A few post ago, I made mention that I had discovered several blogs that I began following via my process of redoing my kitchen. I came across numerous blogs over the process, but there was something about these blogs that I felt an instant connection with the writers. I think that maybe I see some of my very own dear friends in each one of the following women.
May I introduce……
Edie @ LifeinGrace
Don’t tell the others below (because I have learned that via blogging three of them are friends), but Edie is my favorite new friend. I could spend hours with Edie at LifeinGrace looking at her beautiful home, listening to her podcast and reading her wise words. I met her when I googled “Is marble good for kitchens”. She had an entire post on it. After reading her post, I knew for certain that I was getting marble counter tops in my kitchen regardless of how many people tried to talk me out of it. I had wanted marble in my kitchen for years, and I was going to have it. I got it and LOVE it! There so many other reasons I feel connected to Edie. Go meet her and you’ll understand…you’ll connect with her too.
Karen @ Redoux Interiors
She had me at the title of her blog…..REDOUX!!!! Is that not the way we’d spell “redo” here in Louisiana??? We give every word we can a french spelling to it, and so does she even though she is in California. I think one of my favorite things about Karen is that she makes up her own French words. It cracks me up, because I have my own invented spelling…LOL!!! Read her “All About Moi” as well as her New Here? if you want to giggle and fall in love with her too. She dumpster dives and shares her trash finds every Tuesday. I found her as I was researching information on redoing my kitchen cabinets.
My next two friends I met through Edie. She introduced them to me not long after she and I met. 😉
The Nester (Myquillyn) @ Nesting Place
I think I love The Nester so much because she is slowly convincing me of her motto….”It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful”. As you can see, I am not totally convinced of that; otherwise I’d share my unfinished kitchen redo with you…Ha! She is the author of the book The Nesting Place. Maybe if I finish the book before Mr. Miss Nola finishes the kitchen, I’ll be convinced to share the incomplete. Although, she has confirmed that my take on decorating is not totally wrong. I always said that I do not have a particular look or style. If I like it, I put it in my home regardless of whether or not it followed some designer’s decorating tip.
Next up and finally is:
Big Mama (Melanie) @ Big Mama
Big Mama…just the name of her blog alone is sure to get a giggle out of you. She is the Seinfeld of the blogs. She literally writes about “nothing” in her everyday life and does it so that you are wanting more. That is true talent!!! Read about her and discover how she had me at “diet coke”. She is the author of two books in which I’ll let you check them yourself out via her blog.
I think that each of these women are worth sharing with you. I hope you take a minute to check out each of them. I’ll be honest in sharing that I know there is the possibility that you may drop me for them. I mean, seriously, how many blogs can one person follow. Let’s take Edie for example. She has 16,000+ followers and I have 16-17….LOL!! I get it!! Who can compete with that? So as I take the risk of losing you to them, I hope you keep this in mind as you get to know each of these woman on your own…….
Enjoy your weekend!
