I love new people visiting my blog . And I personally love to visit other new blogs. I love to connect with others and learn and from them and their experiences. I love to share advice and tips and, well, just chat and get to know other people. Everyone has a story to tell and lessons to be learned from. And over the last week I’ve connected with several great new blogs. And this gave me an idea. Since my personal goal is to meet new people and find new blogs to connect with each week, I decided to start a Friday Feature** section on my blog (logo for this to come soon!).
Today, on my first Feature Friday I would like to share with you It Keeps Getting Better. And not just because she posted gardening and landscaping photos for me on her blog!!
The author of this blog, Ashley is my cousin on my dad’s side of the family. Growing up we went to the farm every Sunday for homemade chicken soup. Her grandparents owned the farm and hosted the family there all the time. Everyone was welcome there regardless of the day, time or reason. There was always food on the table and people visiting. We had family holidays there and spent countless hours hanging out with family.
Ashley and I grew up as little girls running around the farm, playing in the barn and helping with the garden. Over the years as our teenage lives got busier and family gatherings became fewer and further between, I lost contact with Ashley. But over the last year or so we connected again through our blogs and even though I haven’t actually seen in her in years (she lives in MN and us in GA) and have not met her cute little kiddos, I feel like I know them thanks to our blogs.
But not only is Ashley family, I also respect her as a mommy, a wife, a friend and a blogger. I love that she updates her blog regularly and shares not only the good, but the not so good as well. She was even featured as Parent of the Month for a blog on MSN called “The Family Room”. You can check out her post and article here.
Stop by her blog, leave a comment and tell her I sent you over 😉
