Bloggy Friends

   I recently joined Blogelina, a new site for Bloggers.
While I am definitely not a beginning blogger, I have learned a few things.

    Ive also been paired up with some great ladies in a little group to offer support and encouragement to each other. I can't tell you how great it is to get feedback from some one outside of your blog.

    I wanted to introduce my readers to my new bloggy friends and their wonderful Blogs.

Ashley C Thompson
 Owner of And the Little Ones too 

I'm a "mom" blogger that writes little pieces of our lives. I am a cloth diapering, baby wearing mom that loves to do reviews and giveaways of products and books. I have 2 wonderful boys that I love taking pictures of! 

Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink? What's that all about?
I always try to be optimistic and well "put a little umbrella in my drink". It is a metaphor for my take on easy peasy ways to make your life more glamorous and lovely without being a gazillionaire sipping a pina colada on a beach. You may just be sipping on a Vitamin Water or a sweet tea in your living room {my personal faves}. Add a little umbrella, you will see what I mean!

So what do you write about?
I write about finding fabulous online deals, my hobbies which include paper crafting and photography, with some what's going on in my life thrown in. I also love finding new and innovative products to review and giveaway.

Theresa Grisanti 
Owner of It's a Mom's World
Since I was young I dreamed of "living off the grid." To me this meant having the focus of time and attention on nothing but providing for my family. Through the years I see how my commitment to creating a sustainable community and environment has taught me some of the skills necessary to for fulfilling that dream. We aren't there yet but even in the midst of the suburbs we are striving for the clean living I imagine to one day take part in.

For now I blog about what it means to tap into the power of nature to provide for my family. I study herbs and their uses for healing and health, I experiment with new health products to determine their effectiveness in healing, I preserve food all summer to provide for my family in the winter, I am learning (slowly) how to garden, and teaching my children how to act responsibly in caring for our environment. I weave all these things into my children's life whenever possible and hope they see the value in caring for the earth as they grow older.

Someday I will have my oasis in the country. We will live in a house we design and build powered by renewable energy, grow our own food and live as locally and respectfully from the earth as possible. Until then, we use our daily lives to experiment with what works best as we balance our life between technology/consumerism and sustaining our environment.

I started blogging because I have had diabetes since I was 17 months old. I woke up one day feeling that I had more potential than what I had achieved thus far in my life. Plus, as a diabetic I have dealt with doctors my whole life who recommended artificial sweeteners and prescriptions to the diabetic population, which only kill you faster, so I decided "who better to write about it than a person who has lived with it and experienced the disease firsthand and found natural alternatives"...and maybe even help others or at least give them some information they weren't able to get from "doctors".

So here are a few of my bloggy friends. Stop by their sites, they are great ladies with great blogs!  If you are looking to make some friends of your own, stop by Time4Mommy's New Community.

Nevermind, I can't check out that site, lol. I didn't realize it was just for blogging mom's, and I'm not a mom.
