Blogs to soak in

My Mess: Old suitcases on highchair

I'm a little bit melancholy tonight. I've been missing a friend of mine who is busy working a TON! I am worried about our family friend, Mr. B who is an awesome guy, but has his life a little upside down. I was thinking about my trip to CO this month and started feeling a little sad about it being my first Thanksgiving up there since my grandpa died (it's gonna be tough.) And my knee hurts and I haven't been able to run as long as I normally do, which worries me because it's been about 3 weeks since I woke up and had a stiff knee for no apparent reason. But you know what? Through a couple of different avenues, through my picture I made of the Savior, through my signing up for December Daily, through stuff, I've found some yummy blogs and beautiful photostreams I didn't know about. And tonight after I get the front room cleaned up, I will sit down and soak it all in.

Here they are for you to enjoy:
-The Good Report with lovely posts like this one.
-Molly Irwin who is super creative and just started her One Good Loaf blog
-My Merry Way for her happy mommy posts.
-Carin well really I met Carin back in February, but I'm always checking my bloglines for her updates! If I was up in Utah, I would soooo hire her to do my family portraits. (p.s. I love your house, Carin!)
-(building) a little house by the big woods because she is doing what we all want to do: making a dream into reality. And she does such a wonderful job blogging about it!
-Rockstar Diaries Here's the thing...I dont know if you have to be a mormon house wife to be in awe of another mormon housewife living in the big city???? But I am. And so I read it and daydream about what it would be like to live in the big city.
-Cakies for being so stylin'!!!
-Leaca's photostream is soooo beautiful in that delicate and cool way that life is

Mmmm that's it for now. I've really got to get cracking on this front room.

Thank you for your sweet words about my photography--coming from you it means a lot. I will have to check your list out. I love checking out new blogs--my new addiction.

I hope your knee gets feeling better. That stinks.

P.S. These photos are great. I love the color tones.

I agree, the photos ARE beautiful. And I think they match the world "melancholy" (a word I have always loved.)

You are right I am a happy mom.

Thanks for the shout out. I am now off to follow all of your other links.

I hope you are feeling good again today.
