Five Favorites - My Favorite Mom Bloggers

I was thinking of what to do for my five favorites this week when I realized that I have five mom bloggers that I follow.  I look forward to reading their posts and gleaning some words of wisdom along with some very entertaining stories.  So without further ado... my five favorite mom bloggers


Of course, my number 1 favorite blogger is my mom, Laura over at Homeschooling with Joy.  I admit, before I went away to college for a year and a third I didn't really read it all that much but while I was there it was nice to have a way to keep up on all the things going on at home.  In case you were wondering, the caterpillar on the branch isn't some commentary on the homeschooling life... my mom's just an awesome photographer and rotates the header photo on her blog with the time of the year.


Hallie over at Moxie Wife is another favorite of mine.  I've been following her writing for a good while, starting back when she was still "Betty Beguiles".  I love reading all of her posts, but her ones on marriage are by far my favorites.  She always leaves me with something new to ponder over, or little thoughts to file away for later when I'm married.  She also has had some great thoughts about make up and style, my favorite being "Cultivating a Positive Body Image".  I've certainly needed that advice at times!


Kelly at This Ain't the Lyceum.  I cannot say enough about this woman!  With two young children who have Spinal Muscular Atrophy, I can't imagine how trying life must be sometimes.  Yet she is always so funny and upbeat. (I especially love her "What I Wore Sunday" posts.  Hilarious!)  I always get excited when I go to my blogger newsfeed and see a new post.


You may have read stuff by Simcha Fisher from her blogger column over at the National Catholic Register.  Now you can follow her blog over at Patheos.  Simcha blogs about a whole gamut of topics - Catholicism, modesty, family, marriage, world/national topics.  She's not afraid to give her opinion and if you don't like it, well that's nice and have a good day.   I don't always agree with her, but I always get a kick out of her snarky way of writing.  

Last but not least is Anne (spelled with an "e"!) at the Modern Mrs. Darcy.  I just discovered her lovely blog the other day... honestly, I don't know if I even remember how I came across it!  I am so very glad that I did, and I have been enjoying reading her new posts as well as going back into the archives to read some old ones.  (Such as this wonderful "Life Lessons from Green Gables" series).  I'm looking forward to reading more from Anne!

And that is that, my dear readers!  I do hope you will check out these lovely women's blogs for yourself, and once you are finished with that... head on over to MoxieWife (Ha, see! you have no excuse not to visit her!) for more Five Favorites!
