Follow Friday

Good Morning! It is FINALLY Friday. The wine is chilling, the dinner is prepped (yes, I've made homemade mac&cheese to be tossed in the oven and served with hot dogs this evening...and it's only 8am) and the boss will be in a Partner Meeting a good portion of the afternoon. Life. Is. Sweet.

So you all know that I've had a recent encounter with a social networking site that I am JUST in love with. Since becoming a user of Twitter I have been linked up to so many awesome bloggers - new moms, experienced moms, crafters, artists, etc. I was skeptical at first, but I'm really very happy that my good friend Miranda forced suggested that I join up.

I know that Twitter isn't everyone's cup of tea though. I get it. I used to be you. I also know that there are bloggers out there that are awesome and that I'm sure many of my readers would love to read. Enter Follow Friday.

Every Friday (hopefully) I will be featuring a new blogger that I love and that I would like to share with my readers.

Today's Follow Friday featured blogger is Miranda at Not Super...Just Mom. Yes, the same Miranda that introduced me to Twitter. Go figure.

Miranda and I met several years (years?? is that possible?) on a social networking site geared specifically for those trying to conceive and those that already have children. Coincidentally we went through most of our pregnancy together and her ADORABLE son Joshua is just a few weeks younger than Keagan.

I think our friendship was sealed when she said to me in response to my "OMG I just ate three GINORMOUS cookies!" post by saying "Growing a human is hard work and deserves to be rewarded with cookies from time to time. Particularly since we have to give up chardonnay."

Through the past couple of years we've gotten to know eachother in that way that you only seem to do over the internet. While we've never officially *met* I consider her a friend, a mentor and most definitely someone that I would like to polish off a (big) bottle of wine with.

Miranda has a fantastic blog Not Super...Just Mom where she documents the life and times of a full-time teacher, full-time mother, full-time (self described) band geek. She is also one of the first bloggers (and friends) that I read that talks openly about being a PPD survivor, something that many new moms can relate to, even if they don't talk about it.

Please check out Not Super...Just Mom and become a follower. You won't regret it.
