearly every day) and/or the insanity that is my life... If you're not new around here, I'd love for you to get to know Lindsay and jump over to her neck of the woods to say hello. xo, M**

The SITS Girls have brought Mandy and I together (along with many other bloggers) as a tribe. The Hedgehog Tribe to be exact. We are a group of bloggers who all have young children. One of our challenges as a tribe was to swap some guest posts...So here I am! I normally blog over at Just My Blog, but today I'm giving Mandy a break and holding her hostage until she bakes me some chocolate chip cookies. Also, you can find her at my blog today giving me some awesome guest post love. So, what do I love?

I love the Fall. I didn't used to love Autum or Fall or whatever you want to call it. As a matter of fact, I loathed Fall because it meant that a freezing winter was just around the corner. Then I moved to Georgia....and winter isn't as terrible as it was in Illinois. Now I can finally enjoy the leaves changing color and the nip in the air.
I love shops like this one. I even love them when I have no money to spend in them. I love imagining their pretty things in my not pretty {yet} house. I love knowing that most of the items in their shop were lovingly made by hand by someone who loves making them (like Mandy).
I love blogging. I love all of the amazing women I've connected with since I began blogging. The Hedgehog Tribe has turned out to be a pretty awesome bunch of women who I know I can really relate to and get along with. As a matter of fact, if you get a chance, go check each of them out. They're all different types of blogs and designs...our tribe was put together because we have young children, but it is not necessarily the defining focus of each of our blogs.
Lastly, and probably most obviously, I love my children. My girls make me smile at least 17 times a day. They bring me joy, love, frustration, psychosis, confusement and hugs. The hugs make the rest of it all worthwhile. Their smiles are contagious. Their cheeks are totally pinchable. Their voices are magical. The complete innocence and compassion they have are overwhelmingly beautiful. I am so thankful for them each and every day.
Okay, so I've told you a little of what I tell me, what do you love? What is making you smile today? What is reminding you to be thankful?


  1. Fall is HUGE at our house too right now. The colors are just amazing and my girls love the leaves.
    The hedgehog tribe has been really fun I just wish I had more time to really read and connect with all the women. Doing my best, but it never feels like enough.
    Happy guest blog day!
