This is a post that I have been wanting to do for some time.  I waited this long because I really wanted to get a sense of what was out there.  I should say that every blog that I have looked at and been following are great.  So much diverse ideas, lives and general interest out there.  If there are people who are not out there blogging…they should be.  I also find it an awesome form of therapy – just getting my ideas down, writing about the things that I like best…it liberating and I’m glad that I started (because now I know I will not stop).  Also blogging literally get me away from the TV and all the bad habits that I want to get rid of in my life.

As I write this post, I know that the three WordPress blogs that I put down today will always be a best but I know that as I continue my journey in blogging and as I read more and more blogs, this best 3 might change from week to week, month to month, year to year.  So for this particular post, on today’s date, the blogs that I believe are the best have been included (there are so many honorable mentions that I just couldn’t list them all but I definitely following them).  To me these blogs represent a good cross-section of life and so much more.

So, here are the Best 3….WordPress Blogs:

1.  Bucket List Publications  http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/

2. Adventures for a Life You Love http://adventuresforlife.wordpress.com/

3.  Make Something Mondays! http://makesomethingmondays.wordpress.com/

My first choice is a blog that everyone should check out.  It is a posy about bucket lists but so much more.  It is amazing the things that people have done and really let’s you dream and think about your own bucket list.  I am one of the people out there that has yet to create one but after reading this blog, I think I need to write my own.  This awesome blog is also now choosing lucky people to actually fulfill their some of their bucket list items…

The second blog is one that I really like…especially the title.  Just read it and I guarantee you will smile at the quotes and sayings – especially the post about “What Fo You Do”.  It is just a great idea.

My last choice is Make Something Mondays!  This blog is full of great and awesome do-it-yourself projects (and a few other topics).  It is a fun blog and just a nice break to read these (and realize you might be crafty after all and that it really isn’t that hard).

What blogs do you think should be included? Leave a comment and let me know!

The role that a mother can play in her child’s life is tremendous and since it’s Mother’s Day, I wanted to devote another post to the most important women in our lives – our mothers.  Mothers truly do have such a profound affect on our lives and who we turn out to be in life (and even how we parent our own children).  Some mothers have good influence on their children’s growth while we know that some do not.  It is true that not all people are born to be good parents and some, unfortunately have lived up to that stereotype.  For those of us that have had a positive influence from our mothers – even in a small way – it has effect us and shaped who we are.  That is why today (even though I am far away from my own mother) I wanted to share the best 3 ways to thank your mother today and on all the other 364 days in the year.

So, here are the Best 3…Ways to Thank Your Mom:

1.  Go and see her – spend time with her…and let her know you love and cherish her

2.  Talk to her (if you are not in the same place) – don’t let your life take over and forget to call – make the time (that is my own personal lesson)

3.  Surprise her with random things (not just gifts) but a walk, going to the movies, going shoe shopping together, visiting a museum etc. – this just let’s her know that you are thinking about her and that you care and enjoy her company!

To all the mother’s out there – Happy Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought that it would be nice to pay tribute to all the mothers out there in the world and write about the best things about moms and the role that they play in our lives.  I am a fortunate daughter who has the most amazing, wonderful and beautiful mother.  She is a strong woman (more than she even realizes) who can handle all that life has thrown at her. She doesn’t dwell on the bad but looks to the good.  She stands tall (even though she is only 5″ feet tall), fights for what she believes in and loves her husband and her children unconditionally.  I am truly lucky and blessed that she is my mother (and I know my siblings would echo my thoughts).

So, here are the Best 3…Things about Moms:

1.  They love us unconditionally

2.  As we grow older, they aren’t just our mother but become our friend

3.  They give the best hugs

I think that these pretty much sum up only three of the best things about moms.  There are so many more.

Happy Mother’s Day!
