Come On Over, It's Share Day


First off, thank y'all sweet souls bunches for stopping by and wishing me a speedy recovery! Y'all really know how to make a girl smile! The good news is, I made a tiny bit of progress and have a little bit of relief pain wise, oh, the angels were singing, it was like a humongous weight was lifted off of me. I am going to write about my pinched nerve journey whenever I make it to the other side of this mess, because I've really been angry at the conflicting information on the subject and I'm going to have to through my hat into the ring on the subject. Well, that'll be something for y'all to look forward to, right???? {wink}.

Now, on to Share Day............... I know there are a plethora of awesome blogs out there that I've never even heard of or had the time to visit, and there's only so much time I can spend on the computer, so with that said, I do have a few faves that I wanted to share with y'all today. Here's my unofficial list in no particular order:

{wouldn't you luv to share a cup of coffee in her kitchen???}

What can I say but, she's JERUSALEM GREER y'all. Visiting her blog is like putting on your favorite pajama pants and old tee and sitting down with a cup of coffee. She's homespun personified and that's that!


{dreamy, huh???}

Run on by and meet Sara if you haven't found her already. She's one creative cookie, she lives on a farm, and I would be her in a minute if I could go back in time and realize who I really was meant to be a whole lot sooner, that is as long as I could keep my hubby and four sweeties! She's young, full of ideas, and a real treat. Such an inspiring young woman.

{she takes awesome pictures like this full of beautiful yummies}

Again, a young woman who is following her heart, oh if I'd only been brave enough to follow mine sooner! I've not been following her for all that long, but she constantly amazes me with her energy AND, she lives on a farm, starting to see any similarities with my favorite blogs? Yep, you guessed it, chickens, cows and growing your own food rank pretty high on my list.

{I could sit here in Shannan's living room and talk for a while, couldn't you?}

And last but not least, Shannan. I've followed her the longest and my has she inspired me over the years and without a doubt had a whole lot to do with me embracing me however wonky {that's one of Shannan's words-ha} that may be. 

Now one day, in my dreams, I plan on somehow meeting these gals in real life. I think we'd all get along swimmingly! Now you share, do you know of a blog I might be missing out on? Share away in the comments! Big hugs to y'all!
xo,
Amy

Hello


Well........ this week hasn't gone as planned! Life has had me by the horns instead of the other way around. Ever been there? So anywho, seems I'm a bit off my regular blogging schedule, but I did want to pop in and say hi, and hopefully, fingers and toes crossed, I'll be back posting as usual next week. Until then, y'all have a fabulous fall-y weekend!

Just Like You



Do you have days when you wonder if you're doing this life thing right? Do you browse the web, find awesome blogs {there's no shortage of those out there!} and feel that you can't possibly measure up? There are some fabulous women out there throwing extraordinary parties and documenting them in step-by-step tutorials, turning their dilapidated basements into dream rooms, there's no shortage of here's-how-you-do-it webinars, mercy, everyone's writing a New York Times best seller it seems. Do you ever come away from all that and wonder, I'm not measuring up, am I? 

I do.

We're not all extraordinary in the same ways. Some of us are extraordinary in more subtle, less flashy ways, but still, just as mighty in purpose, maybe even more so. It wouldn't make a very good webinar, but boy I'm good at camping adventures, if I do say so myself. Now, if I could just get my teenage daughters to appreciate this gift of mine, why, I'd be on cloud nine!

It's hard to not be envious of the abilities of others. It happens to me all the time. To be honest, I don't peruse blogs as often as I once did. That's weird to hear coming from a blogger  isn't it???? It's hard sometimes to control my green.  

So, when you visit here, keep in mind that I don't have it all going on, that my floors are covered in dog fur and legos most all  of the time, and that invariably, I do over-salt the kale and burn the cornbread, why, sometimes it won't even come out of the pan. Some days, my failures far outweigh my successes. You too?

See, I am just like you {smile}.
