Hello to all the moms out there, wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day today!  I’m looking forward to a relaxing afternoon, but first here’s another round of ‘best of the blogosphere’!  Every two weeks Amanda and I compare notes and come up with our favorite spaces, projects and posts we’ve found online, here are our picks!

Things Learned from Motherhood

May 12th, 2012

Hi everyone, it’s almost Mother’s Day!  I’ll be spending it with my family and I have a sneaking suspicion it will involve a surprise afternoon picnic in Sonoma… okay, maybe not a surprise, I dropped too many hints that’s how I wanted to spend it.  As long as it’s relaxing and involves some wine and cheese, I’m a happy gal. 

Melissa from 320*Sycamore asked me to share some thoughts on motherhood, so hop on over to visit and read five things I’ve learned from being a mom.   things learned from motherhood

Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day!
