For Valentine’s Day, Two Mom Bloggers I Love

Love, love, love. I’m feelin’ it today. So in that spirit, I thought I’d share two mom bloggers I love with you.

Sheri Reed of Today Is Pretty, this joy+ride, and CafeMom’s Daily Buzz. (I used to blog about pregnancy for CafeMom, and I heart them, too.) See Sheri‘s beautiful photographs at Today Is Pretty and get inspired to be more creative in your everyday life at this joy+ride.

Sheri posted a sweet Mom-to-Mom Lovefest for Valentine’s Day on CafeMom this week that I was happy to be a part of — it’s a great way, too, to introduce yourself to other creative mom bloggers you may not have encountered before. Sheri has a knack for finding beauty, and she encourages other moms to do the same.

Christy Jordan of Following Elias. (I sent her a virtual Valentine in Sheri‘s Lovefest.) Christy has been blogging for almost six years about life with her special needs son, Elias, who was born at just 25 weeks. She’s now a new mama to full-term daughter Olive, who’s healthy and robust, but manages to pose a few challenges of her own. Christy‘s honest, emotional, brave — she’s one fierce mama and, boy, can she make me cry.

Check them out. You’ll be glad you did.

    amidst major sleep deprivation, a beyond fussy baby and a boy who hit his TA with his cane, I needed this–thanks for the love! And I’d write more but this one handed typing while trying to bounce a colicy kid aint working so well:)
