It’s time for my favorite blog posts from the week. This is the post where I share some of my favorite posts from other bloggers from the current or past week (or so). I’m trying to make it a regular feature, but honestly, I’m not sure I’ll keep up with it like I should. All I can do is try.

Favorite posts this week:

The Pioneer Woman: I buried the lede

I have followed Ree’s blog for a very long time, even before she was Food Network’s golden child. I was once a strict mommy blogger and she was doing the same – blogging about her life on her ranch and photographing it as well. I followed a photography feature she had at one point. Though her name is now big business she still blogs from time to time. In this post she writes about her oldest daughter graduating college and her and her husband’s new ice cream shop.

This post by The Lily Cafe about miscarriage hit home for me. She writes about what she could have used after her miscarriage 26 years ago. A hint: it wasn’t comfort or talking non-stop about the miscarriage.

Michelle at Blessings by Me wrote this great post about vertical gardening which interested me because my daughter wants a garden this year but I don’t want to dig up the ground since we could be moving in a few months.

Jenni from The Wilde Way, a new blog for me, caught my attention with a post called Mother’s Day: A Reconciliation. I could relate to the idea of not being sure if I liked Mother’s Day because I often felt like I didn’t deserve the honor.

Another one that hit home for me was from Brittany at Ordinarily Extraordinary Mom about making friends later in life. Boy, could I appreciate the advice on how to make friends when you’re no longer a kid or a young mom. I’m in a period of life where I have no friends so I can use all the help I can get.

How about you? Read any cool blog posts this week that you’d like to share? Let me know in the comments or link me to one of your own!
