blogging is an amazing thing.

How many times have I woken up, feeling thoughts of doubt, thoughts that I thought were only mine? How many times have I scoured the internets, only to find that all across the world, there are people feeling things similar to my feelings? How many times have I read a perfect stranger's words and related so well, that they now become my friend? How many times have I been surprised to connect with a perfect stranger across the globe, or right in my own neighborhood? Blogging surely is an amazing thing.

Here are a few blog posts that have had me thinking the past few days: 

AllisonO's bold statement to the world! {Go Allison!}

Sweetney's candid thoughts about changing lifestyle and other's reactions

Steph's thoughts on saying yes more to your kids! 

Marianne's view on being an American, a stay at home mom and a resident of France

This weekend, all we did was lay low and veg- it was great! This afternoon we plan to spend the afternoon splashing in a kiddie pool and eating popsicles- what are your plans for the day??

Vising from Mingle Monday. My plans are nowhere near as fun as yours, I am continuing to work on cleaning out my Grandpa's house. It's a big job and I'm overwhelmed.

I love that you are digging blogging, me, too. I am going to check out a post or two you recommended.

I love blogging, and have been using it for catharsis for over 3 years now. And so many good friends - 11 of whom I have actually met in real life and some whose homes I have stayed in on vacation. Fabulous outlet!

First of all: adorable blog. I love the dandelion image. Secondly, I would much rather do what you're planning instead of the summer school preparations and home organizing I'll be doing tonight. Blah. Third: I found you via Mingle Monday and I'll be back for more great posts :)

I like the idea of sharing other blogs that are like yours. It is always nice when you realize others are experiencing similar experiences as yours. Visiting from Mingle Monday!

I find this is the most awesome part of blogging--connecting with others and feeling like other people, even strangers, can relate. Sometimes it's so validating!
