All you need is love.

And I’m feeling a lot of it today!

Over the last week, the usual bliss has gotten cyber-hugs from a few bloggers friends. It feels really good to be recognized by fellow bloggers, and know that not only are people reading what I send out into the void, but they like it!

The first smooch I got was from my friend Lori at mabel & elodie sketchbook. She was inspired to begin blogging again, and I’m excited! Not only is this woman an incredible potter, but she’s hilarious! Stop by her blog and check out her beautiful work. I can’t wait to keep reading…

The second bit of love came from Abby at Eat Healthy Be Happy. She included the usual bliss on her list of nominees for the Very Inspiring Blogger award! She also had such sweet things to say… Thank you, Abby! 

This morning, I woke up to learn that Jorie from The Midwest Maven included me on her Friday Round-up post as one of the “Best o’ the Blogs.” She referenced a post I wrote recently about real life and the reason I love to blog. It makes me so happy to know that this post spoke to Jorie enough to want to share it with her own readers.

I think I gained 9 new followers in the last 24 hours or so, which is incredible. I also got the little PING that I had my best days for likes and followers in the last few days, and I am loving the interaction via comments. As I expressed here (76 followers ago), THANK YOU for reading.

And last, the lovely Kate at 360 til 30 asked me to be a guest blogger on her site today! If you aren’t reading her blog, you MUST. She just reached an incredible milestone in her life, and the journey leading up to it was inspiring to follow. Plus she’s funny and beautiful. I can’t wait to see what comes next in her life, and it was an honor to contribute to one of my favorite blogs. Being Friday… in summer…I let myself daydream about my idea of escape. Check out my post here! 

And now, I’ve got a sad, snipped puppy to cuddle and a weekend to enjoy. I’ll be basking in the blog love I received this week. Please take a look at the links above and see what these lovely ladies have going on.

And remember, the best thing to do with love is give it away. 



  1. You are THE BEST!! Thank you so much for the cyber love. It is mutual. You are so amazing and inspiring. Big hugs to you from here!! xoxo
