Weekend Blog Love

Are you ready for another awesome edition of Weekend Blog Love? I know I am! This weekly series is quickly becoming one of my favorite posts of the week. Why? Because I get to spread the love to some amazing bloggers that I truly admire, of course!

Before we get into the nitty-gritty though, I’d like to take a few minutes to reflect on my week. This week was a true blessing for me in SO many ways. Remember that post I wrote about The Miracle Morning? Well, I also joined the Miracle Morning Facebook group last week and let me tell you — it is amazing!

I posted a picture over there of my gratitude page in my bullet journal, and I was completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and positive vibes that I received!

Cultivating gratitude in my Bullet Journal. What are you grateful for today?This simple photo managed to rack up 498 likes & 87 comments in just 2 days in The Miracle Morning Community! Can we say amazing?!?

A few of the members over there inspired me to create the free gratitude printable that I shared with you on Thursday. I am SO incredibly grateful to The Miracle Morning Community for being so supportive!

I can’t recommend this group enough, people! If there was ever a place where I felt surrounded by like-minded people this is definitely it! I so look forward to logging in each morning and seeing what amazing posts and motivation are waiting for me there!

Some other blessings this week? Well, our house in St. Louis that we have had on the market forever finally got an offer! We are super hopeful that the sale will go through without a hitch. Selling this house will relieve us from a huge financial burden and finally get us back on track with our savings and travel funds. Keep your fingers crossed for us, will ya?

Our Wedding Day 08.16.13

Also, my favorite day of the year is tomorrow! What’s so special about August 16th, you may ask? Well folks, that would be our wedding anniversary.

2 years ago I married the man of my dreams. The guy who is not only a great husband, step-father & U.S. Marine — but also happens to be my best friend!

Oh, and don’t mind the fact that he looks like he’s going to bite my nose off in this picture! I promise you that no noses were harmed in this photoshoot!

  • Um, I really love this idea of sharing the love! Thanks so much for sharing my anxiety post!! Although it can be hard to be so raw and share 100% of yourself on the internet, I hope that others know they aren’t alone in their battle and that they can utilize at least one of the tips.

    Really though, I might need to jack your idea…I love how you included a little excerpt so we know what each article is about (:
