You, ladies, are the bestest and I am oh!-so-thankful that I "know" you.
Melissa is one of my all-time favourite people to get a comment from. She is so freaking funny and to the point, while still being over the top with a mixture of ridiculousness and enthusiasm. As for her blog, she is the only full-on mommy-blogger I can handle. As someone who doesn't want kids, I generally steer clear of family-style blogs, but Melissa has the perfect balance of DIY projects, pictures of her kids, stories about being a mom and stories about being an all-around awesome human being.
Kayla is a self-described goofball, which means I can tell you she's weird and she likely won't get mad. The thing is, she's weird in all the right ways. She's clever and silly and intelligent and into science and video games. It doesn't hurt that she has also wants to be an honourary Canadian. She's working on learning the words to O Canada as we speak, so basically, she's well on her way.
Trisha and I are bros. We've been emailing up a storm for a while now and seriously, she is bad-ass. I love this girl. She's always making me laugh with the quirkiest anecdotes. Plus, she has some awesome features on her blog. My favourite, by far, is her Behind the Scenes series where she interviews artisans from around the world. So awesome!
Lisa, bless her heart, was the first blogger I met in real life. Yup. We had an IRL meet up. It was awkward. But we've overcome it and now we're pen pals. I call that a success. Next time we're face to face, we've agreed we'll drink beer instead of coffee. We figure that should loosen our lips and bring on some of the laughs that we so often get when reading each others' comments. (By the way, Lisa is another mommy-blogger. Well, to a certain extent. She's a blogger, who's a mom, but her blog doesn't revolved around motherhood. So, what I'm trying to say is, she's tolerable. Ha! Just kidding. Love you, Lisa!)
If you follow me here or on Twitter, you already know I have a huge hard-on for Amanda over at Little Lady Little City. She is such a wicked-awesome human being and she's living the life that I pretend I'm cut out for, but that, in actual fact, would leave me constantly complaining. Isn't it nice to live vicariously through others? I think so!
Before this post gets too crazy long, I think I better cut myself off. I know I could go on and on and on, but I think I'll leave it for another thankful day.
What blogs are you thankful for? Are there any I should check out?
