Virtual Neighbors

Friday, October 29, 2010

Good morning.

Prepare yourselves for a shock.

I've got more blogs to share with you. I know. I know! I'm all about the blogs. But really, if you don't already, you must know about these. You cannot continue without this knowledge. It wouldn't be right. Plus, these ladies are the best kind of neighbors: fresh, funny, and friendly. Inspiring and intelligent. Visit once, and you may find yourself returning to their doorsteps day after day.

My Apple Tree - I discovered this SC blog through a friend, and I was struck by the title. I'd never heard of the expression, "Only God knows how many apples are in one seed," until just a few days before. Then I wandered over to Britton's blog and there it was again. Good stuff. I enjoy Britton's perspective on motherhood, and I always find her blog inspiring. Plus, I entered a recent giveaway she sponsored, and I won. I mean really, who wins? Not me. But I did. And it came like this:

How nice is that? Thank you!

A Holy Experience - Another gem discovered through {in}courage, and another blog I wish I had discovered long ago. But to be honest, I probably wasn't ready for it long ago. Ann Voskamp is stunning. Her writing is deep and beautiful. Her blog is perfectly named. She has a new book coming out, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, which I will be adding to my shelf. Find a quiet space and go explore her site soon.

Thrifty Decor Chick - This chick is fun. Her recent post about her deck had me howling. I love someone who knows how to make fun of herself, and she does it perfectly. Also, I like her style and I respect her sensibility. She is proud of her purchases from "regular" places like Target or Home Depot, or (yes) The Dollar Tree. Love it.

Also, you've got to check out this blog about MPPC's current mission trip to Nicaragua. They just visited El Porvenir - the cooperative where 43 Families Coffee is made!

Go ahead, click on over and introduce yourself. You'll be glad you did.

Any other neighbors you think we should meet?
