Book Mania: Cultivating love and passion for reading.
I first shared about Book Mania here. It is an inspirational blog of book masterpieces, literary excerpts, beautiful libraries, bookshelves, bookshops & cool book stuff. I could daydream about these photos all day.
Design Mom: Where design and motherhood intersect.
I first shared about Design Mom here. I know nothing about design and I'm just learning about motherhood, but I love this website just the same. In fact, I started reading this blog long before I became a mother. I love the crafty ideas, fun family ideas, kids book suggestions, and best of all, the birth stories.

I first shared about Honey the Great Dane here. I love reading about Honey's adventures and the training that Hsin-Yi does with her.

My favorite post, and one that I think everyone should read is So you want a doggie like me? I highly recommend it if you want some insight in to what life with a Great Dane is like.

I first shared about Quick Takes with the Kimballs here. I love reading about my sister, her husband, and their adorable little boy!
You Grow Girl: Gardening for the People
I first shared about You Grow Girl here. I love Gayla's gardening for anybody, anywhere attitude. I have one of her books and I love it. I first started following her blog when we lived in an apartment and I was gardening in containers on the back deck and dreaming of someday owning land. What she writes about, and the pictures she takes, are just as accessible then as they are now..
