Bringing up Brooke

A blog with substance

Lori from Bringing up Brooke just gave us another award.

Thanks Lori!

-Why did you start blogging?

The blog was actually Will’s (my husband) idea. He thought it would be a good way for me to share my experiences as a new mom with other moms and also be able to connect with moms feeling the same ups and downs like I was feeling. I’m so glad I listened to him! It really has helped me realize that everything I have gone through with motherhood so far is normal, I have found great comfort and support through a lot of mom bloggers.

What are your blogging rules?

My only blogging rule is to be honest and be myself. To say it as I feel it and mean it. I would hate for a new mom to come see my blog and only see “the sun is always shining” posts. Just like with everything else in life, there are good times, and there are bad times. They are all here.

Now I pass this award to:

Jess because she rocks so what

Ameya because she wonders and wanders

Natasha because she coco y lala

A few of my favorite things

Thinking about vacation (August in West Virginia and September in Portugal) always gets me excited.

As excited as I get about being away and being somewhere totally different, I also get homesick.

You see, as much as I like to travel, I also really love being home surrounded by my favorite things.

So, this got me thinking: what are my favorite things?

There are quite a few.
