March 19, 2020 – First Day of Spring.
Such a strange time we are experiencing as a nation.
I have been sharing a lot of information on my Facebook page and Instagram daily and actually feel a bit overwhelmed by that myself! So I turn on my desktop to find some of my favorite blogs I have bookmarked from before the pandemic and home school madness begun.
I am not a book reader and more often ask for advice from my mom friends and so I find random articles and blogs very useful. Now if you are reading this, you are probably a reader or maybe you are just randomly stumble upon my blog 🙂 If that’s the case, I hope you stay a while.
Below is a list of some of the blogs I find useful in all aspect of life. Hopefully you find something you love and can connect with.
This for sure is one of the hardest time in most everyone’s life but I also believe that it is the time for us to come together, to support each other, and to embrace the time we are “gifted” to be with our loved ones.
Friends or strangers, please feel free to reach out if you may need anything within reason. I am here to listen or lend some eggs and rice if you may need any!
Take care everyone!

I got the keys to this blog in 2007, shortly after I became a mom. My ramblings were tired of being cooped up in the small space of my brain, and the blog market had some great interest rates. So I took the leap, set up Enjoying the Small Things, and threw a welcome mat at the door. This blog grew from an itty bitty space to a bigger floor plan in 2010 when I wrote about the birth of our daughter, Nella, who was born with Down syndrome. From there, I wrote a book, Bloom, about our first year with her. Read More…
