    Thank you for the introduction to such inspiring blogs, Lain! I've not read them except for the Zen Habits one. They look great.

    I've got a good one I read pretty's
    She's a city girl turned ultra country after marrying a wrangler...yes, she calls her hubby the Marlboro man and her kids "punks". Lots of cooking, tidbits of wisdom, info on homeschooling (although she never thought she'd do that!) and photography. Check it out (and do read her back story on the blog--it's great).

    Great picks --- I actually switched from reading Zen Habits to Zen Family Habits as I found the content more applicable to my life.

    Right now the one I go to daily is by Gretchen Rubin. I love to follow her quest for happiness. Always makes me think of how can I be happier.

    One I check everyday is Stephanie Nielson was in a horrific plane crash about 1 1/2 years ago, and her story is so inspiring. Her sister wrote while she was first recovering, and when she was able, she took over. She really tells it like it is, when it hurts, when she depressed about what she lost, but she always leans on the love of her family, and, of course, on God. She makes me feel like there is hope for whatever we go through.

    Like Karen G, I have recently fallen in love with Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project. Another non-scrapping blog I like is This is another one that is based on a book. She doesn't post as often as I would like, but trust me it is worth the wait as she is hilarious. A must read for anyone over 30.

    I like sharing blogs--here are some of my favorite reads: Enjoy!-Leslie

    These all look like really good blogs and I may spend a lot more time reading them this evening! I've also given you links to each of my daughter's blogs. Both love books, crafts, traveling and a lot of other things. I enjoy them (but I'm their mom!) and hope you will also.

    Funny - I read Kim Kesti's blog "Think Fast" every day too! I also love "The Pioneer Woman" and I bought her cookbook, it's excellent. Ali Edwards, Stacy Julian and Tara Whitney's "Just Be Blogged" are my other favs. (interesting note: my hubby, who can barely find his way around a computer, stumbled on the Pioneer Woman blog the other day and has started making some of her recipes - weird!!)

    Thanks so much for the link!!

    Mary, mom to 10

    Thank you so much for linking to me, and that very flattering writeup. Speaking of running on fumes, is it sad to admit I haven't written anything in a few days because I'm so sleep deprived from a LOST addiction that I fear it might just come out as gibberish?

    Thanks for the links, Lain! I'm off to Zen Family now. I too feel the void after discovering Real Simple wasn't real cheap.

    One of my favorite non-scrapbooking blogs is She does lots of needlework craftiness and occasionally posts recipes. She lives in Portland, OR which is not far from me so I feel a kinship just by being fellow Oregonians.

    Thank you so much for including me, Lain. How very flattering! I'm unfamiliar with most of the other blogs listed here except for Mary of Owlhaven. I was super-inspired by her "30 Days of Nothing" which she did about a year and a half ago. I'll have to check out the other ladies!

    It's entirely possible that I'm losing my mind...I could have sworn that I linked you to 5 blogs last night. Weird. Anyway...reading one this am that is going to make me late for work. And I don't even care.

    I forgot to add this one. Allison Kimball was well known in the scrapbooking world several years ago. she now had a blog where she talks about her family of 8, at least half of whom are adopted. She's also a quilter and a wonderful cook.

    Guess I need to add Allison's blog address. oops

    Awww- you are a sweetie! Thanks for the shout out. I'm loving the new links you left, too. Sweet.

    I love all the links Lain!

    One blog I always love is Antique Mommy. Read her about bit first to get to know her and her wonderful life story and then dive in! Very inspirational.

    Oh, and I have to give a shout out to a fellow Canadian lass who I LOVE. I always do a little happy dance when she shows up in my reader (check out her Halloween series--genius!).

    Its very interesting to read which blogs you love.I would like to visit those blogs as all seem very interesting and good..I like that you have shared this with us.Thanks..
