I love to read. I read several books at a time and I bounce from blog to blog, reading before bed. Here’s my gift to you this holiday season. My list of favorite reads!

1. Kelle Hampton

This is a mom blog I like to follow. Kelle documents her days with her two daughters through photography.

Honestly, she inspires me to do more as a mom and reminds me that sometimes, the laundry just isn’t going to get folded and that’s okay!

2. Young House Love

A young couple with a funny little dog and a sweet daughter named Clara. They do everything themselves and are super creative in their home design and remodeling.

3. Jessica Sprague

I love digital scrapbooking. I have found a ton of creative ideas from this site. This is also where I have taken several Photoshop and digital scrapbooking classes from.

4. MCP

This is a photography blog that I have been reading all year. I joined a Flicker group called Project 52. With the exception of a few weeks after having our baby, I took a picture a week and submitted it to this photo project! I learned a lot along the way.

5. Eighteen 25 and The Crafting Chicks

I love to craft. Card making, quilting, crocheting, scrapbooking, you name it, I’ve tried it! This site introduced me to Pintrest. It also reminds me how rewarding it is to make things for others.

6. Kris Carr

This is a new blog I am reading. It is all about living a healthy life. I want to be around as long as I can, especially for my little ladies. The documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer motivated me to try a few new supplements in my diet and I am currently looking into including wheatgrass to my life!

7. Best Bites and Simply Scratch

Food. These are two sites I like to check out when planning my weekly means!

8. Friends in Real Life

I have some really great friends (real life pals, not just online friends) who have blogs. I check in on them regularly.

Danielle, Maggie, Carly, Christina, and Emily.

9. The Happiness Project

I read this book a few months ago and loved it! I am taking on my own Happiness Project in the new year!

10. Blog Tour 2012

I also have met some amazing bloggers while planning my blog tour. I will be writing about each of them individually during the blog tour. More on them later.
