sometimes we have to pick each others brains

Ideas are not easy….. Which is why today I am borrowing an idea from Amy Clark over at Mom Advice



She puts together a list of interesting blog posts as a way to “highlight other fabulous bloggers”.

Here is an example… Notebook 9-21-2016

Mom Advice is my favorite blog. It has all the things about a blog you could possibly want to read. Especially as a mom. She is serious and humorous. She has an incredible way with words and is both hilarious and inspiring. I only hope to be as great a blogger as she in the future.

Next on my list is…
