Sharing the Blog love – Showcase 13

Permalink

A big welcome to our 13th week of #SharingtheBlogLove and our weekly Blogger Showcase! Unlucky for some, but hopefully very lucky for this week’s featured bloggers!

If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are mine and Laura’s favourite posts from last week’s linky. We love that each week we can choose a few favourites for you all to read, comment and show a bit of extra love!

 

3 Little Ladies & Me

I discovered 3 Little Ladies and Me through Instagram a little while back and I’m so glad I did! I love hearing about Taryn’s tales of life with her 3 girls, and her post last week, 5 Things I’ve Learnt from the First Week of School, really brought it home what an exhausting, emotional, and hunger inducing experience starting school is for the whole family. I know there are lots of regular linkers who have new starters at school, so I hope you all love this post, and I know Laura loved this post too!

 

Topsy Turvy Tribe

I think a lot of us have daydreams at times of packing in life as we know it and heading abroad for a simpler way of life. Andrea’s post, A simpler life… Escaping the Rat Race, is such an inspiring read – after their youngest son was diagnosed and treated for a tumour, as a family, they left their jobs as teachers and moved to Portugal, leaving behind all of their possessions in search of a simpler life together as a family. Although I’m highly unlikely to be following in their footsteps, it did get me thinking seriously about the level of consumerism in our culture, and how that can take away from the joy of simple things. There are definitely some steps that I want to take from this post to simplify our life, and to take a step away from the consumerism that can become such a fixation.

 

Raw Childhood

Please don’t call them the Terrible Two’s really struck a chord with me. At every age with Max from 6 months onwards I’ve felt that whatever age he’s at has been better than the last. He’s currently nearly 2.5 and I think it’s definitely the best age yet – so much curiosity about the world, so much joy in little things. It’s lovely to watch him discovering the world and working things out. But all along the way, people have ‘warned’ me about the Terrible Two’s – ‘just you wait!’ they’d say with glee. Despite the unquestionable challenges that tantrums bring, there is so much to love about this age, and I loved Jade’s positive take on it.

 

Mummy Miller

As you’ll probably have gathered by now, I love a reflection on relationships and marriage, and Louise’s post, Our Anniversary, really put a smile on my face. My husband and I met in school too, and I think there really is something amazing about watching the boy you remember from school becoming a wonderful father to your child. Louise and her husband have packed in lots into their 2 year marriage and this is such a simple and beautiful tribute.

 

Did you catch any of these last week? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
