Welcome to our weekly feature “Know Your Birdies” where every Friday a question is posed and you get to know us through our answers. This week we’ve asked… and answered: What is one of your must read blogs?
I don’t know if I should admit this, but I have many daily-must-read blogs. I read Pop Candy on USA Today for all things indie pop culture related. I read Young House Love for DIY decorating inspiration. I read my husband’s photography blog, because he is the jelly to my peanut butter. Religiously, I read the Pleated Poppy on Wednesday’s for What I Wore Wednesday, and Melissa Loves on Tuesday’s for Cheap for Chic. But one I love and must devour each and every day is Ashley Ann’s Under the Sycamore. I am inspired by her craftiness. I enjoy her perspective on being a stay-at-home mom. I love her pictures of everything from her home to her sweet kids. And I totally share her passion to soon adopt a child. She’s relatable, approachable, and kind of seems like a lot of fun. (Gosh, I hope I didn’t just break the rules by mentioning 6 blogs! Oops.)
My favorite blog is local reporter Jaimee Rose’s blog. I have been a big fan of her’s since I was in college and she wrote for Y.E.S. I love her style, she seems to have the same “But does it come in black?” proclivity that I am afflicted with. The blog is always filled with lots of local love, from activities to venues to eateries, it is a fabulous resource for Phoenicians that are tired of Harkins and Chili’s on date nights. She also highlights books, fashion, shopping and travel. If you are looking for swoonworthy entertaining ideas, she is your girl. Her blog is the blog I save for last in my google reader (btw does that mean the same thing to anyone else?)
I am a total blog-aholic. I am constantly having to painfully edit down my Google Reader list because it is getting too large to manage. There are just that many amazing sites out there! With that being said, one of my most favorite blogs is Oh Happy Day! I’m sure you’ve seen me mention Jordan Ferney and her fantastic ideas a million times here. Her blog is brimming with entertaining inspiration, gorgeous photography and art, interior design, beautiful typography- you name it! And she is living abroad in Paris with her family for a year. Swoon. Her genius has encouraged me to try out so many DIY projects for parties and home decor, and she even helps lead me to new ideas on my own. Thank you, Jordan! And I second Katrina above- I love Jaimee Rose too!
What about you dear readers? Do you have any beloved blogs to share with us?
