Playing Catch Up

I awoke to 393 blog posts in my email box this morning. I’m a bit behind. Life is crazy busy around here. I won’t bore you with the details, it’s just life as we know it right now. Somehow the moments speed by and get sucked up into the clouds never to return, and before I know it, I’ve only accomplished three things on my 20 item to-do list and I wake up to 393 emails, dogs that want to be walked before my normal morning routine, people who want to see the house before I’m ready… You know, life.

Usually I check in each day to see what’s going on in the blogging world. There are so many talented and creative bloggers out there, it’s impossible to just follow a few.

Knowing full well that my to-do list was going to remain right where I left it…undone, I made myself a hearty breakfast this morning and made my way up to my office with dogs in tow. “Just give me a bit and we’ll go to the park and chase the ball!”

As I ate my breakfast, I went through each post in my in box. No rushing, no skipping, just taking the time to savor each post and all of the hard work and creativity that goes into putting one’s self “out there” for all the world to see and comment. In case you don’t have a blog, you may not know that it can be a little nerve-wracking being a blogger. Many food bloggers share their lives on their blogs as well as what’s cooking in their kitchen. I especially love to read those! It’s almost like I’m sitting at their kitchen counter with them visiting and catching up on what’s new in life.

So today, I’m going to share my breakfast and bit of my blogger in box with you. You’ll be amazed, just as I am every day at the talent in this world, the honesty, the creativity, and the beauty.

Here are just a few I love, enjoy!

  3. I’m amazed that you read all 393! I’ve been away for the past few days and currently have 78 in my reader, and I’m feeling a little stressed about it… I need to take a page out of your book and take some me time to read through them and enjoy it. Thanks for including me in your list, as well.
