2015 Blogger Year In Review | Favorite Bloggers

Wow, what a week!  Noah caught a cold at the end of last week, and while he seems to be improving this week, Chris and I caught it.  Chris got better after 2 good nights of sleep, but mine just won't quit.  I guess being a mom and being on call 24/7 regardless of being sick prolongs the process!  I almost always get sick in December, which is horrible in my opinion since it is already such a busy time of year.  We have so many fun things planned and I hate missing out on things because I don't feel 100%!  

Today I'm back with the third and final installment of the 2015 Blogger Year in Review Linkup.  I feel like December is the perfect time to look back on the year and prepare for the new year.  I am currently deciding whether to make resolutions or stick to my "one word" and monthly goals like I did this year.  Not only am I reflecting on my personal life, I have also been reflecting on the year according to the blog.  That's why I am so excited to be co-hosting this 2015 Blogger Year in Review linkup!  I have really loved sharing some great blogging moments from the past year!  First, I shared some of my most popular (and my favorite) posts.  Last week, I shared a few blog related things I've learned this year.  And today I am finishing the series by sharing some of my favorite blogs I think you should be reading.  I hope you enjoy and link up with us as well!  This last week's link up will remain open until 12/31/15, so feel free to keep posting and linking up until the end of the year :)

When I had the idea for this post, I thought I'd just name 5 of my favorite blogs.  But then I realized that was impossible since there are so many amazing blogs out there!  So instead, I decided to break it down into 5 categories and name my favorite blogs for each one.  Let me clarify that many of these blogs could be in multiple categories, these ladies are multi-dimensional!  Not only do I love reading their blogs, but I've formed some great friendships with many of these amazing women.  If you aren't already reading these blogs, you should be!

One - Blogs I just relate to

There are a few blogs that I love reading because I just seem to nod my head in agreement to so many things they post about.  That doesn't mean we agree on every topic (that would be boring), but I can find so many similarities with these amazing women that I think we'd be best buds if we lived in the same state!

 Chasin' Mason, Tiny Toes, Little Nose, Meet the Sullivans
Wife Mommy Me, Being Brickner, The Girl in the Red Shoes

Two - Blogs that crack me up

These four moms just have a way with words.  They have a knack for describing the reality of motherhood in a hilarious way.  They share the good, bad, and the ugly but do it in such an endearing way.  I wish I could write like these beautiful ladies!

Three - Blogs that give me photo envy

While bloggers naturally seem to be amazing photographers, these 4 women just take it to another level.  Some of them are doing it professionally, and the others should be!!!  It also doesn't hurt that their kids are all stinking adorable!

Four - Blogs that encourage me to be creative

While I love doing crafts with Noah, I find my level of creativity is very preschool, maybe kindergarten ;)  But these four ladies are truly inspiring!  Whether it's planning parties, DIY projects, or fun kid crafts and activities, these ladies are amazing!

Five - Large blogs that inspire me

These eight blogs definitely don't need a shoutout from me... they already have a huge following!  They have lots of readers and have managed to turn it into an actual career.  I'm constantly impressed with the content and quality of their daily posts.  They inspire me to be more creative, have better photography, and post on a regular basis.  While some of them are lifestyle blogs, I also love reading home decor/organizing and fashion blogs.  I definitely appreciate the variety :)

Any blogs I missed that I should be reading??

I'm also linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday" and with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday"!
