Congratulations to Melissa (blog poster from Green Giveaways!), our winner of the Rockin’ Green bag and magnetic scoop.  Melissa, I will be in touch shortly!

For the rest of you, watch out for more chances to win–I’m catching up from our camping trip (more on that later…), but I will be posting a new giveaway either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Link love: a great article to read

So lately I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed just by life, and family, and the prospect of adding to all that with the upcoming birth of this little one, and wondering how I can possibly get it all done … and possibly do it *well* either.  And I’ve been thinking a lot about what we really matters to me, what I can possibly cut out, what matters to other people but really isn’t at the top of my priorities.

Anyways, Simple Mom’s Simple Homeschool offshoot has a great article today on this: “On Being Busy or Being Full”… and I think most moms will be able to relate.  Check it out and tell me what you think.

P.S.  I’m venturing out on my first camping trip tonight, so this week’s winner won’t be posted until Sunday when I get back.

Spotlight: Mothering Magazine

So today’s spotlight is on a recent discovery of mine: Mothering Magazine!  I was blessed to be given a subscription as a birthday present, and I am so thankful!  Mothering is definitely an attachment parenting-oriented parenting magazine, which sets it apart from many others out there.  And even though not all of the information is brand new to me, I always manage to learn something new.  I definitely recommend it!  They offer print and digital subscriptions through their website, and their site also has a wealth of other resources.
