Michele’s Favorite Pick!

My favorite and the viewer’s pick and BY FAR THE MOST CLICKS this week is How My Toddler Taught Me A Lesson on Body Positivity by Valerie at Three Clementines. I love how real Valerie is in her post about how her toddler changed how she felt about an issue that we all struggle with! Be sure to read her post because I can’t do it justice at all!!!


Lori’s Favorite Pick!

Infertility has always been a topic near and dear to my heart.  Last week on my blog I highlighted several stories during National Infertility Awareness Week. I learned so much in Jamie’s post about Real Mom Struggles and PPA, and I also Loved Valerie’s real look at body image after having twins. My heart was especially touched by Becca’s story of the time in-between trying to conceive touched my heart. Getting these little people here can be so hard, and then there are the trials surrounding our recovering and ever-changing body. Being a momma is just plain hard.

        Sorry to be a bit of a pain, but as I now went to vote (on the thumb nails) it’s actually giving me three votes. And as I have three favourites I’d love to use all three ‘hearts’, as long as that doesn’t get me disqualified or banned 😬 ? Thank you again! 🙂
