Blog Crushes

I was reading Jessah's latest blog post Crush Crush Baby at http://www.dreamingofdimples.com/ about her favorite blogs, and decided that I wanted to join in on the band wagon.  I am a sucker for recognition, both giving and receiving.  I admit it.  I like to be loved.  But I also really, really enjoy giving that love back in return!  So I am sharing in the Blog Crush Link_Up and showing some love.

There are SOOOooooooo many blogs that I love, but I have to narrow it down to a few of my favorites or I will be here all night.


I already mentioned Jessah above, but she is worthy of a second mention.  She writes such an inspiring blog and always seems to focus on the positive, even though she is dealing with infertility.  She makes you want to be a better person.
 
 

Teresa is a fellow Oregonian that I had an instant connection with and I truly feel like I can call a friend.  She has a great sense of humor, an insane addiction to peeing on OPK's, has started a postcard swap, a book club, and just seems to keep coming up with great ideas to help us bloggers connect with each other.
 
This gal is just flippin' hilarious.  I laugh out loud almost every time I read her blog posts.  I don't even know her name, but I always look forward to reading new posts from her.  Even when writing about a serious topic, her sense of humor seems to always shine through.
 
Risa is another blogger that writes with a great sense of humor.  I find myself smiling often when I read her blog.  She writes in a way that sucks you in and makes you want to read more.  I feel like I can connect with her on a personal level because she just seems so real.
 
I have just recently found Em a few weeks ago.  I am drawn to her because she is so sincere and has such a loving and sweet nature about her.  She shares about her struggles with infertility and the joys and heartaches of being a parent.  The love she has for her family and for God is apparent in everything she writes.
 
This is one of the very first blogs I read from beginning to end.  I am so invested in her and her husband's journey to parenthood via surrogacy.  They have had a long road to get to where they are now, newly pregnant with twins!

Kimberly/No Good Eggs
I have learned a lot from reading Kim's blog.  She is very informative and devoted to sharing her story of using an egg donor so that others may learn from her experience.  She has also been extremely supportive of so many other bloggers, always giving comments that are words of encouragement.

There are so many other bloggers that I would love to recognize here as well.  I feel guilty for those that I haven't mentioned, but I literally could be here all night.  Just know that I love you!  That might seem a little weird, but the truth is, I DO love reading all of your blogs!  I have enjoyed this blogging community tremendously.  I wish I had found all of you at the start of my infertility struggle.  I feel like I could be true friends with so many of you in real life, if we ever had a chance to meet.  Thank you for sharing your hearts, your love and support, your struggles.  Thank you for sharing YOU with me!

  4. Thanks so much! I really enjoy your blog as well and will have to make sure I am following the teat of these! We are actually doing egg donation with my husband's sperm rather than embryo adoption. Thanks for posting this!

    Amber, I feel the same way. I don't care if it is because we are both Oregonians and Beaver fans or what... but there is definite chemistry here. LOL! I am so thankful to have found you and your blog and even more thankful to have found your friendship. Thank you so much for everything! Hugs!!!
    P.S. I think many of the blogs you mentioned are awesome! I am excited to check out the ones I haven't seen!
