weekly links: 31/52

Welcome to a series I’m starting of my current favorite blog post finds – a round-up for each week of the year!

One of the main reasons I started blogging is because I enjoy reading other people’s blogs so much. I may or may not discover a (new to me) blog and delve embarrassingly deep into the archives (like very-beginning-deep) just so I can get the whole story and background in an only slightly obsessive way. Don’t judge. I just love other people’s stories, but hearing them straight from the source? Even better. Give me all the details.

I will be sharing some of these favorite reads with you, right here. Some will be humorous (ahem, Jen Hatmaker), many will be heartfelt, and others will just dole out awesome tips, tricks, and ideas. They may be articles, stories, videos, or images. You may not enjoy sifting through tons of blogs to find a gem, so I’ll do the searching for you and then happily hand over the jewels I discover along the way.

Here are my picks for WEEK 31/52:

{ the massey spot }
Amber and her husband already have two insanely adorable girl twins, and they just added another baby girl to the mix. This post is a newborn update complete with gorgeous photos that might make your ovaries hurt, ladies. Fair warning. Her instagram is also one of my favorite feeds to follow.

{ see vanessa craft }
I don’t even have school-aged children, but I love this printable survey from Vanessa. What a great way to find out the all the teacher’s favorites!

{ the nester }
Her motto is “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” and even aside from home decor, that notion is so inspiring. In this recent post of hers, Myquillyn details how she hosts guests even when her house is less than perfect. She’s completely transparent with her imperfections and gives you permission to follow her lead.

{ coffee + crumbs }
Heads up. I adore this collaborative motherhood blog. Full of wordy posts, completely relatable stories, and topped with a good dose of encouragement. So this blog will probably show up in my “weekly reads” on a fairly regular basis. I promise you’ll love them all, starting with this one.

{ michaela noelle designs }
Like this design and lifestyle blogger, I brake for sunsets. (No, for real. I do.) So her design picks inspired by a colorful sky has me rethinking my living room colors and craving some soft pastels.

PS.  Bloglovin is a great way to keep up with your most-read blogs, all in one place. I would love for you to follow me over there, and not only will you get an update when I have a new post, but you’ll also be able view all the blogs I follow and the posts I’ve saved.

PPS.  Know what would make me really happy? Finding new amazing blogs to obsess over. If you know of one, leave it in the comments section!

Also, I cannot hit publish on a post without a photo. Physically impossible. So –

that hair. 

Hope you’re having an amazing week!
