Blog Crushin' Monday

We're back from a weekend of "what ifs" and "just maybes," but more on that later. For now, I'm just in the mood to spread the love a bit. Karma and all. Please allow me to present five crush-worthy blogs, each helmed by some pretty amazing women (go ahead and cheer after each list item; they deserve their own round of applause):

The Four Dog Fig Farm. Sasha's a friend of mine from New Mexico, and her blog from the South Valley takes me right back there with every read. She also consistently reminds me why I'd want to be friends with her, even I wasn't already. Her takes on gardening, cooking, decor, and more remind me with every post why she's one of the coolest kids out there.

Spice and Sass. Samma makes me grin like a fool and tickles me to no end. We have grand plans to do a driving and eating tour of various Southern hot spots one day, and I'd be lying if I denied that doing so is one of my big goals for 2010. We don't even need the road trip, though, really... I'd take front porch sittin' and sippin' with this gal in a heartbeat.

The Sweetest Occasion. Cyd's eye for event design is incredible, and this blog of hers gives me that "oh wow look at THAT detail, no THAT detail, no THAT detail!" feeling that I've missed since wedding planning. And since Cyd features all sorts of soirees, there's no post-wedding guilt associated with ogling her pretty pictures! Thank you, Cyd, for my daily dose of eye candy and inspiration.

Playing House. Amy has an infectious enthusiasm that is among my favorite qualities in people, online or off. She tackles culinary projects big and small in her kitchen, always with the sort of positive can-do-ness that I find absolutely irresistible, and always without any hint of airs or judgment. Amy's on my "fantasy next door neighbor" list hall of fame, and for more reasons than I can count.

A Lovely Morning. I've been crushing on Kristina for ages now... before her pregnancy, before the new business venture, before her wedding (and mine). She's just that kind of crush-worthy powerhouse. Reading Kristina is endlessly calming for me, and reminds me of the kind of life I most want to live. That's no small thing.

  1. Ahhh! You just made my entire 2010. And it's only January 11th, so that's saying a lot. ;-) Thank you thank you thanky you! I am so glad you're enjoying lots of guilt-free pleasure as you read along. :-D The feeling is mutual as I always look forward to your posts so it was fabulous today to not only be mentioned, but to be included among such great women. xoxo

  2. Thanks Maggie, you are so sweet! Now I have four more blogs to check out!

  3. Thanks for the little list

  4. I have to agree with so many of these -especially- A lovely morning ... her photos are so beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, I am not a google "reader" person and just happen onto blogs when it crosses my mind.

    I have not been to her site since her wedding. Who knew she was preggers!?! Well, I guess everyone who knew ~ but me! :P

  5. Thanks, Maggie! As my mom would say, we have a mutual admiration society going on here :) HUGS!!!!

  6. Great finds. I've been digging on Samma too ;) The Sweetest Occasion, oh my goodness I'm loving it.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for the list! I can't wait to check them all out. And I'm totally crushing on your blog, which is new to me! So glad I found ya!


  8. I think I am blushing! Maggie- you know the crush is mutual, and I am ready for the road trip any time! Seriously, you made my day, thank you so much for your sweet words- I needed that.


C'mon, make my day...
